About this course

About CMFF:

The 2-day CMFF curriculum provides attendees with compulsory digital forensics core knowledge (fundamentals) including: mobile device communication networks, explorations of Android and iOS file systems, extraction methodologies, memory (NAND) functions, and the proper handling of digital evidence for use in administrative, civil, or criminal actions. Moreover, attendees will learn the reasoning and strategies (concepts) used by creditable practitioners and organizations to form the future of digital forensic best practices. Although Cellebrite products are used in CMFF, the course is not a single tool or application centric program. Cellebrite believes a responsibility exists to teach members of the digital forensic community the necessary competencies to conduct exams ethically, using universal professional standards. About CCO:

The Cellebrite Certified Operator (CCO) course is a 2-day intermediate level certification program which builds on the concepts from the CMFF course. This course is designed for those participants tasked with extracting data in a forensically sound manner using UFED Touch or UFED 4PC. This course aims to teach data extraction team members such as technically savvy investigators, digital forensic examiners, IT staff, internal affairs investigators, first responders and personnel designated to handle extraction of digital evidence how to perform extractions on a variety of devices. These extractions include logical, file system and physical extractions from mobile devices as well SIM cards, and external storage such as SD cards. Participants in this course will gain a basic understanding of how to open the extractions in Physical Analyzer software, conduct basic searches and how to create bookmarks and reports. NOTE: It is strongly recommended that students attending this course complete the Cellebrite Mobile Forensics Fundamentals (CMFF) course or test out prior to attending.
