Resources

On this page, you will find a list of online resources that have been compiled and categorised into five distinct sections. These resources are primarily focused on content in the field of Digital Forensics and Incident Response, however, other related topics have been included where applicable such as; Malware Analysis, Reverse Engineering, Networking, etc.

To make browsing through them easier, the resources have been categorised into five different sections, which are described as follows:

.

AGGREGATES

This section contains information about websites which collate a wealth of information about their chosen topic (DFIR) and provide an excellent all-in-one starting point for anyone wanting to expand their knowledge in the subject area. I would highly recommend browsing through the entirety of the resources listed in this section. They collectively provide a comprehensive amount of information that is much more in-depth and expansive than what is provided here.

.

BOOKS

This section contains a list of books mostly focused on the topic of DFIR which I personally recommend anyone, whether beginner or expert, throughly read or take notes from to use as a reference. I have included a brief description for each one surmising their topic and overall content.

.

COMMUNITY

This section is mainly aimed at individuals that want to find an avenue into the wider community associated with the DFIR industry. Included in this section are popular social media pages, YouTube channels and online forums that I personally find helpful in this regard.

.

PRACTICE

I believe it is invaluable for an individual to be able to put their knowledge into practice, both recreationally and professionally. Hence, this section contains a list of resources allowing both newcomers and professionals alike to practice using resources such as Capture-The-Flag style scenarios or technical challenges. Note that not all of the challenges listed in this section will be exclusive to the field of DFIR.

.

USEFUL

This section is intended to be an expanding catch-all of useful resources such as; blogs, repositories, tutorials, guides, papers and research covering a wide range of topics that are not just exclusive to DFIR. These resources are typically ones that I could not acutely categorise in any of the other sections on this page and comprise of information that I find very handy to have as a quick reference.

All links listed in these sections are working at the time of writing and will be updated as soon as possible if found to be altered. If there is anything you would like to see added or expanded upon, please let me known using the ‘contact’ form, or send me a direct message on Twitter.
