CALL FOR EXPERTS: Join the Development of the Cyber Investigator's Handbook

The NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (CCDCOE) is launching a project to provide the cyber community with guidelines on best practices when handling cyber incidents. To broaden the scope and relevance of the handbook, CCDCOE researchers are inviting external collaborators to join the project team. External experts are invited to sign up by 28th February 2021.

The output of this project will be a comprehensive handbook detailing all the steps that a Cyber Investigator should take to mitigate a cyber incident or threat. The Handbook will be first of its kind to cover all the main steps in managing a cyber incident in one volume: incident response, forensics, network analysis and security information and event management (SIEM).

The CCDCOE is seeking to broaden the scope of contributors to ensure that the best practical examples and lessons inspired by real life situations will be included.

To that end, the Centre is inviting forensics, malware and network monitoring specialists to join the project team. Registration is open until 28th February 2021 here.

The project period is expected to be one year and the Handbook is expected to be published by the beginning of 2022.

Experts eligible for this project are from CCDCOE member nations and NATO partner countries and international organisations partnered with the Alliance.
