NW3C is the National White Collar Crime Center (nw3c dot org). They have quite a few classes. The two I mentioned are the starting point.

Being in the box is a bit different as an examiner than as a patrol officer or even a detective, however your experience in seeing the shenanigans that go on in court will serve you well.

As far as books, File System Forensic Analysis by Brian Carrier is a text book for almost every starting forensic class I have run across and a reference for the rest of us. For Windows, I would recommend the books by Harlan Carvey.

Just looking at my bookshelf I have 33+ books on CF not including all the books/manuals from various training courses. Some are very specific like CD & DVD Forensics others very general. But a lot of examiners I work with only have a few books so YMMV.

Hi,

I am new and highly interested in computer forensics. I currently have no knowledge of this discipline and as an introduction I would like to know if there are any open source or free training to get me started in this field.

Regards
Sean

I actually hate replying like this, but the best answer is to direct you to www dot google dot com. If you are not able to use google to locate basic information like this, you will have a very tough time in this field.

You might also want to check out these links to free or low-cost courses:

http :// www . teexwmdcampus . com/index.k2

As for books, besides Windows Forensic Analysis, I also recommend Guide to Computer Forensics & Investigations by Bill Nelson. as well as The Basics of Digital Forensics: The Primer for Getting Started in Digital Forensics by John Sammons.

Those are good starting points. Have at it and have fun. Thanks.

Hello

I am based in the UK. I would like to get back into IT and study Digital Forensics. Please could someone advise me which courses to take after I have been out of the Industry for 9 years. I would ideally like to get some experience but it is nigh on impossible without a post graduate degree, which I do not have. I am 43 so going back to University isn't an option but I could do an Open University Degree whilst working. Please could someone help me to channel the time and money into the correct courses so I can then perhaps find a job at a Trainee entry and work on skills and education throughout employment or I am deluding myself?!
Thank you

I am confused. You want to know what courses to take, however "going back to University isn't an option". Yet you posted "like to get some experience but it is nigh on impossible without a post graduate degree".

If you need a post graduate degree for the job you want, go back to University. There are plenty of people older than you at University.
