Next, attendees will learn the individual components of Empire and how to apply them to execute a red team operation. Key topics that will be taught are building C2 infrastructure, deploying customized payloads in C# and PowerShell, and creating tailored scripts for engagements. Finally, the Empire TTPs learned throughout the course will be tested on a comprehensive range using an emulation plan provided on APT 28.
