Software training firm InfiniteSkills Inc. introduces its "Learning Computer Forensics Training Video," a training course designed for students and professionals as a broad introduction to the growing field of computer forensics.
Computer forensics is a branch of digital forensic science that focuses on evidence found in computers and other digital storage sites. Computer forensics seeks to analyze digital content in accordance with the fundamentals of forensic science in order to establish legally credible facts and opinions about the information.
With a growing relevance to many types of criminal activity, computer forensics typically relates to issues of fraud, computer hacking, and illegal content. Forensic investigations are involved in data recovery and attempt to establish a legal audit trail.
InfiniteSkills Learning Computer Forensics Training Video covers key areas in the fundamentals of computer forensics, providing a broad understanding of the field, its intersection with legal situations, and covering some basic forensic recovery procedures.
Course author Ric Messier has been an IT professional for nearly 30 years. With a primary focus in network security, he has performed numerous forensic investigations for corporations and law enforcement agencies. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional and a Certified Ethical Hacker, and currently teaches on the college level at Champlain and Brandeis Universities.
In Learning Computer Forensics Video Tutorial, Messier begins by painting a vivid picture of the intersection between law and digital information, covering topics such as chain of custody, evidence acquisition, data validation, and ethics for experts testifying in legal cases.
Messier then provides an overview of different types of investigations and various tools and modes of investigation, covering types of investigations, investigation preparation, and basic procedures such as acquiring disk images, working with volatile information, recovering disk images, and how to work with hard drives and much more.
"The course opens a lot of doors for users to go and investigate specific areas," Messier says. "After completing the course, students will have a firm understanding of the digital forensics field, and be ready to choose their path of further study."
