EC-Council Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (ECHFI)
Description of Course
The detection of hacking attacks and finding out the proper extracting evidence for the crime report and for the audit department to conduct an audit and save the system from further future attacks is called Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator Certification.
With the rise in the number of computer crimes in the world of cyber has risen. The Government, Police, some other corporate entities which exist globally, etc, use the techniques of Computer investigation. But there are a few who turn up to the EC-Council for having learning and mastery through the Program of Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator Certification.
There has been seen a change of terms in both Computer Security and Investigations. For the conduct of proper Computer Investigations varied tools are being developed daily covering which can also take care of, Computer Crime, Investigations, Data recovery from a Standard Computer, Digital forensics, etc. The students are prepared using such tools and techniques for conducting computer investigations using some of the groundbreaking technologies of digital forensics. All of these tools and techniques are covered under the EC- Council’s CHFI program.
The application of the computer investigation and the techniques of the analysis is what is Computer forensics. These techniques are under the interest of deriving some potential legal evidence. In the varied computer misuse, which includes computer crime, there needs to be sought some proper evidence. These computer crimes include but don’t limits itself with the destruction of the intellectual property, the theft of the same or even the trade secrets and sometimes fraud. For the discovery of varied data that resides in the system of the computer or recovering of any deleted data or recovery of file information damaged, for which varied methods are used by the CFHI investigators is in together called to be as the computer data recovery.
Digital forensic practices stem from forensic science, the science of collecting and examining evidence or materials. Digital or computer forensics focuses on the digital domain including computer forensics, network forensics, and mobile forensics. As the cyber security profession evolves, organizations are learning the importance of employing digital forensic practices into their everyday activities. Computer forensic practices can help investigate attacks, system anomalies, or even help System administrators detect a problem by defining what is normal functional specifications and validating system information for irregular behaviors.
In the event of a cyber-attack or incident, it is critical investigations be carried out in a manner that is forensically sound to preserve evidence in the event of a breach of the law. Far too many cyber-attacks are occurring across the globe where laws are clearly broken and due to improper or non-existent forensic investigations, the cyber criminals go either unidentified, undetected, or are simply not prosecuted.
Cyber Security professionals who acquire a firm grasp on the principles of digital forensics can become invaluable members of Incident Handling and Incident response teams. The Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator course provides a strong baseline knowledge of key concepts and practices in the digital forensic domains relevant to today’s organizations. CHFI provides its attendees a firm grasp on the domains of digital forensics.
The CHFI certification is awarded after successfully passing the exam EC0 312-49. CHFI EC0 312-49 exams are available at ECC exam center around the world.

In order to maintain the high integrity of our certifications exams, EC-Council Exams are provided in multiple forms (I.e. different question banks). Each form is carefully analyzed through beta testing with an appropriate sample group under the purview of a committee of subject matter experts that ensure that each of our exams not only has academic rigor but also has “real world” applicability. We also have a process to determine the difficulty rating of each question. The individual rating then contributes to an overall “Cut Score” for each exam form. To ensure each form has equal assessment standards, cut scores are set on a “per exam form” basis. Depending on which exam form is challenged, cut scores can range from 60% to 78%.
