Surviving Digital Forensics – Windows Shellbags: “The lessons are succinct and informative. I appreciate his approach of showing you what you need to know in order to teach yourself. A lot of videos I’ve seen on advanced topics take time to show you how to browse to a web page, download a tool, and install it.. That drives me insane. If I’m learning the advanced topic then I already know how to use a computer! I enjoyed these tutorials.”
Beau Galbraith
Surviving Digital Forensics – Windows Shellbags: “Awesome course. This course came at the perfect time as I was doing an exam that involved shellbags. The instructor did a great job and was clear and concise. I love the idea of these pre recorded classes that way I can take a break when I need to. Great info and very affordable.. Thanks Sumuri.”

James Cadden
Survivng Digital Forensics – Memory Analysis 2: “Excellent Memory Triage Primer. Great primer/refresher for using Volatility to find suspicious processes in memory dumps. Michael does an excellent job in breaking down the process into “bite-sized” chunks, and methodically explaining the use of some of the primary modules used to find malware in memory. Recommended for newer examiners, or for a quick “refresh” if you haven’t done these exams in a while.”
Shawn K. Dorsey
Survivng Digital Forensics – Memory Analysis 1: “Good Intro Memory Forensics. This class provides a good first step into memory forensics. By itemizing processes found in memory and their characteristics and rules, the class establishes a clear methodology for conducting the initial steps in a memory analysis.”
