The 27th Annual Computer Security Applications Conference invites students to participate in Tracer FIRE, a two-day forensic and incident response exercise and competition being held on Dec 5 - 6 in Orlando, FL.  After a morning training in forensics and incident response, attendees will be broken into teams and will participate in a competition that will require them to apply what they have learned to solve cyber security challenges.
Tracer FIRE, (Forensic and Incident Response Exercise), is a program developed by Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories to educate and train cyber security incident responders (CSIRs) and analysts in critical skill areas, and to improve collaboration and teamwork among staff members. Under this program, several hundred CSIRs from the Department of Energy and other U.S. government agencies have been trained. In Tracer FIRE, attendees will learn about a variety of topics in the areas of incident response, forensic investigation and analysis, file systems, memory layout and malware analysis. Tracer FIRE includes a mixture of lecture, hands-on training, and competitive exercises designed to provide the attendees with the knowledge and practice to apply what they have learned in a real-world situation (one- or two-day format available).
