Duration: 3 Days

This hands-on course provides practical demonstrations and real-life simulations to help understand the methodology of using OpenText™ EnCase™ Forensic Version 8 (EnCase) in digital forensic cases involving criminal, corporate, or cybersecurity investigations. In additional to providing instruction on the transitional differences between EnCase Version 6 and Version 8, it also includes instruction on creating a case, using case templates and investigation pathways, the EnCase™ Evidence Processor, indexed searching capabilities, the Direct Network Preview, the new hash analysis module, and options for bookmarking with the ability to use different colors. Although this class is designed for Version 6 users who have previously attended the EnCase Computer Forensics II course (or users who are EnCE qualified), it also serves as a refresher to Version 7 users with the addition of finding out about the new features of EnCase Version 8.

Delivery method: Group-Live. NASBA defined level: basic

CPE Credits - 24
