Hi, I am new to the site and everything and I am currently undergoing my Bachelors in Computer Information Systems with a Computer Forensics Track through Devry University. I was just wondering what everyone thought about the career and is there any special certifications I should get and which ones first. I am looking to get a job doing this when I graduate in a couple of years.

Thanks for all info in advance.

P.S. Like the site. Full of info

Certification choice depends on your intended direction. If you want to do penetration testing or incident response, I'd pick either CEH or CHFI. If you want to do investigations (LE or corporate), I'd go CCE.

Just my opinion, which won't get you much even on the open market. Smile

i like it. i am currently enrolled and this is my first semester. i havent done anything yet. but i cant wait until i do. i will keep you updated as the semesters go on.


also how would you go about shadowing a computer forensics investigator, or can you. i would like to shadow one for a couple of hours or a day to get like "a day in the life" type of thing. I am curious as to how they work.

thank you

Depends, because you would have to find someone that is working on a project that is open for a civilians view; most projects deal with court cases or other things that wouldn't really allow you to peak in.

not to mention the govenrment aspect... security clearances are a pain depending on who they work for. The school I went to did something called an informational interview. Something like this forum where you talk to someone in the field and they give you a general overview of what their life is like. I also attended several confrences where I made some good contacts. I found that most helpful.

Hey bender, I know that its been like a year and a half since u posted this, and was just wondering if you could give an update on your program? I visited and spoke with an advisor from Devry last night, so right now I'm just researching the CF program a little bit more before I choose that as my emphasis. I'd love to hear how your experience is going, I would greatly appreciate it if you would share yours. Thanks! Smile

Please don't post on threads this old. You have posted around 10 times today in less than 10 minutes. These should be more constructive posts, keep in mind that most of the people on these forums may be potential employers. Most of the info you are looking for easily available by searches. I am not trying to be rude, I went through the same thing when I started going on forums; it's a learning process. Good luck at Devry.
