- Hi, my name in Jungwoo Ryoo, and welcome to Computer Forensics Essential Training. This course provides an introduction to computer forensics by going over all the major aspects of computer forensics. By the end of this course, you will have a good understanding of what computer forensics is all about. We'll start with preparing for computer forensics investigations. In this chapter, we will be using software and hardware write blockers to protect your evidence. In the next chapter, we'll be using hashing tools, such as MD5 sum, to verify the validity of your evidence.
Next, we will learn how to acquire data using a commercial data acquisition software, such as FTK imager. Finally, we will be analyzing the acquired data using open source computer software suite, called Autopsy. Now, let's get started with Computer Forensics Essential Training.
