Advice for someone new to Digital Forensics

Post Posted: Nov 10, 14 06:57

Hi all,

This is my first post in this forum. I've read through as many of the other posts as I could, but didn't quite see the answer I was looking for, since so many of the users here are coming from a number of different experiences and backgrounds.

I am 25 and just started in my first I.T. job in March working as an IT Specialist & Site Admin. There are only four of us supporting a large office, so we each have to wear a variety of different hats. As a result, my boss recently enrolled me in a training package in order for me to learn how to use EnCase Enterprise v7. I am still just learning the ropes with this tool, but have so far found it to be really interesting - so much so that I am strongly considering working towards my EnCE certification (I even purchased the study guide by Steve Bunting).

I've read a number of different blogs, articles, and job listings trying to get a feel for what a career in Digital Forensics was all about. I was hoping someone here who works in the industry might be able to give me a "day in the life of." Also, if anyone has any tips or suggestions for getting started in this field it would be sincerely appreciated.

I truly appreciate your time reading this and any feedback you could offer. Thank you very much!
