BlackLight Tool Training (BTT)


BlackLight Tool Training is primarily geared toward two groups: current BlackLight users who want to learn more about its capabilities and prospective customers who want to take it for a test run. Nonetheless, the quantity and quality of general forensic knowledge provided in BlackLight Tool Training will make it an excellent fit for any forensic professional who could benefit from a full scenario-based investigative tutorial, regardless of his or her relationship to BlackLight.

Course Description

Over a period of two days, the BlackLight Tool Training course will offer a hands-on investigative approach toward learning techniques for authenticating, analyzing and reporting digital evidence found on computers and smartphone devices. Coursework covers the use of BlackLight, a comprehensive forensic analysis tool that is designed to help investigators conduct digital forensic examinations on all four major platforms (Windows, Android, iPhone and Mac OS X). After a brief introduction to MacQuisition, BlackBag’s imaging tool, students will triage a full case and learn the advanced functions of BlackLight though instructor-led exercises and hands-on practical case studies.
