Computer Forensics

Our firm has, apparently, decided that the two of us who are now involved in should also be certified in computer forensics, so that we can do that for our clients, and be able to defend our practices in court, without having to go to the expense of hiring a expert from the outside. It’s an interesting idea, in theory. We’ll see how it works out in practice.

The question we have been tasked with right now, though, is finding the most credible and valuable certification to pursue, and to find the best forensic tool we should be working with.

So, since I know some of my readers either have these sorts of certifications, use these tools, or know someone who does, I figured I’d throw open the to your suggestions. Let’s have it!

Luckily for me, the manager of our group will be pursuing the certification first. I’m going to be a little preoccupied pursuing the Certified Trainer and certifications this year, perhaps the will come into play in early 2008. Either way, it’s going to keep me pretty busy.

    I hold the CCE credential. It is a solid exam.

    To get started your best bet is FTK from Access Data.

    You might want to look at SANS. Their GCFA cert is at SANS.
