If you or your organization requires the knowledge or skills to identify, track, and prosecute the cyber-criminal, then this is the course for you.

Computer hacking forensic investigation is the process of detecting hacking attacks and properly extracting evidence to report the crime and conduct audits as well to prevent future attacks. Further to reporting computer forensics is the application of investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining presentable legal evidence. Evidence might be sought in a wide range of computer crime or misuse, including but not limited to theft of trade secrets, theft of or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud. CHFI investigators can draw on an array of methods for discovering data that resides in a computer system, or recovering deleted, encrypted, or damaged file information. Securing and analyzing electronic evidence is a central theme in an ever-increasing number of conflict situations and criminal cases.
