Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 24, 2012
The computer forensics industry is a buzz currently with the upcoming Hacker Halted conference and the CHFI (Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator) class that is going to be taught by forensics Superstar Robert Reed at the conference. As the Hacker Halted conference grabs the attention of the hacking and forensics world, TrainACE releases data about the average salary of forensics professionals.
TrainACE has been a Forensics training leader since 2005 and has received multiple awards in this regard. The company just recently released data on what the industry is paying computer forensics professionals. Their study included the use of multiple sources, multiple job titles and varying degrees of experience in the field. The data released also includes figures from different regions of the United States as well as varying major regions internationally. The data in this study shows how in-demand computer forensics skill sets are these days. With cyber attacks and hacking criminals arising at record rates, forensics is the key to help bring the attackers to justice. The numbers shown are generally high compared to the average salary of the majority of other industries. These numbers are impressive considering they take in to account experience levels from 1 year to 20+ years. The data and report can be found here (http://www.trainace.com/blog/the-average-salary-of-a-computer-forensics-career-and-the-ec-council-chfi-certification/).
The Hacker halted conference has become known for increasing quality in its technical delivery, something that is not necessarily an aspect of all tech and security conferences. The EC-Council, who founded Hacker Halted and the CHFI certification, has put major focus on bringing in top industry names to both speak and present at the conference. The EC-Council holds classes prior to the conference kick-off at the same venue. With all of the excitement in computer forensics, their CHFI certification class has been one of the most anticipated, especially since the class is being taught by noted forensics expert Robert Reed. The class will be held for the four days leading up to the conference. Enrollment into the class also provides the attendee with, courseware, a certification exam voucher, full conference pass, an invitation to the world famous Hacker Halted party as well as a free iPad.
The training runs from 10/25/12 until 10/28 and the conference runs from 10/29 until 10/31 at the Intercontinental Hotel, Chopin Plaza in Downtown Miami, Florida. The CHFI exam is taken on the final day of class.
