Forensics experts tend to work alone or in small groups and have few ways of sharing the most important lessons they are learning. SANS is trying to fill that gap in part because SANS trained many of the most effective forensics analysts and feels a responsibility for keeping their skills and knowledge up to date…A first step is SANS’ new Computer Forensic and e-Discovery Web site, http://forensics.sans.org/info/34933, a community-focused site offering a one-stop resource to learn, discuss, and share current developments in the field of digital forensics. It also provides current information on forensics training and certification in the field.
Fraud, intrusion, insider threats, phishing, and other cyber-crimes require specialized skills to unravel incidents and fight back. Law enforcement professionals and information technology professionals will find valuable specialized advice, research, training, and other resources related to computer forensics at http://forensics.sans.org/info/34933.
