4+ Hours of Video Instruction
Digital Archaeology: The Art and Science of Digital Forensics LiveLessons is a comprehensive video guide to the techniques and processes used to perform forensic investigations on information systems. You’ll learn how to thoroughly examine digital media, and how to document, control, prepare, and present examination results that will stand up in a court of law.
Michael W. Graves presents more than four hours of hands-on, step-by-step video training on the fundamentals of performing digital investigations including how to produce forensically sound evidence from hard disks, flash drives, and even live memory. With a focus on forensic procedure and the process of digital investigation, Graves utilizes readily available open source applications and demonstrations where possible, allowing students to learn how to prepare for ediscovery motions and digital investigations without the need to purchase expensive software.
The course assumes a working knowledge of computer hardware and operating systems, but does not assume any knowledge of digital forensics or forensic process.
About the Instructor
Michael W. Graves has worked as an IT professional for more than 15 years as a network specialist, a security analyst, and most recently as a forensic analyst. He holds a Master of Science in Digital Investigation degree from Champlain College, where he spent several semesters as an Adjunct Professor of Computer Science. His publications include a number of certification manuals for several of the CompTIA certifications, as well as two novels. When not poking around in computers or writing books, he carts around an 8x10 view camera and makes black and white landscape photographs with a nod toward the F64 school of photography.
