EC Council Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator v9
Introducing Chfi V9: World’s Most Comprehensive Computer Forensic Certification Program
Digital technologies are changing the face of business. As organizations rapidly embracing digital technologies such as cloud, mobile, big data and IOT, the context of digital forensics is more relevant than before. The growing number of cybercrimes has changed the role of forensics from DNA to Digital. According to the market research report published by IndustryARC, by 2020, the digital forensics market will reach 4.8 billion USD. IndustryARC also predicts that the maximum use of digital forensics is from the federal sector and this will grow from $1,097.2 million in 2015 to $2,060.5 million by 2020. The major drivers for this are increasing threats from cybercrime and terrorist attacks. Foote Partners, which tracks information technology (IT) jobs across all skill levels, projects the global demand for cyber security talent to rise to six million by 2019, with an expected shortfall of 1.5 million professionals.
