Course Objectives

The CHFI course will give participants the necessary skills to identify an intruder's footprints and to properly gather the necessary evidence to prosecute. Many of today's top tools of the forensic trade will be taught during this course, including software, hardware and specialized techniques. The need for businesses to become more efficient and integrated with one another, as well as the home user, has given way to a new type of criminal, the "cyber-criminal." It is no longer a matter of "will your organization be comprised (hacked)?" but, rather, "when?" Today's battles between corporations, governments, and countries are no longer fought only in the typical arenas of boardrooms or battlefields using physical force. Now the battlefield starts in the technical realm, which ties into most every facet of modern day life. If you or your organization requires the knowledge or skills to identify, track, and prosecute the cyber-criminal, then this is the course for you.

Upon the completion students will learn:

  • The anatomy of how hackers attack
  • Investigating Email
  • Investigating Internet Crimes
  • Investigating Web Attacks
  • Investigating Wireless Attacks
  • Intro to Blackberry, iPod and PDA Forensics
  • Router Forensics
  • Investigating sexual harassment cases
  • Investigating Corporate Espionage
  • Investigating Trademark/Copyright cases
  • Firmly understand the provisions of IT law
  • Learn complex technical concepts
  • Successfully define evidence-handling procedures
  • Functionally design and outline procedures related to incident response strategies
  • Comprehend the general rules of evidence
  • And much, much more

Computer Forensics Course Reviews and Student Testimonials:

Instructor was very knowledgeable about the material and trade. Very good at translating the material for those without a computer background. Took the time to explain any and all questions until understood. Shared relevant personal experiences that emphasized the material.

- Lance Hellman 1

The instructor went above and beyond to answer our questions. I felt I can ask any question and he will have the answer 99.9% of the time.

My instructors passion, real-world experience and extensive knowledge of the subject material made this class one of the best I have ever taken. I look forward to returning for another class in the future.

- Jeffrey D. Johnson
Collier County Sheriff

Excellent instructor. Very knowledgeable of the subject. He willingly answered all questions and provided great guidance in steps to take when approaching a computer investigation.

- Kris Galleron

My instructor and InfoSec are a winning combination...the teacher was able to take all the knowledge from his vast array of experience and turn "geekspeak" into laymen's terms so that even the most novice students will understand the concepts. Whatever he's being paid - it not's enough.

- Gregory A. Loveless

Instructor was to the point, and stayed on topic. Appreciated that he doesn't get led off tangents by students questions.

- Mark Yu
MBL Technologies

Excellent instructor. One of the best I have had in over 27 years in the IT business. Genuinely cared about the students understanding the subject material and their success in passing the exam. She taught how to think and reason to pass the test. That is something not found in any text book.

- Craig Calder

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.

- Student
National Institutes of Health

My instructor is a freaking genius, however he really enjoys bringing the info and material to life so in a way you do catch a bit of genius by the end of the course.

- Samuel Angura
World Bank

A great instructor, very intelligent and well spoken and excellent course materials.

- Jeff Clemmons
Blood Systems

Instructor demonstrated advanced knowledge of the subject matter as well as INFOSEC in general. He provided us with all of the tools and reference materials we needed to perform the DIACAP process. The course materials are great!

- TR Piller

Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!
