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 students performed data recovery for families involved in the Oso Landslide, and they often assist law enforcement agencies in the recovery of data from damaged or malfunctioning hard drives? EdCC has a Cleanroom, with the capability to open and repair hard drives, as well as state of the art diagnostic equipment for students to use - the same equipment used by the big data recovery firms and government crime labs. EdCC is 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 2016 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 and 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.
