This is a repository to centralize DFIR-related Mind Maps created with any Mind Mapping suites. The main point of this repo is to not only provide the Mind Maps for various DFIR Tools & Artifacts, but provide the source of the Mind Maps so others can use, improve, or modify how they see fit for whatever purpose suits their needs (educational, studying for a certification, etc).
Contributing DFIR Mind Maps
If you contribute to this repo, please provide the source file for others to import into their tool of choice so they can modify, improve, or repurpose your Mind Map as they see fit! With any Pull Request, please provide the following:
- Export of Mind Map in a format that others can ingest into other Mind Map tools (i.e.,
- Export of Mind Map to an image format (.PNG, for instance) for the purpose of the README.md file within the folder your Mind Map will reside in
- Export of Mind Map in PDF as this will preserve any clickable links incorporated into your Mind Map
- Any other deliverables that your Mind Map tool offers that you feel would be useful to the DFIR community, i.e., Markdown export, etc
