KAPE Intensive Training and Certification

The Cyber Risk practice of Kroll is excited to offer virtual sessions of the Kroll Artifact Parser and Extractor (KAPE) Intensive Training and Certification.

The program will accelerate the learning curve of digital forensic and incident response (DFIR) professionals that need to do triage, collection and processing at lightning speed. Kroll instructors will demonstrate how to utilize KAPE and other powerful tools developed by Eric Zimmerman to collect and process relevant forensic artifacts within minutes, and participants will have the opportunity to take the KAPE proficiency exam to become certified.

Over 93% of participants in previous KAPE Intensive Training and Certification virtual sessions rated the instructors’ clarity and pace, as well as the practice labs “very” or “extremely” helpful. We’ve now expanded the program so it’s more convenient for DFIR professionals worldwide to become trained and certified in KAPE.

Virtual sessions are limited to a maximum of 25 students to guarantee individual attention to every participant. Register early to secure your spot.
