The QACRIA course leads to the CREST Registered Intrusion Analyst (CRIA) examination, which supports career advancement in incident response.
This is the first cross discipline course of its' kind that covers the essential knowledge and hands-on practical skills needed for intrusion detection, incident handling, computer/network forensics and malware reverse engineering.
This course raises the bar and sets a new security baseline for existing practitioners and aspiring Intrusion Analysis and Digital Forensics professionals. Every team member should take this course at some point along their career path. Following this course a student may challenge the CREST core skills exam resulting in the CREST Registered Intrusion Analyst (CRIA) professional qualification.
You will learn how to detect an attack, how to handle it, how to trace and acquire the evidence, investigate, analyse and re-construct the incident. We then lay the groundwork for malware analysis by presenting the key tools and techniques malware analysts use to examine malicious programs. Practical exercises throughout ensure that the skills learned can be put to work immediately and that you are prepared for the CRIA practical exam.
A pass at CPIA level is a pre-requisite for the Intrusion Analyst examination.

CREST Registered Intrusion Analyst (CRIA)
The technical syllabus for Intrusion Analysis identifies at a high level the technical skills and knowledge that CREST expects candidates to possess for the Certification examinations in this area. The CREST Registered Intrusion Analyst (CRIA) examination is a practical assessment where the candidate will be expected to perform basic network intrusion analysis, host intrusion analysis, and malware reverse engineering. A pass at CPIA level is a pre-requisite for the Registered Intrusion Analyst examination and success at both CPIA and CRIA will confer the CREST Registered status to the individual. An individual passing the CPIA but failing the practical element, which is the CRIA exam, will still retain the CPIA Practitioner certificate and may apply to re-take the CRIA practical exam at a later date, when they feel that they are ready to do so.
