Computer forensics is much much more than technical wizardry. It is about keeping a clear head, and being aware of what NOT to do, as much as what you should do. The IT department is becoming an obvious point of call for any organization seeking to analyse a computer or computers that could be central to an internal investigation. As a consequence, there is a growing need to find not only the technical skills, but also the softer ‘decision-making’ and ‘investigative’ expertise that will help resolve a wide range of issues quickly, and more importantly, discreetly.
