CCE Certification

Post Posted: Oct 11, 04 19:50

Can someone tell me about this cert? How favorably it's looked upon, etc. I am wanting to get into the field and not sure what route to go? CCE, GCFA, other certs. I have no law enforcement background and I cant enter into LE either.

I'm hoping it's looked upon favorably. I obtained the CCE in June. Check out the new website, which is www.isfce.com.

I attended a week long class put on by Intense Schools. You can get more information at www.intenseschool.com. The classroom training is pretty thorough. Certification is based on both a written exam, and the successful completion of 3 case studies, using skills learned in the class. When I took the course, a cumulative score of 80% or better was required for passing.

There are only about a 100 or so CCE's in the country as of this message but more will follow. Has it helped me yet? No, but I haven't begun to advertise the certification yet. I beliieve, like most certificiations, it will be beneficial down the road.[/url]

Looks good! What was the cost for you and what Forensic software did you receive? FTK? Encase?

The cost of the class was about $4,000 U.S., which included the course materisals, accomodations and all meals. They give you a limited version of FTK which will allow you to complete the course and the casework for the certification. They also give you a registered copy of Quickview Plus and Winhex, along with some demo versions of Datalifter and Isobuster.

That may have changed since June when I took the course.

I decided on Intense, frankly, because they were the only school that actually contacted me after I requested information. There were 3 other schools, whose names I don't recall right now, that I never heard from.

I've got the SANS/GIAC certifications GCFA (Forensics) and GCIA (Intrusion Detection). One week of intense training for each course, a practical assignment broken into 3 areas and 2 exams. Tough, but worth it.

The GCFA covers Unix and Windows forensics in detail.
