     My name is Brett Shavers and I manage the DFIR Training Website as a resource for the Digital Forensics/Incident Response field. Mostly, I put it together in a manner that I find useful personally and that I think others will be able to take advantage of to enter the field, advance careers, increase skills, and successfully close cases.

    For being a member of my Patreon page, you gain access to these courses and the upcoming courses.

     This Patreon page is here to supplement the DFIR Training Website in more ways than before. On Patreon, I will have DFIR tool reviews on a regular basis, all picked from the https://www.dfir.training/dfirtools/tools/advanced-search listings, of which, there are over 1,300 tool listings!
    Gain exclusive access to patron-only material, and at the same time, support www.dfir.training with more content available to everyone. I co-wrote the book on X-Ways Forensics and you can access multiple, on-going X-Ways courses. I am also an evangelist of the Windows FE forensic boot system from its inception by Troy Larson and guided WinFE to its current world-wide use. You get access to the original WinFE course by the creator who also helped developed federal, state, and NGO training programs in WinFE.
     Sign up and get access to online courses, including:
  1. X-Ways Forensics Practitioner's Guide course
  2. 101+ Tips and Tricks for X-Ways Forensics
  3. Placing the Suspect Behind the Keyboard
  4. Forensic Operating Systems
  5. Windows Forensic Environment (WinFE)
  6. DFIR Case Studies
  7. Geolocation Forensics
  8. More coming on a regular basis!
Patrons can access the courses through the initial registration email or here:

The courses show "unavailable", but you have access. Unavailable means that no one can register, log in, or access the courses without first being a Patreon supporter.  After confirming your emailed registration, you are good to go!

I'll publish a online course, available to all tiers $20 or higher on Harlan Carvey's latest book, "Investigating Windows Systems", perhaps along with examples from other books, with some ideas on how I look at DFIR books and the exercises in them.

The date this will happen depends on when 300 patrons are reached, so help get us there by spreading the good word!

I expect the course to be 10+ hours, will go through the exercises, curate all images, links, and tools not already curated, and provide a final exam that, if you pass, will give you a printable certificate of completion (not competence! but completion of training hours). So, not only can you learn by reading the book, but you can take a course in it at your own pace and have printable proof of training hours for your resume, CV, employer, or expertise building for court.

This means you get to watch everything in action, re-watch as needed, and I'll give my take on Harlan's suggestions that he makes throughout the book as secondary opinions on how I think through his processes.
