CHFI V8 course by Koenig Solutions teaches security professionals how to identify security breaches.

What is the Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI) V8 (Fast Track) course?
CHFI V8 programme offers a detailed methodical approach to computer forensics, evidence gathering and analysis.

The course enables IT security professionals to identify a malicious intruder’s footprints so that ample evidence can be gathered to prosecute the cyber criminal in a court of law. This course covers all major forensic scenarios such as mobile forensics, network forensics, application password crack, investigating logs and network traffic, investigating web attacks and so on.

The CHFI V8 training programme is designed to give practical exposure to students so they gain proficiency in applying the tools and techniques of computer forensics.

What benefits does the course give the student in the employment market?

Modern day corporate battles are being fought more and more in the cyberspace rather than in enterprise boardrooms. Increased reliance on information technology has made us all prone to cyber attacks. Organisations can’t afford to lose critical business information or get their trade secrets revealed. So the employment market is wide open for those who know how to detect hacking attacks and extract crucial evidence to report the crime, and possess the ability to conduct audits to prevent corporate espionage. The industry is constantly looking for computer forensic investigators who can also protect their organisations from future attacks.

Is it an essential qualification for IT security professionals?
Yes, because as a computer forensic expert one can play a very important role in government  and private agencies in resolving cyber crimes such as gathering evidence, tracking attacker’s information and proactively controlling similar future attacks. Companies are, therefore, actively looking for certified professionals having in-depth knowledge of a technology verified by the creator of that technology.

A CHFI certification is a must if you want to climb up the corporate ladder in the IT security domain. Many organisations give preference to certified experts when it comes to hiring people to maintain the information security of their business.

Who should attend the course?
The CHFI V8 course is highly recommended and beneficial for network administrators, system administrators and security professionals, legal professionals, bankers and defence personnel, IT managers, government officials or anyone who is concerned about integrity of  their network infrastructure.

One year experience in managing Windows/Linux/Unix systems or equivalent knowledge of these operating systems is also vital in understanding the concepts taught in the CHFI V8 fast track training programme.

How much does the course cost?
