Am currently studying BSc (Hons) Computer Science at The Open University,I have a strong desire to pursue MSc Forensic Computing & I have already applied for it at Bradford University(UK),as of now,am still awaiting my transcripts in order for my present university to release them,so wish me luck guys.

All I want to know right now is this; does computer forensics anyhow involve criminal investigations?b/c am more interested in working for an agency of that nature.

Thank you,

Rams Smile

It could -- the term 'forensic' properly applies to any investigation that ends up in a court of law or a place/situation with similar standards for evidence quality. If you plan to study 'computer forensics', keep in mind that you need to study relevant law and legal regulations and practicalities.

The term is also used for 'private' infractions of rules or regulations in a business environment, although this only is exceptional cases 'forensic', as most such cases are kept within the organization.

The term 'forensic computing' I think originates with Tony Sammes and Brian Jenkinson, who preferred to avoid the term 'Computer Forensics' as it (in the UK) was associated with a commercial company.

Hi there.
I am a Criminal Investigator assigned to investigate cybercrime cases. I am stationed in Cape Town South Africa.
There is a big field for growth in this area and also a drive from goverment to increase investigation skills in this field. So thre is scope for you to be emloyed by a agency. You just have to find the right agency.
