This course is designed to prepare students to conduct mobile forensic analysis. This course will cover fundamentals of mobile forensics including timestamp analysis, SIM card analysis, and device preservation. The course will then look at Android, iOS, and legacy device analysis.
We at Hexordia will provide a methodology for conducting analysis of unsupported 3rd party apps and conduct comparative analysis. This course uses all open-source tools and publicly available forensic images to teach concepts through the combined use of lecture, demos, hands-on exercises, and labs. Students will also receive access to all HEX-100 and 200 series courses for 1 year when taking this course. By completing this training, students are prepared to take the exam that leads to the Hexordia Mobile Forensic Analyst (HMFA) certification.

“I recently completed the Hexordia HMFA and highly recommend it. Be ready to be challenged and to learn from one of the very best in the field of mobile device forensics.
“I’ve completed the HEXORDIA MOBILE FORENSICS ANALYSIS - VIRTUAL LIVE TRAINING. Thank you @hexordia @cyber5w @B1N2H3X @binaryz0ne for the awesome training. I learned a lot. Here ”
“40+ hours learning the foundations of mobile device forensics analysis. This course was great to learn more depth into the Android and iOS file structures, using opensource tools for a deeper analysis into the data that might/could be missed by proprietary tools, file carving from forensic mobile data, use of SQLite databases to better analyze mobile forensic data, and more ... h/t to Jessica Hyde and Sarah Hayes with the Hexordia outfit for an outstanding class.

“I cannot recommend Hexordia Mobile Forensic training enough. First, the instruction is targeted to the course topic. Second, the instructor is one of the best in the industry. For those of you in law enforcement. We must qualify with our firearms annually (minimum), as well recertify in CPR/AED/FirstAid, and many more. These training areas do not have anywhere near the rapid changes as are seen in mobile forensics. Reviewing material is vital in this industry. The continuing education is ongoing. It is a bonus if you happen to be reviewing a topic which is important to a current case. Invest in yourself. Be the best examiner you can be!”
