NotepadModern Forensics

Modern Forensics
In this first module, you are introduced to the history of forensics, how it got started and where, how it’s evolved since the 18th century when the practice was first established, as well as a play by play look as the disciplines added to the practice of forensics as a profession.
You’ll learn when Modern Forensics really came into its own, and you’ll learn the basic definition of forensics as well as its purpose in and outside the technology arena.
We’ll explore what evidence is, what its chain of command and integrity is important and the impact of actions and decisions if either is compromised throughout its complete life cycle process, or has appeared to be compromised, and why that is detrimental.
And finally, we’ll introduce you to the basic steps of the forensic life cycle, what happens at each step, how that ties into computer technology. You’ll learn the myriad types of crimes were computer forensics are used, and how security vulnerabilities are identified and picked apart, what computer forensics tells us when discovered, and how that information is used.
