Professional training essential for developing a forensic readiness policy


Ely, England, 12 June2012IT Governance Ltd, the global experts in information security training, have reported that they are running their next Digital Forensics Foundation training course on 29 June in London.

Alan Calder, CEO of IT Governance, says, ‘Digital forensics readiness is essential for any company with a cyber-presence – combating cybercrime requires every organisation to have a basic in-house first-response cyber forensics capability.’

The Digital Forensics Foundation training course, presented by a qualified Computer Forensics specialist and Expert Witness, is designed to deliver a comprehensive introduction to digital forensics and help delegates develop an effective forensic readiness plan for their organisation.

One previous delegate commented, ‘An excellent introduction for the time period. Good to have insight from someone who is a practitioner.’

The adoption of a forensic readiness policy is now a mandatory requirement of the Security Policy Framework (SPF) of all UK government departments (HMG Security Policy Framework v.4.0, May 2010). Professionals working for companies that are suppliers to UK national or local government may also require a forensic readiness policy.

The Digital Forensics Foundation training course covers issues such as defining a strategy, identifying responsibilities and putting the required arrangements in place. It provides critical advice to enable organisations to fulfill the Cabinet Office ‘minimum mandatory measures’ requirement to have a ‘forensic readiness policy’.

The Digital Forensics Foundation training course will teach delegates how to minimise the risk of data loss without necessarily spending thousands on technology. The course will enable them to implement practical solutions in order to prevent both accidental and deliberate data security breaches.

This Digital Forensics Foundation training course is particularly suitable for IT Directors and CISOs through to IT Managers. People in these roles need to understand the basics of digital forensics as a discipline and to have an instructive overview of the types of information which can be found on computers, mobile phones and other forms of digital media.

The Digital Forensics Foundation training course  fits well with the CISSP and SSCP CPE programme and is worth 8 credits, making attendance on this course a career-enhancing move for security professionals. It is also worth 8 hours of Continuing Professional Education for all other professional CPE programmes.
