Are BlackBag’s courses Mac-specific?
While BlackBag earned its reputation by emerging as the prominent Mac Forensics experts, our growth over the last few years has allowed us to incorporate Windows forensic analysis functions into our software development and our training curriculum. BlackLight can now parse/analyze Windows file systems and related operating system, user, and application artifacts. Also, Blacklight can examine Android data, and run on Windows systems. Our courses have adapted to reflect these changes. Our customers see data from all types of devices, and we are committed to developing and providing solutions for every challenge that comes their way.
