This course provides an introduction to digital forensics, including methodology, reporting and legal considerations. Major part of the course is hands-on investigations of Windows machines using free/open source tools.

The course is targeted to technical IT staff who are used to working with IT in roles like administrator, auditor, manager, etc.  and whose normal duties do not include forensic analysis. Experienced digital forensic staff doing forensics on regular basis is not the target group and will receive only limited benefit from attending.

NB! This course will provide an overview and is not meant to provide an in-depth introduction of forensic methods or tools. One of the aims of this course is to help to prepare students for the more challenging reverse engineering training offered by the Centre, the Botnet Mitigation Training.

  • Good work/administration experience in the Linux and Windows environments, especially command line. 
  • Comfortable with using virtual machines for training environment (Virtual Box or similar). 
  • English language skill comparable to STANAG 6001, 

NB! Please be aware of the strong technical nature of this course, it is not intended for inexperienced IT security specialists.
