Digital forensics involves the investigation of computer-related crimes with the goal of obtaining evidence to be presented in a court of law.
In this course, you will learn the principles and techniques for digital forensics investigation and the spectrum of available computer forensics tools. You will learn about core forensics procedures to ensure court admissibility of evidence, as well as the legal and ethical implications. You will learn how to perform a forensic investigation on both Unix/Linux and Windows systems with different file systems. You will also be guided through forensic procedures and review and analyze forensics reports.
Training a cybersecurity workforce is a national priority for most countries, with a demand for cybersecurity professionals projected to rise to six million job openings globally in the next few years. There are many opportunities for career growth in this field. As people become increasingly dependent on networks to store their personal, financial, and business data, there’s a greater incentive for cybercriminals to steal, manipulate, and monetize that data. The world needs specialists to proactively defend and address these threats. Cybersecurity Essentials is delivered through the Cisco NetAcad.com learning environment.
