Are CF examiner jobs as rare County Medical examiner jobs?. Other than child porn cases and a few fraud cases handled by local law enforcement -- who else needs the services of a CF examinier? I assume Federal jobs are even more rare -- on a per capita basis.

Take any large city -- say Dallas -- and imagine how many CF jobs might be in that 3 county metro area? I'm just guessing -- but maybe just a few?

I'm afraid of "irrational exuberance" in my job outlook. Is a job in CF relatively rare? Is it as rare as just a few per County? or maybe a dozen per region? Your thoughts appreciated.

Depends on how you define 'forensic'.

PCI companies -- I think there are 'certified PCI forensic service providers'. Not that PCI companies ever need their services ...

Companies with aggressive security stance may require forensic examination of computers involved in internal incidents in some situations.

And of course the intrusion response people.
