Surprised
I am also interested in knowing what certifications I would need to be considered an "expert witness" or as in earlier post, court ready.

Those that certify that the taker can produce that kind of result.

So what certification test that particular aspect of computer forensic work? I can't say anything about LE certifications. but I don't think any non-LE cert actually does so ...

You might look for those that contain practical aspects, though ... they probably come closest.

I'm currently in college for Computer Forensics. My college offers a certification once I graduate for Computer Forensics. After I get my degree and my certification in Computer Forensics, what certifications should I go after??

In a nutshell the more forensics related education you have and can prove in court, the more you will be considered an "expert".

To be court ready I don't know that you have to be certified. It does help but not a requirement. The CCE certification from the International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners seems to be the one everyone is talking about. https :// www . isfce . com/certification.htm

Old post but I am not sure the question was really answered so I will dig it back up. Grin.

Depends on what country you are located within. In general no certification will make you or your investigation “court ready”. The forensic report you produce stands on its own and even if you have no certifications may or may not need to be defended. If you are called on to defend your report as long as you followed standard practices and did your job you and your report are good. If you messed up in some way then any number of certification you have will do your report no good. If you have deep experience, certification and education you may yet be able to talk your way out of the whatever issues you created. Then again you may not.

In very few locations you cannot do computer forensics unless you are law enforcement, a licensed investigator, or doing the work for your employer to be used within/by your organization. I do not believe there are many of those locations yet so you are very likely to be good.

When you say Forensic related education, it's not just degrees in school right? Is continuing education and certification on specific programs also lumped in there?
