About this Unit
This unit is composed of a series of investigative workshops that put into practice, in a Computer Forensics context, many of the technical skills developed in earlier pre-requisite units. The unit is intended to not only further develop these skills but to instil best technical practice, sound understanding of technical investigative techniques and documentation of the results of investigation. Workshop topic areas include: clean media copying techniques, search and identification of hidden data, building profiles of computer activities through probing and analysis of log files and how to prepare a system and network to best support subsequent intrusion and activity detection.
