The Federal Bureau of Investigation, in partnership with Carnegie Mellon University, the FBI's Cyber Division and the International Association of Chiefs of Police, has developed the new Cyber Investigation Certification Program. The self-guided online program is available to federal, state, local, tribal and territorial law enforcement personnel on the FBI's Law Enforcement Enterprise Portal. Each course has an assessment at the end of the training, and upon successful completion of each course, participants will receive a course certificate.
This course is designed to teach law enforcement first responders how to survey and secure today’s crime scene with an increasing amount of digital artifacts. The goal of this course is to improve a first responders’ technical knowledge by focusing on the investigative methodology specific to a cyber investigation and thereby reducing errors.
The first responder course is available now and additional courses are in planning and development. To find out more, go to https://fbi-cicp.cert.org/lms. Once at the site, the Quick Start Guide will provide additional information to include the steps required to enroll in the program.
