certified computer forensics examiner

The Certified Computer Forensics Examiner (CCFE) certification is offered through the Information Assurances Certification Review Board (IACRB), a vendor-neutral certifying body formed by security professionals. The CCFE exam tests a candidate’s fundamental knowledge of the computer forensics evidence recovery and analysis process. Candidates must prove that they have the requisite background knowledge of the complex legal issues that relate to the computer forensics field. Candidates also are vetted via a comprehensive practical examination that requires the candidate to perform a computer forensics examination on the case files, write up a report that could be used as evidence in a court of law, and then submit the report for grading.
