The Certified Digital Forensics Examiner vendor-neutral certification is designed to train Cyber Crime and Fraud Investigators whereby students are taught electronic discovery and advanced investigation techniques. This Certified Digital Forensics Examiner (CDFE) Training Workshop is essential to anyone encountering digital evidence while conducting an investigation. Our CDFE Training teaches the methodology for conducting a computer forensic examination. Students will learn to use forensically sound investigative techniques in order to evaluate the scene, collect and document all relevant information, interview appropriate personnel, maintain chain-of-custody, and write a findings report.

The Certified Digital Forensics Examiner (CDFE) Training Workshop course will benefit organizations, individuals, government offices, and law enforcement agencies interested in pursuing litigation, proof of guilt, or corrective action based on digital evidence. An example of “corrective action” would be the termination of an employee for a violation of computer usage where digital evidence was needed to support the allegation. The investigator must furnish an irrefutable burden of proof based on that digital evidence. If not irrefutable, an attorney knowledgeable about Computer Forensics could have the case thrown out of court. Government or investigative agencies need proper training to succeed in cases like the above as well as those including acts of fraud, computer misuse, illegal pornography, counterfeiting, and so forth.
