Digital Forensics

About the course

Two reasons why digital forensic is on the rise ,one: because we live in digital world and second : digital crime is on the rise

When a breach happens, chaos ensues. However, for proactive organizations, a digital forensics capability can bring order to chaos and contribute to minimizing overall business impact. Digital forensics plays an integral role in any effective response to a security incident and in its aftermath.

There is no such thing as a “secure” system – we do our level best to design them as well as we can, to put controls and measures in place – but, at the end of the day, things can and do go awry. This course talks about Forensics, and how it is the opposite side of the coin from security. What can we do in advance to aid in forensic investigation? What do we do at the point of a compromise to allow us to preserve as much evidence as is possible? And, ultimately, how to we take a forensic analysis and learn from it to create a better system the next time?

Digital forensics investigations can help you:

  • Assess which assets were compromised
  • Determine what unauthorized activities were carried out
  • Establish an appropriate mitigation strategy
  • Assess impact to the organization for a variety of stakeholders
  • Learn from previous incidents to adjust security strategy using your own threat intelligence


This training will be an intensive 40 hours course that will involve the design and implementation of various aspects of  Digital Forensics. This course will teach the learners to carry out the Digital Forensics Investigation of various systems.. This course will involve mini-project and one main course project.
