Due to the rise of new technology advances, cyber activities are unfolding in unexpected forms. There are lots of professions such as law enforcement and IT specialists evolving in function of multiple conflicts, threats and complexities of cyber anomalies and uses of digital information in misleading ways. Therefore, the use and development of digital forensic tools is been growing rapidly in the last few years and we expect them to continue rising. Software such as FTK Imager and Autopsy are useful tools of this kind. As part of the Advanced Forensics course offered at the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico, students get a practical and research approach by using several digital issues. This article discusses the laboratory component of this course and the creation of a laboratory manual for guided exercises using FTK Imager and Autopsy tools.
