First off, I just want to say I am glad I came across this forum and I thank everyone in advance for their help/advice.
I am a recent college grad (May 08) working as an IT Security consultant, and I am looking to start working my way into computer forensics. I wanted to know what certification would be best to start with? I do not have too much experience in forensics other than working a little bit with FTK in a classroom setting. Therefore, I am looking for a certification that is more of a mid-level and not to advance, since I am still wet behind the ears in the forensics area. More specifically, I am looking for an exam that is passable with little real world experience, and after taking a training course and applying one's self.
Some certifications I am considering are the CCE, CEH, and EnCase. I considered the C|HFI, but I have herd it doesnt not carry too much weight in the world of certifications.
Thank you for your help!
