Accelerated and taught in seven days, this in-depth course teaches students critical techniques and information about identifying, preserving, extracting, analyzing, and reporting forensic evidence on computers and mobile devices through use of the most popular computer forensic tools.

Our Combined Computer and Mobile Forensics boot camp prepares students for the two industry recognized computer forensic certifications, the IACRB Certified Computer Forensics Examiner (CCFE), IACRB Certified Mobile Forensics Examiner (CMFE). You are prepared for the certification examinations by learning the necessary skills to recognize the overwhelming number of computer threats and investigate computer crime. Participants will learn about the challenges of computer and mobile forensics, walk through the process of analysis and examination of operating systems and mobile devices, and gain deep understanding of differences in evidence locations and examination techniques on Windows and Linux computers, and on Android, iOS, and Windows phones.

Our hands-on labs follow a cohesive scenario simulating a real cyber crime investigation, and allow students to gain practical skills in locating and examining evidence on devices and forensic images, as well as analyzing and reporting findings. Participants will work with various commercial and open-source forensic tools within our unique cloud-based learning platform.
