Perhaps your boss does not want to lose you. Perhaps your boss feels you need more time in the trenches. Hard to say. Do you meet the requirements for working in CF at EY? If so reach out to someone at EY in a location that interests you that has CF. Let them know of your interest.

Keep in mind you have only been at EY a year.

Well, I spoke to my managers both in Mauritius and in South Africa (SA) and they told me that they want Data Analytics to remain my priority (probably because it means big money to them and they don't want to lose any trained resources in that area).
That certainly answers the question of why they do not want you to leave.

Based on their current strategy, if I stay on this path, that would mean getting SQL certifications and specializing in really techie stuff like Data Mining, which is not really where I want to go.
Too bad you are not interested in SQL. That would be a huge skill to bring to the table in incidence response/computer forensics.

You just made me pause here. I'm reconsidering the decisions I thought I'd already made. I didn't realise that SQL was a valuable skill to IR/CF. I am actually going on an overseas 3-week Analytics assignment involving SQL, starting next week.

I can imagine how people might be able to use SQL/Data Mining techniques to retrieve useful data from huge amounts of data and I suppose you would need a working knowledge of SQL to investigate injection attacks or compromised SQL servers. But are there other ways in which you can use SQL in CF?

That is pretty much hitting the nail on the head.

SQL and Oracle skills are very desirable for IR.

Another good SQL application is mobile forensics. iPhones, Androids, and BlackBerrys all use some sort of SQL databases to store tons of valuable information.
