Certified Virtualization Forensics Examiner
This course takes two enormously challenging areas facing IT security professionals today: incidence response and virtualization and attempts to meld these together. Forensics is at the heart of incidence response, and therefore this training will focus on how to gather evidence relating to an incident – the what, when, where, who and why of an incident – within today’s common virtual environments. Additionally, the course will take a deep dive into the virtual infrastructure, and contrast the various virtual entities against their physical counterparts. This will allow a clear demonstration of the forensically-relevant differences between the virtual and physical environments. The course uses a lab-centric, scenario-based approach to demonstrate how to forensically examine relevant components of a virtual infrastructure for specific use cases.
The Certified Virtualization Forensics Examiner exam is taken online through Mile2’s Assessment and Certification System (“MACS”), which is accessible on your mile2.com account. The exam will take 2 hours and consist of 100 multiple choice questions. The cost is $400 USD and must be purchased from Mile2.com.
