What classes do I need to take in order to be a computer forensic analyst and what type of jobs are available?
Hi! Since my sophomore-ish year of high school I always wanted to know what classes I actually need to take and what my career choice would fall on, like major-wise. I also wanted to know what type of jobs do people with that major can get.....so I kind of have a more specific idea of what to study in when I go to university. By the way, I would also want to study abroad to the United Kingdom and sort of live there....or work there.
It’s awesome that you want to become a forensic analyst! We need more women in the field to add diverse perspectives. For me it has been a truly rewarding and enjoyable career. You want to enroll in classes that cover Computer Seizure and forensic examination procedures, malware investigations, Countermeasures for malware and current issues in forensics overall. You also want to make sure you have a good understanding of networking, network security and computer security. If there are industry certifications that you can get at discounted rates with your classes, I definitely recommend taking them.
