Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator(CHFI) EC-Council’s

Computer Hacking Forensic Investigation is the process of detecting cyber-attacks and systematically extracting evidence to support the cyber-crime investigation report, and conducting periodic audits to prevent similar attacks in future. CHFI certification training validates an individual’s knowledge of computer forensics for reporting hacking attempts and attacks in the courts of law. Computer forensics training covers analysis tools and techniques that can be employed for a computer investigation for determining potential legal evidence against the perpetrator. Evidence might be related to a wide range of cyber-crimes, including but not limited to misuse of confidential data, theft of trade secrets, misuse or destruction of intellectual property, and online fraud. A computer forensics certification or CHFI certification v8 imparts core skills for data recovery that encompasses discovering hidden data residing in a system, and recovering lost, encrypted, deleted, or damaged data.
