CI091 Introduction to Previewing

This course was funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

This interactive online module provides an overview of the basic concepts behind secure previewing of digital devices. Students become familiar with both on-site and off-site secure previewing, and learn to identify the two states in which a preview can be conducted (live-box and dead-box previewing). At the completion of the course, students will be able to recognize the recommended collection order of volatile data (the "order of volatility").

This course serves as a prerequisite for BDFA-Previewing but can also be completed as a stand-alone course.
