BlackBag Technologies Announces New Windows® Forensic Investigations Course

BlackBag reaffirms its commitment to Windows forensics with a specialized Windows investigative course.

San Jose, CA – July 12, 2019 – BlackBag offers digital forensic training to meet the needs of law enforcement, military and private sector examiners. BlackBag’s courses are designed to address realistic scenarios, simulating the daily challenges of digital evidence. The training content is frequently updated to cover the latest and most relevant topics, and courses are designed for all levels of experience, offering a best-practices approach.

With the introduction of BlackBag’s new Windows Forensic Investigations course, forensic examiners of all levels have the opportunity to experience a comprehensive, in-depth Windows-focused curriculum. Analysts experience guided hands-on analysis reinforced by practical assessments centered on the investigative analysis of Windows-based evidence.

“Our new Windows course instructs examiners to the meaning of vital items of digital evidence found on Windows systems along with their source, structures, methods to parse, techniques to analyze, and what the findings indicate,” says Matt McFadden, Director of Training at BlackBag. “This is all solidified with a case investigation requiring the examiner to apply their skills to determine what actions were carried out by a suspect on digital evidence being analyzed.”

This four-day course allows even experienced students to take their Windows forensic skills to the investigative level; sharpening their analysis abilities of Windows-based evidence. Examiners learn detailed knowledge of Windows-based file systems, operating systems, users, and application artifacts. Artifacts new to Windows 10, providing more evidence to bolster cases, are scrutinized along the way.

“We’re excited to provide a solid curriculum that features analysis techniques of Windows Registry, system data, log files, journals, Windows Users, link and jump files, prefetch, volume shadow copies, compressed archives, volatile data, and much more,” McFadden explains.

Attendees will learn to recover evidence pertaining to user actions, attached devices, files and folders accessed, applications used, and user settings amongst many other things.
