Part of my time at the SANS Cyber Retraining Academy covered the incident response methodology and how to identify what’s wrong and how to fix it. But theory is quite different to the real thing, so I thought it would be useful to make a cheat sheet with a few of the pointers I’ve picked up when it comes to investigating malware activity.
I’ve just arrived back in the UK after spending nearly two weeks travelling across Japan, visiting Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Kyoto. Before I get back to work and the memories start to fade, I wanted to put pen to paper and share some experiences, thoughts, and photos.

It’s almost a year to the day that I left my journalism job and started at the SANS Cyber Retraining Academy, and I’ve written a lot of blog posts about how much I enjoyed the experience and how valuable and life-changing it was.
