Blue Team Workshop - M365 and Azure AD

J.R. Goldman and Arpan Sarkar

Vectra AI

The Blue Team Workshop is an educational, hands-on training to help security analysts and leaders experience first-hand how to detect and response to advanced attacks in a simulated enterprise environment. Participants will sharpen their analysis, hunting and defending skills. Through examination of a real-world advanced attack, participants will walk away with a better understanding how to analyze behavior-based indicators that occur post-compromise. No special tools are needed for this fun, interactive training. Basic attack skills and knowledge of Linux/Kali required.
