|Certified Digital Forensics Examiner Course Description|
Course Name: C)DFE
Duration: 5 days
Format: Instructor-led (Lecture and Lab)
Experience in using a computer
The Certified Digital Forensics Examiner program is designed to train Cyber Crime and Fraud Investigators in electronic discovery and advanced investigation techniques. This course is essential to anyone encountering digital evidence while conducting an investigation.
Benefits Of This Course:
The C)DFE course will benefit organizations, individuals, government offices, and law enforcement agencies interested in pursuing litigation, proof of guilt, or corrective action based on digital evidence. An example of “corrective action” would be the termination of an employee for a violation of computer usage where digital evidence was needed to support the allegation. The investigator must furnish an irrefutable burden of proof based on that digital evidence. If not irrefutable, an attorney knowledgeable about Computer Forensics could have the case thrown out of court. Government or investigative agencies need proper training to succeed in cases like the above as well as those including acts of fraud, computer misuse, illegal pornography, counterfeiting, and so forth. Mile2’s Certified Digital Forensics Examiner training teaches the methodology for conducting a computer forensic examination. Students will learn to use forensically sound investigative techniques in order to evaluate the scene, collect and document all relevant information, interview appropriate personnel, maintain chain-of-custody, and write a findings report.
WHAT DO STUDENTS LEARN?
The C)DFE training covers a wide range of topics including:
WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR
Anyone who is or may be to be involved in examining electronic devices for digital artifacts (i.e. evidence) needed for company, legal, or law enforcement investigations.
OBJECTIVES COVERED IN LABORATORY SCENARIOS
Recovering electronically stored data for civil litigation.
Recovering, categorizing and analyzing data.
Discovering hidden potential evidence.
Investigating misappropriations of proprietary information.
Bit-by-bit imaging digital media and preserving the integrity of the image.
Identifying and reconstructing information within various file systems.
Conducting an investigation into a complaint of sexual harassment.
Understanding anti-forensics and steganography
Computer Forensics as a field was born and developed by U.S. federal law enforcement agents during the mid to late 1980s. New techniques were needed to meet the challenges of white-collar crimes being committed with the assistance of a PC. By 1985 enforcement agents were being trained in the automated environment and by 1989 software and protocols were beginning to emerge in the discipline. mile2’s originally had two forensics related courses: CFED (Computer Forensics and Electronic Discovery) and AFCT (Advanced Forensics Computer Techniques). These courses and related materials were created by practitioners in the forensics field. In 2008 CFED and AFCT were combined into the C)DFE course. Course content and materials are updated periodically to keep up with technology and concepts in the digital forensics field.
Certified Digital Forensics Examiner graduates obtain real world computer forensic knowledge that will help them recognize, seize, preserve and present digital evidence. Mile2’s computer forensic graduates gain the skills and knowledge to perform forensically sound computer examinations and to clearly and accurately report on their findings. Students will also be able to confidently attempt mile2’s Certified Digital Forensics Examiner certification exam.
