Digital Forensic Certification by DFCBMarch 4, 2010
New certification process;
Professional certifications in digital forensics are something the community has needed for years and it is now a reality. The Digital Forensics Certification Board (DFCB) professional certifications are truly independent and community driven. The DFCB certification program was developed with National Institute of Justice (NIJ) funding. The terms for the development of this certification program by consensus were followed. The DFCB will eventually be applying for recognition by the Forensic Specialties Accreditation Board (FSAB). which is currently recognized by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.
Applications for the “Founders” process will be accepted March 1, 2009 through August 30, 2009. Beginning September 2009 those seeking DFCB certifications will be required to sit for a comprehensive certification exam.
There are (2) types of forensic certifications offered, Digital Forensic Certified Practitioner (DFCP) and the Digital Forensic Certified Associate (DFCA). The Founders process offers those of you, who have been active for years in the digital forensic discipline, the opportunity to become certified by demonstrating your expertise and experience. The process is outlined below. Once the Founders process concludes, those seeking certification will be required to sit for a comprehensive exam.
