DF320 Advanced Digital Forensic Analysis: macOS (March 29–April 1, 2021, Virtual)

This course teaches students to identify and collect volatile data, acquire forensically sound images of Apple Macintosh computers, and perform forensic analysis of macOS operating system and application artifacts. Students gain hands-on experience scripting and using automated tools to conduct a simulated live triage, and use multiple methods to acquire forensically sound images of Apple Macintosh computers. Topics include how the macOS default file system stores data, what happens when files are sent to the macOS Trash, where operating system and application artifacts are stored, and how they can be analyzed. Forensic artifacts covered include password recovery, recently opened files and applications, encryption handling, Mail, Safari, Messages, FaceTime, Photos, Chrome, and Firefox.

Webinar - The Critical Role of a Money Laundering Professional

Money laundering is an integral part of many, if not most, of crime and terror finance. From local crime to tax avoidance to transnational networks, the source of money will be masked to conceal the source and at the same time serve to make the money usable in the legitimate worlds of business and finance. This requires the professionals involved to exercise expertise, business acumen, and power influence. This course will describe the types of money laundering professionals and how they serve to bridge the hidden and illicit sources of money with the real world, often remaining invisible themselves. We will use case studies to demonstrate the levels at which they operate (local, national/transnational, political) and the challenges they face in accomplishing their criminal goals.

Webinar - Shot in the Dark: A Cold Case Homicide in the Digital Age

Just a mile away from the Pottawattamie County Sheriff's Office in Council Bluffs, Iowa, a woman is shot during a nighttime stroll in a public park. It's the latest in a bizarre series of events, three years into a five-year missing persons investigation. Closing the case will take years of work, dozens of search warrants, and two weeks of testimony. This presentation will provide a case study of the investigation and prosecution of a no-body homicide. Getting to the verdict took thousands of hours of digital forensics to help prove premeditation and tie the killer, who hid themselves using VPNs and proxies, to years of online impersonations of their victim.

DF205 Intermediate Digital Forensic Analysis: SQLite Primer (Feb. 25, 2021, Virtual)

Mobile devices dominate the intake list and the desks of most digital forensics analysts globally. Devices are becoming more secure, with an increase in security; the need for detailed analysis is increasing as well. SQLite is a self-contained, serverless database engine. It is found on nearly every operating system and dominates iOS, Android, and macOS as one of the most prevalent and relevant data storage mechanisms. Rather than hope our forensic tools support the newest applications or be tethered to how a certain utility parses data, we can arm ourselves with the skills and techniques needed to conquer the analysis of nearly any application.
