CEIC 2015: New EnCase Basics Track Shortens Your Learning Curve

Digital Forensics | Mar 31, 2015

Let's talk a little bit about basic training. Nothing is more critical to the success of your EnCase® implementation than the buy-in and performance of the people who use it. After all, if your IT, security, or litigation support specialists fail to successfully learn the software, you can't truly maximize your organization's investment.

If you're one of our newer customers, our new EnCase Basics track at CEIC 2015 makes perfect sense. With four days of focused training and over 1,400 professional peers and experts, CEIC can help you or other new EnCase users in your organization gear up to address new challenges head-on.

Digital and Security Investigations are Converging

More and more digital investigators are being incident response and cyber forensics specialists, too. At Guidance Software, we don't just sell you security, legal, and forensics products--we invest in your ability to prevent, detect, and respond to the ever-changing threat landscape.

According to SANS 2014 Survey of Endpoint Intelligence, 60 percent of organizations plan to automate incident response within 24 months. To help you do that, we've dedicated 50 percent of the EnCase Basics track to helping you unleash the power of your EnCase® Cybersecurity and EnCase® Analytics products.

Register today and request these six powerful labs to accelerate your incident response and threat-hunting capabilities with EnCase:

  • Getting Started with EnCase Cybersecurity (Parts 1 and 2)
  • Getting Started with EnCase Analytics (Parts 1 and 2)
  • Incident Response with EnCase Cybersecurity and EnCase Analytics (Parts 1 and 2)


We're pleased to announce that our popular, EnCE-certified instructor Ashley Hernandez will lead these highly rated labs again this year. As a sought-after security speaker, she's been featured at numerous industry conferences, including HTCIA and ICAC, and she enthusiastically interacts with a large Twitter following at @AshleyatEnCase.

Faster Time-to-value for New EnCase Users

We know your time is valuable and respect the way you invest it, so we guarantee that these EnCase Basics ssessions will shorten your learning curve. In addition to the security sessions mentioned above, the new track also offers courses on maximizing your use of EnCase® Enterprise and EnCase® eDiscovery that will be taught by Daniel Smyth, a field-tested expert in forensics, e-discovery, and cybersecurity as well as a training course developer, instructor, on-site services practitioner, and consultant.

Not only are Guidance Software trainers like Ashley and Daniel targeting their course material for you to put to use immediately, but we're also offering a new "Ask the Trainers" booth at CEIC 2015 to boost your training and give you access to even more expert knowledge. We'll staff the information center during all hours of the conference, so stop by any time to ask an instructor your burning questions.

"Open" EnCE® and EnCEP® Testing at CEIC

We've made it easier than ever this year to complete your EnCE and EnCEP exams and quickly drop your Padawan apprentice cloak for that of a Jedi master.

"Open Testing" is a new benefit of this year's CEIC, and it means "no appointment necessary." Exams will be offered on Monday, May 18 through Wednesday, MAy 20 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day. The only caveat is that you must be pre-approved for the testing by April 24. Click here for detailed instructions on gearing up to take your EnCE and EnCEP exams.

And finally, don't forget to sign up for and attend the EnCE Prep session in the EnCase Basic track prior to testing. No doubt you'll learn a great deal from veteran Guidance Software instructor and retired U.S. Army special agent Jamey Tubbs in this brief, high-level review. You can also connect with Jamey on Twitter.

Visit the CEIC website for information on the current event agenda, registration and travel information, sponsor and exhibitor opportunities, and to register today. We hope you'll also interact with us on FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn for the latest news and conversation.
