My Next Research Area: Incident Response

by Anton Chuvakin  |  May 23, 2013  |  3 Comments

It is with GREAT excitement that I am pre-announcing my next area of research focus – security incident response.

In brief, here is what I have in mind for the next few months:

  • Host and Malware Forensics Tools and Practices (title tentative), an assessment of the endpoint investigation tool scene (to complement my just-finished report on network forensics)
  • Incident Response in the Age of APT (title tentative), a guidance to doing incident response (from tools to teams!) in the modern era of industrial cyber-crime, APT and also cloud/virtual/mobile environments.

Some of the vendors I am speaking with or planning to speak are Crowdstrike, Mandiant,  Guidance Software, Carbon Black, some anti-malware/EPP vendors (who actually think  rather than milk). And of course, as with all Gartner GTP research, I am planning to have lots of conversations with enterprise CIRTs, other end users and whatever others sources of current IR wisdom…
