Bunting Digital Forensics, LLC offers its own Macintosh Digital Forensics course: This is a one-week certification course (extensible to two weeks in some environments) leading to certification as an Alternative OS Certified Forensic Analyst upon completion of the course and successfully passing a written examination that encompasses hands-on skills. The course covers the following modules:
Unlike many other training programs out there, we take a different approach. Some companies like to keep you coming back to them for the next course or refresher training. While that's good from the bottomline perspective, our approach emphasizes teaching the examiner to be a researcher along the way. We do so from the very outset. We use a tool to monitor and examine artifacts as they are created, under the hood. We allow the examiner to see the cause and effect relationships that we call artifacts, as they are created. By the time we reach the module "Digger Deeper", the foundation is already in place and the examiner has the skills needed to research, locate, and understand most any OS X artifact. They can do this for themselves and testify first-hand, rather than depend on third-parties for this information. We create true analysts, not push-button versions by the same name. We take the old adage "Give a person a fish and you feed them one meal; teach that same person how to fish and they can feed themselves for a lifetime". That's our approach to our Macintosh Forensics Training Course and all the other training we do.
