REVIEW: Magnet Forensics - AX100 (OSP): Magnet AXIOM Forensic Fundamentals

 



"I'm sorry I ruined your lives and crammed 11 cookies in the VCR..." - Buddy the Elf

DISCLAIMER: THIS REVIEW IS OVER AX100 ONLINE SELF-PACED (OSP).  THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS AX100 INSTRUCTOR LED.  PLEASE TAKE THAT INTO CONSIDERATION WHEN YOU MAKE YOUR CHOICE IN SELECTING WHICH COURSE IS BEST FOR YOU.

This course made me feel a lot like Buddy the Elf.  I thought I knew how things worked, but I learned how they truly work in a more technical aspect.  This course prepared me for how Magnet AXIOM looks into the data provided from computer/mobile systems and how much easier it is using a program to parse all of this information for us.

Understanding all of this not only gives you an appreciation for what Magnet AXIOM can do, but it also helps give you an understanding as an examiner of what you are looking for.  Here is an outline of the modules from the AX100 Online Self-Paced  (OSP) course:

AX100 (OSP) Course Modules
Module 1 - Course Introduction
Module 2 - Preservation and Collection of Digital Evidence
Module 3 - Drive Geometry
Module 4 - Data Storage Concepts (Bits, Bytes, and Hex)
Module 5 - Partitioning, Formatting, and File Systems
Module 6 - Boot Process and Drive Letter Assignments
Module 7 - Principles of Data Storage
Module 8 - Windows Registry
Module 9 -  Imaging Computer Media and Mobile Devices
Module 10 - Mobile Devices

My only gripe about the OSP course, is that there isn't a way to validate what you have learned.  The practical exercises are great, but without a system that allows you to test your knowledge, the OSP course is for those who want a refresher or just need to check AX100 off your list..

CPE: Not Offered for OSP Courses
Total Cost: $2,999.00 excl. Tax or FREE with Magnet TAP (Training Access Pass)


Bye Bye Bye!
