The Certified Forensic Computer Examiner (CFCE) certification program is based on a series of core competencies in the field of computer/digital forensics. IACIS offers the CFCE certification program to prospective candidates who wish to attain the CFCE certification. The program is comprised of a peer review phase and certification phase. The peer review phase provides candidates with a guided or mentored process whereby candidates are able to submit reports or assessment documents after completing each practical exercise. Once the candidate successfully completes the Peer Review phase, candidates may enter the CFCE certification phase within a specified time frame. The CFCE certification is an independent exercise wherein the candidate must complete a practical exercise and written final examination. Upon successful completion, the candidate will be awarded the Certified Forensic Computer Examiner (CFCE) certification.
Each certified CFCE member must satisfy recertification requirements every three years. IACIS offers proficiency tests on a regular basis for organizations or laboratories that require frequent proficiency tests. Likewise, proficiency tests are offered to certified CFCE members in the third year from the initial date of certification for the sole purpose of recertification.
