The Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) certification is available through the Southeast Cybercrime Institute at Kennesaw State University. Registration is available the Kennesaw State University Registrar’s office.
If a computer examination is conducted in a manner where the results can be duplicated by other examiners and all of the evidence is properly presented by the examiner, there is little that can be successfully challenged about the scientific certainty of the results. The certified computer examiner certification is a result of our desire to help ensure that forensic computer examiners use sound, verifiable methodologies, follow accepted handling of evidence procedures and adhere to sound ethical standards in presenting their evidence.
The Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) certification is available to any US citizen who has no criminal record and who has the appropriate training or experience. International and non-us citizens are eligible for the Certified Computer Examiner (CCE), however each application will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. A police clearance will be required.
In order to be complete the Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) certification process, the applicant must:
A no-fee private Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) list server has been established for all Certified Computer Examiner (CCE)s to discuss forensic issues and to share forensic information with other Certified Computer Examiner (CCE)s.
The initial Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) certification process will encompass:
The initial Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) process consists of a proctored online multiple choice question and answer examination, the forensic examination of a floppy diskette, the forensic examination of a CDR disk and the forensic examination of an image of a hard disk drive. An 80% or better average score is required to complete the process. Once the online examination has been completed, the applicant can then begin the forensic examination of the test media. The forensic examinations are designed to test the forensic knowledge and skills of the examiner. The examiner must have the appropriate tools. See Software Necessary for more information.
The primary purpose of this certification is to measure if the applicant understands and uses sound evidence handling and storage procedures and follows sound forensic examinations procedures when conducting examinations. There are reasonable technical issues that must be resolved in order to recover the evidentiary data. However, most of the grade is based upon following sound evidence handling and storage procedures and following sound examination procedures, not simply recovering the data. An 80% total average score will be required to obtain the Certified Computer Examiner (Certified Computer Examiner (CCE))® certification. Do not assume that we know your standard operating procedures. Your grade will be based solely upon what you have written in your reports and the exhibits that you provide.
If you wish to be notified of new information about the Certified Computer Examiner process as it becomes available, you can subscribe to the public Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) list server.
There is a 90-day time limit to complete this process. The 90 days starts when we send the first problem. We will extend this 90-day time period for reasons that we consider valid. In order to gain an extension, the applicant must apply for the extension before the 90-day period expires. We must approve the request in order for the extension to be granted.
We recognize that there may be differences of “expert” opinion about technical issues. A number of recognized computer forensic experts have thoroughly tested and vetted the Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) problems. We feel that the technical issues are clearly laid out, they are practical and are issues that a competent examiner should be able to discover and report. However, there is an appeal process for the Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) problems and the granting of extensions. The appeals board is impartial and will thoroughly examine all appeals by applicants.
No Criminal Record
Criminal record defined:
A conviction within or outside the United States of any sexually related offense or crime of moral turpitude.
A conviction within or outside the United States of any crime that is classified as a felony or where the penalty could have been more than 2 years imprisonment. Even if no sentence was received, the possible maximum sentence in the jurisdiction where the conviction occurred is the deciding factor.
Been the subject of a restraining order or similar court order.
Any conviction for sexual battery or similar sexual offense where the sentence could have been less than 2 years imprisonment.
Convictions for minor criminal offenses may be allowed, but will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. However we recommend, even if you have a minor conviction, that you do not apply for the Certified Computer Examiner (CCE). Even in the rare instance where we accept the applicant into the Certified Computer Examiner (CCE) process and they successfully complete the process, any conviction could bring an examiner’s credibility into issue when the examiner testifies in court.
Certified Computer Examiner Boot Camp
We will never share any of your information, spam you or annoy you with pushy sales pitches.
Without any question, InfoSec has the most gifted individual instructors. Our instructor for this class was both an excellent educator and a premier/world class security expert. He was able to clearly explain and impart to the students, the most complicated security techniques I have ever heard of or imagined. I simply can not find the words to recommend him and Infosec security training more highly.
