Course description

Rapidly-evolving technologies inevitably transform through crime. Now six modules take a closer look at the challenges of new and emerging technologies in a forensic context: virtualization, social networks and gaming. Beginning with virtualization, this course takes you through what you can expect to face when trying to forensically examine cloud data or a virtual machine, the dangers of malware applications adapting to virtual machine environments, big data (“Those that control the algorithm, control the information”), gathering evidence from social media, crime and criminals on interactive games like Second Life and more. Includes tools, examples and terminology.
