Teaching Digital Forensics at the University of Washington

Teaching Digital Forensics at the University of Washington

Several years ago, I taught at the UW Digital Forensics Continuing Education program before taking a break. Now I'm back at it.  A new course with new material, including mobile device forensics.  A change in the program is that the course is offered online as well (not on demand, as the classroom will be broadcast in real-time).

A continual theme in the program is case development.  From the smallest piece of evidence through gathering more evidence, broad analysis to specific targeting focus, to search warrants, and putting an entire case together; that is the goal of the course.

My primary purpose is teaching how to do an actual digital forensic case as I firmly believe that a certification without competence is not useful in the least bit.

A potpourri of software is used throughout the program to show that there are many ways to get to the answer using different tools.  In fact, the tool is not the focus as much as running a case is.  Using software tools gets the information you need to further your case development through case closure.

Consider registrating for the course, it'll be lots of work, but lots of fun to work cases along the way.
