Course Description

In Incident Handling Fundamentals, David Biser describes what an incident looks like and effective ways to handle an incident. There is no single definition of an incident, and it varies across standards and organizations. It is important to have a clear idea of what an incident looks like because, in more than 50% of cases, organizations are informed by a third party about a breach. The instructor discusses tool like SOAR and various analysis resources, as well as forensic tools to effectively handle incidents.

Hello! My name is David and I live in the western region of Maryland, where the deer and the black bears do roam! I have been involved in Cyber Security for over 10 years as a criminal investigator,penetration tester, digital forensic analyst and incident responder. I hold multiple certificates in the cyber security field and spend my time reviewing logs, conducting forensic investigations and teaching. I enjoy cyber security so much that I teach at a local college to encourage and help others both enter the field and expand their career options.

When I am not working on something cyber I enjoy a wide range of activities (provided my back allows it!). I hike, hunt, fish, read a wide variety of material and spend time with my family.
