Free Webcasts Available to Become Certified as a Digital Forensics Expert

(ISC)2® offers the Certified Cyber Forensics Professional (CCFP), the only global cyber forensics credential that provides a comprehensive validation of a candidate’s knowledge and skills as a digital forensics expert. Free CCFP Webcasts are now available that provide insight into what candidates need to know before taking this exam. It includes a detailed overview of each domain, the value of certification, and how to study for the exam

First introduced in 2013, CCFP provides the industry’s first global standard for assessing experienced digital forensics professionals’ mastery and professionalism. The credential provides digital forensics employers and the legal community with validation that a digital forensics professional can lead digital investigations that assure complete, accurate, and reliable results.Today’s CCFPs tackle a broad array of challenges from intrusion analysis to mobile forensics and more.

“Today, cyber forensics is a discipline in its own right, with its requirement now essential across the digital landscape, including mobile,” said John Colley, managing director, (ISC)² EMEA. “Given the international nature of cybercrime, it is vital that sound and commonly understood principles in the field be established, that these encompass the entire forensic process — right from discovering and handling evidence to keeping records in a manner that meets the needs of business, law enforcement, and legal communities, and that these principles can be understood across borders. The forensics professional must also be cognizant of laws and rules for evidence handling within the jurisdictions in which they operate. The CCFP has been developed to support both requirements.”

This certification is for applicants who have already established professional experience in digital forensics or IT security – and are now looking to advance their careers, network with other professionals, and continue to stay abreast of new trends and industry requirements.
