Re: Is a career change to Computer Forensics fantasy or can it be real ity?



I looked on Dice just searching for Forensics. I live in the Midwest
and there were no jobs around. Mostly DOD related.
Is a CISSP cert as well a good route as well?

Wayne, below are the podcasts I listen to, only one is Forensics
specific (CyberSpeak) the others are more to the security side of
things.

Ismael, the advice that I got from the Forensics moderator was, "I
think you'll find that the field of forensics is not cert-oriented.
Your time might be better spent choosing a platform you
know well and learning all you can about
forensics on that platform: which tools are available, how they work,
how well they work,
etc. Ins+outs of relevant filesystms would be quite helpful.".

Keep the comments and advice coming.

Thanks,

MH
