Reno, NV, January 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The National Forensic Data Recovery Training Center, has opened to provide technical training in the area of forensic data recovery. The initial training course being provided by the Center was originally developed under a grant awarded through the United States Department of Justice’s, National Institute of Justice (NIJ). The 2010 Spring solicitation titled “Electronic Crime and Digital Evidence Recovery” sought assistance in the development of tools and techniques to investigate “Damaged Hard Drive Recovery and Forensic Examination Tools.” Great Basin Data Recovery and its partner, California Data Recovery, spent over a year reviewing methodologies and building standards for law enforcement’s investigation of damaged hard drives. The process culminated in the development of a 5 day training course titled “Forensic Data Recovery for Digital Forensic Examiners.”
Great Basin Data Recovery, specialists in data recovery and digital forensics, were selected for the award after submitting an application and competing nationally against other submissions. “We are very excited about the opportunity we have had to develop these new processes for law enforcement and now to be able to offer them through the National Forensic Data Recovery Training Center,” said Linda Shipley, Great Basin Data Recovery owner. The goals of the center are to leverage the research conducted on the tools and technology currently available and to develop new additional training courses unique and currently unavailable in the field. The course offerings will be directed towards non-law enforcement digital examiners as well as the general Information Technology field. The Center will be providing training on additional topics relevant to data recovery and digital forensics.
Brian Door, CEO of California Data Recovery, said, “Law enforcement has significant challenges with technology investigations regarding digital evidence. The National Forensic Data Recovery Training Center was developed to help provide some solutions.”
Great Basin Data Recovery (GBDR) was established as a Nevada Corporation in 2007 to provide data recovery services to Northern Nevada. It has since expanded its services to clients nationally. GBDR is a woman/veteran owned company. Their offices are located in Reno, Nevada at 1325 Airmotive way, Suite 207.
