Thanks to both of you for the good advice. After all the reading I have been doing I can see that Jamie is quite the source for information. I enjoyed many of your articles.

Andy, I had a question for you regarding Police work. The majority of the investigations in my area seem (as I have read) to be handled by our Bureau of Criminal Investigations. Is that the trend for most states or is it common for the local police department's to handle a forensic computer investigation.

I have decided to get my CCE this next year, and work from there. I am quite skilled as a programmer, but it is just not a subject of interest for me anymore. I am thinking I will travel this path and get certified with the CCE, EnCE, and GIAC Certified Forensic Analyst (GCFA). Then I will focus on finding a position within an organization, maybe a CSIRT job that has an entry level position open. The private sector seems to be the way in. I will also see, after I accomplish that, if there is a way to do some volunteer work for the local PD's or maybe the BCI will have something available by then. Until then I will play behind the scenes and absorb as much knowledge as I can from the net, books, and training. I know it's not as good as real world experience, but sometimes you have to just dig in to get in.

Best to you both,

Brandon

Not all who work in those police deparments are police officers, some are civilain support staff. So if I were you and wanted to get a start in computer forensic criminal investigation, i'd try making enquiries with your nearest law enforcement agency. They just might be looking for staff, and someone with a programming background might be what they are looking for.

If you are going to stay in or enter the Computer Forensics field, expect to spend a few thousand dollars, and get as much training, hardware, and software you can afford. Master one of the leading forensics softwae programs, at least.

Check with your local police or sheriff's office and find out if they have a computer forensics unit. If not, you might find your skills could be needed there.

Hi Andy

Need some advice from you. we want to provide training on forensic software Encase to our 4-5 persons for 2-3 weeks. Can you recommend someone who can take up this activity for us in New Delhi, India. Alternatively, our trainer with some background on forensics can be trained in UK/Europe/US which will enable him to further conduct the in-house course for our team

Hi Krishan,

Sorry I have take so long to reply, but I have been tied up with work commitments and not had chance to read the board.

I see Greg Marshall has pm'd you already.

I can tell you that Guidance Software have a number of courses available at their Liverpool training school - for your in house trainer (should he come over to the UK) to enrole on.

The courses at Liverpool are excellent and the facilities good too.

However; if you still require someone to come over to New Delhi and teach you how to use Encase on a one to one basis, although I am no longer an 'official' Guidance part time trainer - I would still be happy to help Very Happy

Regards

Andy
