IT security professionals offered fast-track computer crime course

IT professionals looking to gain computer forensic certification are being offered an accelerated six-day course by the Training Camp.

The IT training provider said its course is aimed at e-security experts, police, military personnel, legal professionals and government agencies. It aims to give anyone from an IT manager to a chief security officer the skills to detect, pursue and analyse evidence of computer crime or misuse.

The Training Camp promises to take students through a range of real-life computer crime issues, ranging from e-mail fraud or industrial espionage by employees, to computer break-ins, theft and possession of pornography.

"All computer crime, from hacking to downloading porn, leaves a trail of evidence which must be preserved and analysed to gain a successful prosecution," said Robert Chapman, co-founder of the Training Camp.

"The course will not only show IT professionals how to track this evidence, but will also provide an insight into how criminals use and abuse technology to their own ends."

A particularly important part of the course will be on how to recover and preserve evidence for use in prosecutions. There is increasing demand for accreditation of security experts. The British Computer is calling for a formal recognition process for security specialists working at expert witnesses.

The Training Camp also offers a course in ethical hacking, where participants identify system weaknesses and learn the latest techniques in penetration testing.
