Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator - CHFI

4.5/5

Computer forensics is the process of using computers to extract information from a computer that may be useful in legal proceedings. Computer forensics focuses on data recovery and digital investigation methods that are used to find potential evidence in either cyber-related crimes or internal corporate matters such as when employee computers violate company policies, intrusion attacks where hackers break into client systems and steal data and so on. CHFI investigators can simply draw on an array of tools for discovering important information, buried deep within a computer system, which can be vital to the outcome of a trial by providing instruction, proof or evidence.
