The National Computer Forensics Institute (NCFI) is dedicated to the education of law enforcement professionals in the field of computer forensics and digital evidence handling techniques.
The NCFI includes five high-tech classrooms, a mock courtroom, a computer forensic lab, and other meeting and training areas. The United States Secret Service will implement both cyber crime and computer forensic training for state and local law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges from across the country.
Today’s high-tech environment presents new challenges to law enforcement as cyber criminals exploit computers and the Internet to threaten our banking, financial and critical infrastructures. Therefore, it is imperative to address the changes in technology by providing training on cyber-investigative techniques and by sharing current expertise.
The Secret Service is pleased to provide this training with the establishment of the National Computer Forensics Institute.
