Though typical malware delivery vectors, behaviors, and general attack craft can be verbally explained and even illustrated, greater familiarity and confidence is imbued in the cyber defender when such theoretical explanations are followed by guided practical exercises that provide realistic scenarios. To demonstrate this, we created seven scenarios utilizing common attack types combined with prominent artifacts for indicators of compromise and prominent incident investigative tools. These scenarios will help facilitate the educational experience for students as well as instill confidence, resulting in more proficient incident response across the field. Should this type of education become a part of the NPS curriculum, additional research can be conducted to reaffirm its true capacity.
