Advanced Computer Forensics

The Advanced Computer Forensics course provides students with the skills and tools necessary to investigate and analyze digital evidence. In this course, students will learn how to use various forensic tools, including computer analysis software, search engines, and forensic databases. Students will also explore investigative techniques, such as footprinting and data acquisition. This course is perfect for anyone who wants to become a digital investigator or forensic analyst.

RAM forensics analysis and acquisition is a process of examining the contents of RAM chips on computers in order to extract data that may be useful in investigations. RAM chips are often used as a temporary holding area for data while the computer is running, so they can often contain sensitive information like passwords or other confidential files.

The live acquisition is a powerful tool for computer forensics investigations. It allows investigators to access data and information from a computer system in real-time. This is useful for investigating crimes that have been committed on the system, as well as retrieving data that may be important for the investigation.

However, the live acquisition has several potential benefits and drawbacks. The main advantage is that it allows investigators to gather evidence quickly and effectively. However, this can also be risky if the computer system is infected with malware or if there are security flaws present in the system. Additionally, live acquisition can be intrusive and distracting for the users of the computer system, which could lead to inaccurate or incomplete information being obtained.

You will Learn

  • RAM forensics analysis and acquisition
  • Forensics elements in the Windows registry and how to examine those elements
  • Pros and cons of live forensics acquisitions
  • Basics of testifying in a court of law
  • Examination of non-traditional devices such as smart devices, Gaming systems, and drones
Free Course:  Introduction to Computational Logic

This course is designed for people with a working knowledge of computer forensics but looking to go deeper into specific skills and techniques of the field.  We cover techniques and examine devices that are more volatile or more difficult to access than a standard PC acquisition.  This is the third course following my previous course Computer Forensics Fundamentals and Intermediated Computer Forensics.  While those courses are recommended it is not required to take this course as they are independent in regard to topics taught.  

Advanced Computer Forensics will provide: 

  • Ram Acquisition and Analysis
  • Windows registry forensics
    • Hives and NTUSER.dat
  • USB and network connections
  • Live forensic acquisitions
  • Search Signatures
  • Non-traditional devices (Internet of Things), games systems, drones, and camera systems
  • Testifying in a court of law

The course will consist of presentations to explain the concepts of computer forensics as well as demonstrations of proper software and collections of digital evidence, using primarily open-source or free software so that students can replicate the demonstrations on their own. Quizzes will reinforce the concepts.

This course is designed for anyone with an interest in computer forensics to get a deeper taste of the real world of digital forensics examination. 

As an advanced course, it will consist of presentations, hands-on lessons, and quizzes.
