      If you saw some of my previous posts you can see that I was planning on attending the CHFI course that is given by Infosec, but there have been some schedule conflicts and been thinking about it also.

      Let me ask you guys:

      Should I take the CEH first and the do the CHFI?

      I have been told it is better to be a hacker first ( I know it’s CEH so I am using the term “hacker lightly”) and then learn to find the hacker.  So after I take the CEH then do the CHFI.

      What’s your opinion.

      I’d say the best forensic investigators tend to look at both sides of the coin.  I myself have been focused on both ethical hacking and forensic investigation for awhile after I get my associates degree in forensics I’m going to start with the CHFI then get work to send me to all the sans courses they can.

      Ya see that’s how I was seeing it at first.  I had a few different people tell me to “be a hacker, then be a person that finds them”  I was also told vice versa.

      But the way it worked out with my school and the location of the classes it worked better to drop the CHFI class for now and just use the money I already paid for the CEH.  I guess this will help me as I am open to go into either field, Network Security or Computer Forensics.

      So strange. I thought I saw months ago that either the CEH was a prereq or that the CHFI was the next step after CEH. But I can’t find that now. Hmm… maybe I’ll be changing my plans then.

      EC-Council recommends CEH prior to CHFI. It’s not a requirement, just a recommendation.

      Just got this in my email. It’s one of their ‘First Look’ webinars for CHFI:

      Registration Link

          EC-Council Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator(C|HFI) First Look

          Join this live online training led by EC-Council lead trainer Kevin Cardwell, as he shares with you some of the interesting topics from EC-Council Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (CHFI) program.

          In this session, Kevin will be covering the following modules:

          Module 26: Network Forensics & Investigating Logs

          Module 27: Investigating Network Traffic

          Module 28: Router Forensics

          In this 3 hours online training session, you will be introduced to network forensics, you will learn how normal network traffic patterns look during protocol analysis, and you will get to see indications of attack attempts that are typically encountered when analyzing network traffic from a cybercrime event.

          This training session will conclude with an introduction to router forensics, an area that is often overlooked as a potential source of evidence, and Kevin will share and show why forensics investigation should take a look at the router and the potential evidence it may contain.

      Yes, thanks for the link.  Anyone have a contact to ask if there is a recording of this also. I may not be able to attend as I have a FT job that doesn’t deal with computers.  Or does anyone know of some free software that will let me record it?

      I think the recording is usually available at the same link.

      I didn’t account for the timezone, but I caught the last few mins and they said the recording will be available on the website tomorrow.

      You are corect, I emailed the guy on the confirmation email when you sign up and he said it will be recorded and put online at the same link.

      BillV/Joshsevo – which “same link?”  The gotomeeting registration link BillV posted last week?

      Yeah – though you may have to register to gain access to the recording.
