Computer Forensics Training Course with hands-on Exercises

Computer Forensics Training – Take your system-based forensic knowledge onto the wire. Incorporate network evidence into your investigations, provide better findings, and get the job done faster.

Forensic casework that does not include a network component is a rarity in today’s environment. Performing disk forensics will always be a critical and foundational skill for this career, but overlooking the network component of today’s computing architecture is akin to ignoring security camera footage of a crime as it was committed. Whether you handle an intrusion incident, data theft case, or employee misuse scenario, the network often has an unparalleled view of the incident. Its evidence can provide the proof necessary to show intent, or even definitively prove that a crime actually occurred.

The rate of fraud, abuse and downright criminal activity on IT systems by hackers, contractors and even employees are reaching alarming rates. Corporate IT, Law Enforcement and Information Security Pros are often required to perform computer forensics duties on their jobs. In terms of job growth, nothing beats computer forensics as a career, and no one can beat InfoSec Institute as the best place to learn from a computer forensics training expert. Computer crime is here to stay. Computer Forensics Specialists are needed by today’s companies to determine the root cause of a hacker attack, collect evidence legally admissible in court, and protect corporate assets and reputation. The best way to become a forensics expert is to attend a training session with a computer forensics training expert.
