Computers and various digital devices are used throughout organizations large and small to operate daily business. The fundamental role of digital systems in business brings with it serious security challenges. Hackers and criminals are constantly attacking all types of organizations. To mitigate such risks, it is important for IT specialists to obtain a comprehensive overview of digital forensics. This specialized graduate certificate program in digital forensics will provide students comprehensive “digital crime scene investigation” knowledge. This program introduces students to forensic analysis policy and procedures, forensic analysis tools, data recovery, and investigation, among other topics.
Digital Forensics - Network Investigation :
Network Forensics is a branch of Digital Forensics that helps collect evidence against cyber criminals and aids in proving their malign intentions. If you want to become a forensic investigator, this network forensics course is the right way forward. Learn about systematically identifying intrusions, gathering information, and collecting legal evidence against black hat hackers and network intruders.
A forensic network investigator is required to scan network devices, client and server systems, firewall, IPS, IDS etc to gather evidence and report a cyber crime. This course teaches professionals how to identify and analyze security attacks. Network Forensics training will include various techniques of network investigation including: NIDS evidence gathering, Acquisition process, Flow Analysis, Protocol Analysis, Wireless Network Analysis, and Event Correlation and Aggregation.
Digital Forensics - Windows Investigation :
Windows Forensics training from Redkite allows forensic investigators to learn critical techniques for cyber crime investigation on a Windows OS. The focus will be on collection and analysis of data from Windows based computer systems to track malicious user activities.
In order to report a cyber crime, a windows forensics investigator would need to gather enough evidence against the perpetrator, which is done through employing various techniques and scanning Microsoft Operating System (Windows Server 2003/2008, Windows 7/ Windows 8 etc). Participants also gain knowledge of dealing with a turned on/off PC and gathering essential evidence from Windows log files, RAM, auto-runs, registries etc.
Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI) V8 :
C|HFI v8 Program certifies individuals in the specific security discipline of computer forensics from a vendor-neutral perspective. Computer Hacking Forensic Investigation is the process of detecting hacking attacks and properly extracting evidence to report the crime and conduct audits to prevent future attacks. Computer forensics is simply the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining potential legal evidence. Evidence might be sought in a wide range of computer crime or misuse, including but not limited to theft of trade secrets, theft of or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud.
CHFI investigators can draw on an array of methods for discovering data that resides in a computer system, or recovering deleted, encrypted, or damaged file information.
