This webcast was originally recorded live on August 15th, 2019 with John Strand.

In almost every BHIS webcast we talk about how important application whitelisting and Sysmon are to a healthy security infrastructure. And yet, we have not done a single webcast on these two topics.

Let’s fix that.

In this webcast, we cover how to implement Sysmon and Applocker. We cover overall strategies for implementation and how to deploy them via Group Policy. 

We walk through a basic sample of malware and show how both of these technologies react to it. 

Finally, we cover a couple of different “bypass” techniques for each.  Everything in security has weaknesses, and these two technologies are no exception.
