CHFI v9 EC-Council Official Training

On this 5-day accelerated course, you'll learn to perform an effective digital forensics investigation. You'll also get the knowledge you need to identify an intruder's footprints and gather the necessary evidence to prosecute.

There's always an opportunity for a hacker to penetrate your system. When your organisation is hit by a cyber breach, the real issue is how you respond to the attack. The EC-Council C|HFI v9 certification course will teach you the entire digital forensics process. You'll get hands-on experience with various forensic investigation tools and techniques.

You’ll learn crucial computer forensics skills like:

  • Searching and seizing
  • Chain-of-custody
  • Acquisition
  • Preservation
  • Analysis and reporting of digital evidence

This version of the CHFI (v9) addresses the latest forensics examination techniques, including Linux and MAC forensics. Additionally, this updated version dives in to the laws and standards surrounding digital forensics.

Firebrand's unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique combines both theoretical knowledge and key practical skills. You’ll be immersed in digital forensics as you participate in new CHFI v9 labs, centred around malware, database, cloud and anti-forensics techniques.

On this course, you'll be prepared for and sit the CHFI (312-49) exam. This is covered by your Certification Guarantee.

The Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator certification (CHFI) is aimed at top-level forensic and intrusion analysts, security operations personnel and systems/network administrators.
