InfoSec Institute is proud to offer the Computer Forensics Boot Camp. Accelerated and taught in five (5) days, this in-depth course teaches students critical techniques and information about identifying, preserving, extracting, analyzing, and reporting computer forensic evidence through use of the most popular computer forensic tools.

Our Computer Forensics Boot Camp prepares students for the two industry recognized computer forensic certifications, the IACRB Certified Computer Forensics Examiner (CCFE). You are prepared for the certification examinations by learning the necessary skills to recognize the overwhelming number of computer threats and investigate computer crime. Participants will learn about the challenges of computer forensics, walk through the process of forensic analysis and examination, and gain deep understanding of differences in evidence locations and examination techniques on Windows and Linux computers.

Our hands-on labs follow a cohesive scenario simulating a real cyber crime investigation, and allow students to gain practical skills in locating and examining evidence on devices and forensic images, as well as analyzing and reporting findings. Participants will work with various commercial and open source forensic tools within our unique cloud-based learning platform.

The CCFE certification is not only offered to individuals involved
