Forensic investigation often requires understanding whether a particular computer system has been used to commit an offence. This workshop provides students with the necessary skills to forensically analyse registry database files within the Microsoft Windows operating system. Students use hands-on exercises to interpret registry key values – whether they are deliberate actions of a computer user or form part of automated computer processes. This workshop is open to full-time computer forensic personnel with basic computer forensic training and work experience in the extraction and interpretation of digital evidence.
