BlackBag Technologies
Stay up to date with the most current, relevant, and credible training in the industry with BlackBag's comprehensive multi-device investigation training course: Digital Forensic Basics. Whether first learning the fundamentals forensic investigation techniques or interested in seeing BlackBag’s tools in action, this course is an excellent fit for any forensic professional who could benefit from a full scenario-based investigative tutorial, regardless of prior use of BlackBag tools.
Throughout the course, expert trainers who have experience in the field working cases themselves will cover the best investigations techniques and digital forensic methodologies across all four major platforms (Windows, Android, iPhone, and Mac OS X) in case-based, real-world scenarios.

“From our team’s numerous years of firsthand field experience, we developed the Digital Forensic Basics Course with the working examiner in mind. Containing a wide range of practical forensic concepts, this course fully prepares analysts to return to work ready to conduct acquisitions and basic analyses,” explains Director of Training, Matt McFadden.

BlackBag understands the difficulty examiners face when using their valuable time to take training courses, which is why they are proud to offer one of the most comprehensive introductory forensic course in the industry in just two days. 

Coursework covers practical case techniques through the use of BlackLight, a comprehensive forensic analysis tool that is designed to help investigators conduct digital forensic examinations on varying types of evidence (Windows, Android, iOS and Mac OS X). Please note, prior knowledge or use of BlackLight is not required to take this course. 

After a brief introduction to MacQuisition, BlackBag’s imaging tool, students will perform a triage analysis of a full case using their newly acquired digital forensic skills and learn the advanced functions of BlackLight though instructor-led exercises and hands-on practical case studies.

“For a basics course, it teaches a breadth of information,” says McFadden. “I was surprised at how many aspects were covered that pertain to digital forensic case investigations. Analysts will walk out prepared to apply their knowledge and ready for the next step of training.”

After this course, students will know basic digital forensic concepts and comprehensive understanding of how to use BlackLight. They will learn by applying the tool to conduct a cross-platform digital forensic examination and create a customized forensic examiner case report using the built-in reporting capabilities. The course will culminate in an opportunity to take the exam for BlackBag's Certified BlackLight Examiner (CBE) designation, available only through this course.
