Curriculum Development - Bunting Digital Forensics, LLC
Bunting Digital Forensics, LLC (BDF) has been actively involved in a variety of curriculum development projects. The following list describes those projects and our role therein:
- Macintosh Digital Forensics Course: A one-week certification course that was developed and delivered entirely by Steve Bunting under the auspices of BDF. In addition to the regular course materials, a certification test was developed leading to certification as an Alternative OS Certified Forensic Analyst, a certification created and registered to BDF. Course development, in this case, also included purchasing of a teaching lab and configuration of all machines in the lab.
- Cyber Security Investigations: Incident Response for the FedCTE program. The half-day course was developed for virtual delivery using the AvayaLive virtual classroom and first delivered on June 25, 2014. This course was the first of its kind, which is to say that it was the first time an incident response course was developed and delivery via this relatively new virtual classroom system. BDF was a subcontractor to Forward Defense (UAE company), with the latter being the contractor for the U.S. Dept. of State. Steve Bunting was part of a two-person development team tasked with both full curriculum development and delivery.
- Introduction to Digital Forensics and Investigations: This two-week course (IDFI) was developed for the Anti-Terrorism Assistance Program of the U.S. Department of State. The course was developed during the spring, summer, and fall of 2012. Steve Bunting was part of a two-person developement team initially as an employee of Forward Discovery, Inc (US company) and later as an employee of Alvarez and Marsal (acquired Forward Discovery in Sept 2012). Bunting was part of a two-person delivery team as the lead instructor and under the auspices of BDF, delivering the pilot program to the Philippine National Police in April 2013 in Manilla.
- Windows Server Incident Response Course: This one-week course was developed for the Organization of American States for delivery in Trinidad. As an employee of Forward Discovery, Inc, Steve Bunting developed the entire course. As part of a two-person team, Bunting delivered the pilot program in Trinidad during the week of September 3, 2012.
- Advanced Digital Forensics Consultation (Windows / Linux / Macintosh Server Incident Response): This two-week course (ADFC) was developed for the Anti-Terrorism Assistance Program of the U.S. Department of State. This was a custom course developed during late 2011 and early 2012 for delivery to the Colombian National Police. Steve Bunting, as an employee of Forward Discovery, was the sole developer of the course. In addition to the customary course development materials, this assignment involved writing the specification for, purchasing, assembly of, configuration of, and eventually compromising of, a portable rack of servers (2 Windows servers, 1 Linux server, and 1 OS X server). Further, the ancillary materials for this lab were acquired, assembled, and shipped to Bogota. The course involved a week of instructor and a week of hands-on investigation of the compromised array of servers. Bunting was part of a two-person delivery team who presented this pilot program in Bogota during the two-week period starting March 2, 2012.
- Macintosh Forensics & Advanced Forensics Consultation: This two-week course was developed for the Anti-Terrorism Assistance Program of the U.S. Department of State. The course was developed during the spring of 2011. Steve Bunting, as an employee of Forward Discovery, Inc., was the sole developer of the course. Bunting was part of a two-person delivery team who presented the course in Bogota, Colombia during the two-week period starting June 6, 2011.
