Securing the Remote Workforce
*Free for (ISC)² Members/Associates by logging in above and clicking "My Courses." Although it’s been a growing trend in business circles over the past decade, the subject of remote work has become an increasingly important topic for businesses since early 2020. The increased availability of portable, inexpensive, and highly capable computing and communications technology combined with nearly ubiquitous internet availability means employees no longer need to be constrained within the confines of a corporate office to get their work done using a company’s systems and data. For many workers, all that is needed is a mobile phone or laptop and access to a local internet access point and they have an office, whether that’s in a company building, at home, in a neighborhood café, or at a tropical resort. 
Forensic Data Acquisition
*Free for (ISC)² Members/Associates by logging in above and clicking "My Courses". Data forensics is used to recover and investigate digital evidence to be used in court for crimes including fraud, espionage, cyberstalking, data theft, or violent crimes. Digital forensics evidence is held to the same standards as physical evidence, which means that it must be authentic, admissible, and reliably obtained. It is critical that security professionals understand the technical, legal, and administrative challenges facing data forensics in order to protect the information gathered prior to it being turned over for analysis to ensure the evidence holds up in a court of law. This Express Learning course explains the digital forensics scientific process, data acquisition methods, and digital evidence handling and preservation principles.
