Very "deep" analysis in this course provided by Lynn. This is not easy to comprehend without an IT background. That said, it is a comprehensive content that touches on everything one should know. I know it now. Thank you Lynn, I have expanded my IT acumen. Larry

Another great session from Lynn. It is very very technical and not like other courses - a little boring. It provides some scenarios of computer forensics.
