Autopsy For Educators

Autopsy

Basis Technology

Autopsy is used in a variety of college and high school digital forensics courses because it has the core features that students need to learn, and the open source license makes it easy to share with students.

Every year at OSDFCon, we get educators that ask Basis Technology to meet other educators who are using Autopsy because they want to collaborate. This new event is that opportunity. The talk will cover some of the basic concepts for using Autopsy in the classroom and then let the attendees discuss what challenges they have faced and how they can help each other. The end goal will be new partnerships and a list of things that members of the community can start to work on.
