The Aurenav Digital Forensics Examiner course is case based. Meaning every student completes a forensic analysis on a scenario based on an actual real-world case. This assures that every student can perform a digital forensic examination from start to finish by the time the course is completed.
Students work on and complete the forensic analysis throughout the five days of class. During this time the students not only learn about forensic tools, but they can see and practice firsthand how to apply what is learned. This approach results in better retention of what has been learned, and gives the student a process to follow for all forensic examinations, regardless of the software tools being used.
Very little time is spent in class reviewing slides and going over information that the students can read themselves - the majority of time is spent processing a case with the students and encouraging students to interact with the instructor to make sure they understand all aspects of properly processing a case in a forensically sound fashion that will stand up to scrutiny in a court of law.
An exam is held on the last day of course and is included in the price. Participants that pass the exam with a score of 85% or higher will earn a certification with the title Digital Forensics Examiner and 4 CEUs* (recognized by the ISC2 and similar organizations) plus 5 college credits.
Why Digital Forensics?
Being knowledgeable in digital forensics will help you ensure the overall integrity and survivability of your network infrastructure and computer systems. You can help your organization if you consider digital forensics as a new basic element in what is known as a "defense-in-depth" approach to network and computer security. For instance, understanding the legal and technical aspects of digital forensics will help you capture vital information if your network is compromised or if you have an employee that is using computer resources inappropriately. If practicing digital forensics is ignored within an organization, destroying vital evidence or having forensic evidence ruled inadmissible in a court of law will be an inevitable result. Also, the organization may run afoul of laws that mandate regulatory compliance and assign liability if certain types of data are not adequately protected. As The EU Data Protection Act and numerous Cyber Crime Laws specify, there are penalties for those interfering with or compromising information systems - you need to be aware of these laws and how they affect your organization.
