Alliance Introduction to Digital Forensics Certificate

November 28, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

With the evolution of technology and the significant increases in computer-based crimes, the field of computer forensics is one of the fastest growing fields in computer security. As crimes become more technologically sophisticated, the need for computer forensic experts will continue to grow throughout law enforcement and business communities. In this hands-on Alliance introductory certificate program, participants will learn how forensic experts gather evidence of computer crimes. In addition, they will learn to recognize how TV shows and newspapers, for the most part, misrepresent the forensics professions in some major ways. The class will incorporate many hands-on exercises requiring a Windows 7 or above computer. These exercises are built from Michael K. Robinson’s Digital Forensics Workbook.
