This course focuses on the practice of digital forensics across multiple platforms and technologies. It emphasizes the role of forensics in countering advanced persistent threats (APTs), which are sophisticated, coordinated attacks that employ a variety of techniques to attempt to compromise a system. Students investigate case studies describing various kinds of attacks against an organization. In working through these case studies, students learn how to perform forensic analyses of network traffic, mobile device file systems, memory, and malware. Students learn how the engines of forensics tools work so that they can perform their analyses even as the use of anti-forensics techniques continues to grow.
