Oxygen Forensics Software Used to Teach Students Enrolled in Capitol Technology University Cybersecurity Degree Programs

Alexandria, VA – March 21, 2017 - Oxygen Forensics, a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices and cloud services, announced today that its flagship product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective, is being used by professors teaching digital forensic classes within the BS and MS cybersecurity degree programs at Capitol Technology University in Laurel, Maryland.

“Capitol Technology University’s use of our flagship product in its digital forensic classes is wonderful validation of the robustness of our product and the real-world experience that forensics students achieve by using Oxygen in the classroom,” said Lee Reiber, Oxygen Forensics COO. “We are very proud that Capitol included us in the digital forensic courses as they train the next generation of investigators focused on the new digital landscape.”

An excerpt from Mobile Forensic Investigations: A Guide to Evidence Collection, Analysis, and Presentation, the textbook used by Captiol Technology University for its mobile forensic curriculum, states:

“The proliferation of mobile devices will only increase with the world’s population growth and as this population’s dependency on technology accelerates. Now should be the time to accept and understand that the information contained on a mobile device details, documents, and exposes the thoughts, actions, and deeds of a user substantially more than any data stored on a personal computer. With this unprecedented amount of electronic evidence comes the need for highly skilled mobile device forensics investigators.

“With the help of Oxygen Forensics Academic Training program, our university was able to utilize Oxygen Forensic® Detective as the foundational software for our recently developed graduate-level mobile device forensics course. Our students raved about the outstanding capabilities to easily extract and analyze artifacts across Android and iOS devices,” said Chris Gastardi, course developer for the mobile forensic curriculum at Capital Technology University.

“Furthermore, Oxygen Forensic® Detective has given my students the opportunity to understand the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ in their analysis of smartphone devices. As we set out to expand our digital forensics and specifically mobile device forensics program at the university, Oxygen has proven to be instrumental in this endeavor by providing our students with innovative mobile forensic software used in real world mobile forensic investigations. At the end of the first run of our mobile device forensics course, all of my students said their favorite part of the course was using Oxygen Forensic® Detective to complete their lab assignments. The Oxygen Forensics Academic Training Program provides everything necessary to equip our students to become mobile forensics professionals.”
