Project Description

Mastering the Implementation and Management of Computer Forensics Processes

This five-day intensive course enables the participants to develop the necessary expertise in mastering the computer forensics processes as specified in CLFE certification. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of fundamental computer forensics, based on the best practices used to implement the forensics evidence recovery and analytical processes. The CLFE certification focuses on core skills required to collect and analyze data from Windows, Mac OS X, Linux computer systems, as well as from mobile devices.
Who should attend?

Computer Forensic specialists
Electronic data analysts
Specialists in computer search and evidence recovery
Professionals working or interested in law enforcement
Professionals willing to advance their knowledge in computer forensic analysis
Members of an information security team
Expert advisors in information technology
Individuals responsible for examining media to extract and disclose data

Learning objectives

To ensure that the CLFE can protect him or herself against injury, threat to credibility and protect the integrity of the examined media throughout the computer forensics operation
To ensure that the CLFE can conduct a complete computer forensics operation and determine the course of action to be followed in order to achieve the goal of the operation
To ensure that the CLFE can safely handle computers, extract and install peripherals and components, relate the presence of certain ports to the actual or eventual presence of a media containing information to be examined
To ensure that the CLFE has a clear knowledge where the information can be found on an electronic media or bit-stream image of a media, it would be operating the systems or user information, actual deleted or hidden information
To ensure that the CLFE can conduct a forensically sound examination, extraction and preservation of evidence located on a network, in the cloud or in a virtual environment
To ensure that the CLFE can conduct a basic, yet forensically sound examination of a cell phone or tablet
To ensure that the CLFE can use efficiently the tools (software, hardware and supplies) of the field examination kit for a better goal achievement of the computer forensics operation
To ensure that the CLFE can justify the way an artifact was acquired or left behind in an ordered, standard and forensically sound manner

Educational approach

This training is based on both theory and practice:

Sessions of lectures illustrated with examples based on real cases

Practical exercises
Review exercises to assist the exam preparation
Practice test similar to the certification exam

To benefit from the practical exercises, the number of training participants is limited
