This 2-day course is designed for corporate and government investigators who want to gain a basic understanding of best practices in digital forensics acquisition and analysis, as well as learn specific skills through practical, hands-on exercises.
ACQUISITION AND ANALYSIS OF DIGITAL EVIDENCE
Today’s digital landscape presents a variety of challenges for investigators looking to uncover potentially criminal behavior in business or government environments. Vast computer networks, different operating systems, malware, software discrepancies, advanced cell phone technology and varying file formats make for an almost overwhelming task for an investigator charged with examining computer crimes and abuse such as fraud, employee misconduct or identity theft. To help investigators meet the challenges presented by modern technology, participation in this Forensic Acquisition and Analysis class can be an invaluable tool.
“LEARN BY DOING” APPROACH
All of our courses are designed to teach you not only the theory, but the practical skills that you can immediately employ upon return to your office or lab. Throughout the duration of Forensic Acquisition and Analysis, you will learn the fundamentals of digital forensic techniques, including evidence acquisition and data analysis. Instead of endless lectures, we balance our instruction by emphasizing hands-on experience in a team-based environment that enables all students to keep pace. From the first day of class, you will be learning by doing computer forensics.
