Introduction to Computer Forensics
Presented in a lecture/hands-on format, this course gives students a clear insight into what kind of evidence can be obtained from microcomputers. The continuum of learning goes from "how data is store, and how to find it," to "howa can this evidence be properly presented in court."
Actual hands-on sessions with the computers include exercises using Norton Utilities, Access Data Utilities, EnCase, and demonstrations of other programs.
Many other topics are covered, such as standardization, ergonomics and networks. Computer terminology is explained in the context of the course. More than 60% of the course is hands-on use of microcomputers.
This course is useful for professional and managerial personnel who will be supervising personal computer users and applications, and those in law enforcement, including attorneys.
