Article Body:
Computer forensics is the investigation and analysis of a crime using a
computer to help solve the case. Computer forensics is used to
investigate crimes with high tech programs. Computer forensics can also
be used to prepare digital data suitable for inclusion in a criminal
investigation.

A wide variety of methods are used to discover data hidden in a computer
system. Specialists are sometimes used to help recover deleted, encrypted
or damaged file information. Any or all evidence obtained can be used for
discovery, depositions or actual litigation. People who are specialized
in computer forensics are sometimes referred to as a CCE or a Certified
Computer Examiner. Computer forensic training involves a training program
with online exams.

Most computer forensic courses equip a student with a full range of
computer forensics skills. Students learn to build digital forensics
toolkits. They also develop skills to track an offender on the Internet,
define proper evidence handling procedures and learn how to work with law
enforcement agencies. The students learn to apply proven investigative
strategies and are finally awarded their CCE certifications.

Computer forensic training programs cover issues like networks and
protocols and the architecture of operating systems. They also include
crime analysis and crime scene management and courtroom/expert witness
skills.

Computer forensic training also educates cyber crime investigators in
techniques of computer forensic investigations. Students are eligible for
a Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator Certification or CHFI.

Government agencies and private sector companies have seen an increased
demand for computer forensics in the last decade. Computer based evidence
is often used in cases where incriminating documents are likely to be
found on a computer like financial fraud and child pornography. Civil
cases make use of business and personal records found on computer systems
for fraud, divorce, discrimination and harassment cases.

In order to keep pace with the ever-changing technology and advances,
course materials for computer forensic training are constantly upgraded
to keep candidates updated on the latest techniques and skills in the
field of forensics.
