|Date:||Nov 6, 2019|
|Instructor:||Justin Matsuhara & Dave Proulx|
INTRODUCTORY FORENSIC TRAINING This course is designed for those looking for an introduction to digital forensics and a perfect entry point for examiners who are new to BlackLight. This includes any of the following:
- Examiners first learning forensics regardless of what tools are used for examination
- Examiners interested in seeing BlackBag’s tools in action in real-world scenarios
- Examiners who are already using BlackBag software and want tips and guidance on how to get the most value from the latest features
- Examiners who are switching from using other forensic suites to BlackLight
- Any forensic professional interested in receiving the most current, relevant, and credible training in the industry
Over a period of two days, this course will offer a hands-on investigative approach toward learning digital forensic concepts and analysis techniques for authenticating, analyzing and reporting digital evidence found on computers and smartphone devices. We understand the difficulty examiners face when using their valuable time to take training courses, which is why BlackBag is proud to offer the most comprehensive introductory forensic course in the industry in just two days. Coursework covers practical case techniques through the use of BlackLight, a comprehensive forensic analysis tool that is designed to help investigators conduct digital forensic examinations across the following platforms (Windows, iPhone, and MacOS). Please note, prior knowledge or use of BlackLight is not required to take this course. After a brief introduction to MacQuisition, BlackBag’s imaging tool, students will perform a triage analysis of a full case using their newly acquired digital forensic skills and learn the advanced functions of BlackLight though instructor-led exercises and hands-on practical case studies.
At the conclusion of this course, students will have a knowledge of basic digital forensic concepts and comprehensive understanding of how to use BlackLight. They will learn by applying the tool to conduct a cross-platform digital forensic examination and create a customized forensic examiner case report using the built-in reporting capabilities. The course will culminate in an opportunity to take the exam for BlackBag's new Certified BlackLight Examiner (CBE) designation, available only through this course.
While there are no prerequisites for this course, students should bring a laptop for use during the hands-on exercises, meeting the following specifications:
- Intel-based system
- 2.8GHz Intel i5 or better
- 16GB RAM or more
- Running OS X 10.11 Yosemite (Mac) or Windows 7 or later (PC)
- Minimum 30G space needed on HD or External Drive
For a limited time, BlackBag is offering the Basic Forensic Investigations course for a special price of $495. Standard pricing after the promotional period will be $795.*
*Note: Due to the value of the course, wait lists are common. Priority will be given to Law Enforcement and existing BlackBag customers.
What Are Confirmed Courses?
In the training industry, especially when it comes to niche training courses, we may need to cancel a scheduled course. This happens most commonly due to lack of registrations.
Courses have various thresholds for becoming confirmed. When a course is scheduled, it is by default tentative. Once the required number of registrations has been reached, the course will become confirmed. A confirmed course is guaranteed to run. A tentative course will most likely run, but may get cancelled, usually four to six weeks before its start date.
An acknowledgement email or invoice is different from a course confirmation. A separate confirmation email will be issued when a course is confirmed, or a cancellation email will be issued when a course is canceled.
