EnCase Training Passport – Certification and Success Through Affordable Training

Guidance Software’s EnCase products are industry standard for corporations and government agencies that need to conduct digital investigations. Capable of addressing every digital investigation scenario, EnCase products are used for e-discovery, cybersecurity, computer forensic investigations, information assurance and other mission critical functions. Like almost anything, the key to success in each of these areas is understanding how to use your tools. To meet that need, Guidance Software offers the Annual Training passport.Pay one discounted, annual flat rate for unlimited training

The Annual Training Passport offers a single, low cost solution to address your training needs. Priced at a remarkable $5500.00 (USD), the Passport allows an individual to attend an unlimited number of EnCase training courses at Guidance Software training facilities in Pasadena CA (Los Angles), Rosemont IL (Chicago), Dulles VA (Washington DC), Houston TX, Orlando FL or Slough UK (London). In addition, a passport holder can attend EnCase Training OnDemand courses (one time each) for all available online classes.

Our normal single courses are priced at about $2495.00(USD) per seat, making the value of the Training Passport remarkable. For a one year period, the Passport holder can attend the entire course catalog (if pre-requisites are met), which would cost well over $20,000.00 on a class by class basis, for the $5500.00 (USD) purchase price of the Training Passport.

This means you or your team can get and keep their investigative skills current, or can prepare for the expanding scope of digital investigations, at a low price, and with a single, planned purchase. No matter the price of the course, you’re protected against the change for one year from the date of purchase.

Certification available as part of the Passport

The EnCE certification is one of the most recognized and respected digital investigation certifications in the world. In existence for well over 10 years, the EnCE is the stamp of credibility for courtrooms and corporations when digital investigations are part of the landscape. Passport holders can attend the appropriate courses to learn the skills needed to achieve the EnCE certification, as well as the EnCE prep course to best prepare them for the certification process. Purchased separately, the courses add up to nearly $7000.00, making the $5500.00 Passport a bargain even if your only goal is achieving the EnCE. But beyond the EnCE, Guidance offers a broad spectrum of courses for advanced forensics, ediscovery and cybersecurity.

Now, you can renew your Annual Passport at an even lower price, year after year

Passport holders are normally the most successful and skilled users of EnCase software products, and also a group that provides plenty of feedback. One of the question/requests we heard often related allowing existing Passport holders to renew, instead of rebuy, their passports when they expire. To address this request, we’ve added the Passport Renewal program, available only to current Passport holders. As mentioned above, your first year of Passport is a very cost effective $5500.00 purchase. Now, you can add another year of Passport at ANY time before the Passport expiration date, for a simple, sensible $2995.00. This renewal is available on an ongoing basis, meaning you can buy for future years at any point before your Passport expires. This means you can continue to stay on the cutting edge, learn the latest skills, and develop skills in new areas at little more than the cost of a single class. All while controlling and predicting training costs, and reducing administrative overhead by selecting and purchasing individual courses.

Experienced instructors and proven content

60,000 plus. No, that’s not the attendance at tonight’s World Cup match, it’s the number of training students who have attending training since the beginning of Guidance Software. 60,000 is a pretty impressive number, and when one considers the caliber of our instructional staff, the industry standard for training becomes crystal clear, just as it does in the software arena. Guidance Software sets the bar for professional training & development in the digital investigative community. The Annual Training Passport puts this bar within reach of your skills, and through the Passport program, it keeps that valuable training and certification from busting your budget.

Quantifying Data Volatility for IoT Forensics With Examples From Contiki OS

Forensic Focus 22nd June 2022 5:00 am

File timestamps are used by forensics practitioners as a fundamental artifact. For example, the creation of user files can show traces of user activity, while system files, like configuration and log files, typically reveal when a program was run. 

Despite timestamps being ubiquitous, the understanding of their exact meaning is mostly overlooked in favor of fully-automated, correlation-based approaches. Existing work for practitioners aims at understanding Windows and is not directly applicable to Unix-like systems. 

In this paper, we review how each layer of the software stack (kernel, file system, libraries, application) influences MACB timestamps on Unix systems such as Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD and macOS.

We examine how POSIX specifies the timestamp behavior and propose a framework for automatically profiling OS kernels, user mode libraries and applications, including compliance checks against POSIX.

Our implementation covers four different operating systems, the GIO and Qt library, as well as several user mode applications and is released as open-source.

Based on 187 compliance tests and automated profiling covering common file operations, we found multiple unexpected and non-compliant behaviors, both on common operations and in edge cases.

Furthermore, we provide tables summarizing timestamp behavior aimed to be used by practitioners as a quick-reference.
