Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
EC-Council’s flagship hacking conference, Hacker Halted, will host Advanced Mobile Hacking & Forensics at Hacker Halted Academy. This 3-day course will focus on the type of knowledge required to perform the common tasks executed by today’s Mobile Forensics practitioner. Among the advanced areas this course will be covering are the intricacies of manual acquisition (physical vs. logical), advanced analysis using reverse engineering and understanding how the popular Mobile OSs are hardened to defend against common attacks and exploits.
“Digital Mobile Forensics is fast becoming a lucrative and constantly evolving field, this is no surprise as the mobile phone industry has been witnessing some unimaginable growth, some experts say it may even replace the Computer for those only wishing to send and receive emails.” Explained Mr. Burke, who frequently shares his expertise through his trainings and consulting services for world-renowned corporations including Yahoo, Xerox, AT&T and Texas Instruments.
Mr. Burke went on to explain, “As this area of digital forensics grows in scope and size due to the prevalence and proliferation of mobile devices and as the use of these devices grows, more evidence and information important to investigations will be found on them. To ignore examining these devices would be negligent and result in incomplete investigations. This growth has now presented new and growing career opportunities for interested practitioners in corporate, enforcement, and military settings. Mobile forensics is certainly here to stay as every mobile device is different and different results will occur based on that device requiring unique expertise.”
