Learn powerful new GREP techniques in the second of two webinars featuring Suzanne Widup, president of the Digital Forensics Association and author of the recently released book, “Computer Forensics and Digital Investigation with EnCase Forensic v7.”

  • Understand the basics of GREP searching
  • Create effective GREP searches that you can save and use in future cases
  • Narrow the number of hits found in even PDFs and Microsoft Office documents due to the thorough indexing done by the EnCase Version 7 processor
