DEF53115 Diploma In Electronic Forensics

DEF53115 – Diploma of Electronic Forensics has been developed by the Australian Department of Defence to exploit electronic evidence gathered from an operational environment. Specifically designed for exploiting electronic evidence in a digital forensics lab, this is tailored for students interested in a career in law enforcement, military policing, intelligence, or other regulatory careers. From learning how to secure evidence while leading a team of digital forensics experts, then forensically acquiring, and analysing what you capture and then  present it in court, this is the most comprehensive electronic forensics leadership course in the world. In addition, because the course focuses on the electronic forensics continuum, undertaking this course will provide the student with the ability to specialise in one of several key electronic forensic areas as well as digital forensics.
