This workshop will go through using PowerShell with offensive and defensive methodologies. Students will learn about existing scripts and tools as well as how to write their own tools for both offense and defense. The first part of the course will focus on attacking followed by how to detect and defend against the attacks. By going through both the offensive and defensive parts with PowerShell, the student will gain a new understanding of both sides of security which will help reinforce and strengthen their current understanding of security. By focusing on PowerShell attacks, the students will be able to focus attacking systems directly from memory as well as how to detect and deflect these types of attacks without having to use any other tool.
