If you are considering getting into the field of computer forensics (a.k.a. digital forensics) or just want to learn what actually happens when you "delete" data from your computer, then this seminar is for you!

Did you know that Edmonds Community College has a Cleanroom, with the capability to open and repair hard drives? We also have state of the art diagnostic equipment for our students to use - the same equipment used by the big data recovery firms and government crime labs. Our students learn how to perform data recovery on damaged and malfunctioning hard drives as part of CIS 294 - Advanced Data Recovery. We are the only college in the state with several Certified Data Recovery Experts that instruct this curriculum.

This introductory seminar on digital forensics is being offered through 2015 at no cost - EdCC is the only college in the state offering this seminar. All are invited to participate, and you do not need to be a current student of EdCC. This seminar is popular and seats will go fast - we regularly have students who have traveled from out of state in attendance. Meet your Instructors for this seminar.

Note! This seminar is not one long sales pitch for taking classes at EdCC. You'll be getting a seat in a seminar that used to retail for $295.00 and is now being offered through EdCC at no cost to you.

This seminar is designed for anyone interested in learning more about digital forensics. One does not need to be working in an information technology related field to attend. The focus for this one-of-a-kind course will be the various aspects of digital forensics what working as a digital forensic examiner entails.

You'll be taken through an actual digital forensics case as seen through the eyes of an expert, and you will become conversant in digital forensics terminology as well as gaining an understanding of what digital forensics experts actually do. As many digital forensics cases now involve Internet technologies, we will also be discussing some items that are normally overlooked as well as misinterpreted by many experts.

Topics Will Include:

  • Data storage, hard drives and media
  • Sources of data and evidence
  • Forensics in a networked environment
  • Computer forensics procedures - methods to start an analysis and investigation
  • Computer forensics experts - becoming one
  • Locating and extracting evidence from the Windows Registry
  • Locating and extracting evidence related to Internet activity
  • Locating and extracting evidence related to email activity
  • Employment outlook
  • Preparing to testify
