Review: Oxygen Forensic Complete Training

Tuesday, August 23, 2016 (10:58:12)
Reviewed by Brad Robin


This review will be based solely on the Oxygen Forensic Complete Training class that occurred in Lafayette, Louisiana between April 19-21, 2016.

Coming into this class my knowledge of the Oxygen Forensic Detective program was very limited. I still remember calling a friend the first time I used the program and asking “Where are the pictures and videos?’ Now don’t get me wrong I have a vast knowledge of the digital forensics community and programs, however you will find that all programs are created different and the GUI interfaces can be quite tricky until you learn each. This is why I am an advocate of being trained on the software you actually use in your day to day investigations.

Tips For Analyzing Data With Magnet AXIOM's Centralized Views

Friday, August 12, 2016 (13:33:17)
In this post we explore several views of the data that Magnet AXIOM offers examiners and investigators, and provide tips and tricks on how to get the most out of AXIOM’s Centralized Views.

Depending on the type of data you’re looking at, the presentation can really help with your analysis. Some views work really well with large datasets, while others work well with smaller datasets. Some work well when all the data being compared is the same, while others can assist with different types of artifacts being shown. The best views for examiners to use vary from case to case and the type of data being analyzed.
