  1. Greeting Heather,

    First, Great site. I found it earlier this year and will be back often.

    Second, Quick question on the SANS FOR585…will this course also help with the GMOB certification or do you just suggest the SEC575?

    I have my GCFE and also wanted a Mobile Forensic Cert.


  2. I recently read, “Has the smartphone finally outsmarted us?” and I was wondering, if the encryption is enabled on a Windows phone 8.1 via active sync, would you still be able to mount the drive and recover data. It seems the answer is no, but I was wondering if you know the definitive answer. I have been researching this and it is cloudy at best.

      1. Great question. I honestly would have to test it to tell you with confidence what it would do. Cindy may be a good person to ask as well. Or Cheeky who comments often on this site. Let me look into it.

        1. I have spoken to her and she gave me the run down on the tests and how they were done, I think that so far all of our tests have been the same when encryption is pushed via policy, the data is unreadable after reset. Thank you.

  3. Hello!
    I took this class in San Diego last spring and I was granted access to this site. However, I tried several emails to access the site and they do not work. How do I regain access?

    Thank you!

  4. Hello
    I am double checking. I have a 2019 SANS course book FOR585_1_E01_10 What index would I use? I have downloaded FOR585_E01_01_index is this correct? I guess the index area on the web page is confusing me.
