IntaForensics launches hunt for next generation of computer forensics experts

With the demand rising rapidly for computer forensics, Nuneaton-based computer forensics firm IntaForensics has enjoyed rapid growth. Now, the firm is launching a free 5-day intensive training course to attract the interest of local graduates…In recent years, as computers and mobile phones have become ubiquitous, the analysis of digital evidence (known as computer forensics) has become a necessity in the majority of legal cases. Even where a device is unlikely to have been used directly in the commission of a crime, the records on such devices may still reveal vital evidence as to motive, guilt or indeed innocence.

Andrew Frowen, Director of IntaForensics commented:

“We’re delighted to be able to offer this short introduction to computer forensics, which will provide an excellent opportunity for delegates to gain valuable experience in an exciting, growing industry, and obtain an impressive addition to their CVs.”

“Due to the specialist nature of our work, identifying suitable candidates to join the firm can prove challenging. We are therefore offering this free training week not only to increase interest among graduates, but also with a view to hiring the two best performing delegates to join IntaForensics as permanent employees.”

To qualify, applicants must hold a BSc Computer Science degree or equivalent and be available to attend the training course on the week commencing 15th February. Demand is expected to be high, with the course strictly limited to just 20 places.

The course will take at the Eliot Park Innovation Centre – selected for its close ties with technology and innovation – and will provide a broad overview of computer forensic work, including the identification of digital media; the technical requirements of preparing evidence for analysis; an introduction to key software; the analysis of the Windows operating system; and an introduction to technical reports and witness statements.

On Day 5, shortlisted delegates will be invited to take part in one-to-one reviews with IntaForensics, where they will also be interviewed for the role of Trainee Forensic Analyst.

To apply, graduates should send a covering letter and CV to hr[at]intaforensics.com with Graduate Week in the subject line.

Applications must be received by 29th January 2009.
