Hi, I am interested in getting involved with a professional association that focuses on computer forensics but am not sure which ones are the best for someone trying to get into the field. I am looking for one that is pretty active, provides training resources and possibly has regional events. Is anyone here active in these groups and would recommend getting involved with them?
I am in Tampa, FL. I sent in an application to the Florida Association of Computer Crime Investigators. I was wondering about anyone’s experiences with International Information Systems Forensics Association, High Tech Crime Investigation Association and any others that are not specifically for law enforcement.
HTCIA is definitely a good organization to be a member of. You can also consider going after the CCE certification, which is becoming increasing popular. Their members-only message boards have a good wealth of information, and even engagement leads sometimes.
