The integration of technology-driven solutions in business operations has increased the risk exposure of IT systems of businesses and individuals to network breaches. In most criminal cases, a lot of evidence is dependent on the digital evidence gotten from network forensics, thus investigative businesses must provide evidence that can be admissible in court. The need for professionals to handle incidents of cyber-breaches and network investigations in a timely manner using the right investigation and forensic procedures has become imperative in view of the changing and complex cybercrime landscape. Investigations and analysis conducted by e-Crime Bureau have identified the challenges IT professionals face in responding to and managing incidents within IT environments, especially with complex enterprise systems, integration of third-party applications, cloud computing, and mobile devices, leading to an increase in the exposure of IT environments to digital crimes. This lab-based training will provide practical case study scenarios, best practices, tools, and standard network forensic techniques used to gather digital evidence to build forensic-ready IT environments.
The main objectives of the course are to:
- To equip participants to gain working knowledge to identify and collect additional evidence based on the existing systems and platforms within a network architecture.
- To enhance participants’ ability to use data from typical network protocols to increase the fidelity of the investigation’s findings.
- To equip participants with skills to analyse network packets and easily identify compromised systems on the network.
- To build the capacity of participants to be able to analyse and examine wireless network traffic using common network protocols to find evidence of malicious activities.
- To equip participants with the necessary skills to prevent incidents from further escalating using information gathered.
IT Managers, SOCs Analyst, Network Administrators, Forensics Investigators /Auditors, Risk Managers/Analyst, Security Managers, Criminal Prosecutors, Police Investigators, and other individuals interested in gathering digital evidence through forensic investigations.
