Short Course in Digital Forensics and Investigations


Event Information

Event Name: Short Course in Digital Forensics and Investigations
Date:    2014/05/05   Price: R 11650.00      


Brief Description:
Digital Forensics and Investigations is a short course to teach the basic theoretical concepts of digital forensics as well as the practical side of digital forensics, i.e. how to conduct digital forensic investigations. This course is, therefore, designed for a wide range of people including, but not limited to, law enforcers, crime investigators, managers in larger organisations, technical personnel in larger organisations, and anyone else interested in a general background of digital forensics. Digital forensics is a relatively new and upcoming field. It is a field that is not well known by most organisations and therefore, such organisations are ill informed about the digital forensic procedures required to conduct a successful digital forensic investigation.

Learning Outcomes:
After completing this course, delegates will have gained theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical experience in digital forensic investigations. The digital forensic process is the crux of any digital forensic investigation, and delegates will have learnt the importance of following the digital forensic process properly. Delegates will have gained experience in several areas of digital forensic investigations, including hardware forensics, software forensics, network forensics and live forensics. In addition, a delegate will also gain insight into ethics and law aspects of digital forensics. The strong hands-on practical component on the course will equip delegates to apply the digital forensic skills acquired by being able to set up their own digital forensic laboratory after completing the course.

Course Content:
- Introduction to Digital Forensics
- The Digital Forensic Process Overview
- Hardware Forensics
