Want to get into Computer Forensics

By rockinmycountry ·
I am a criminal justice major, getting a certificate in IA. I want to get into computer forensics after taking a couple courses on cyber crime and computer crime. What do you all suggest I do in order to bolster my resume? I am working on my A+ and Network+ as something to fall back on, should I also look into Security+ after I get Network+, is there something better out there for computer forensics. Any help or suggestions, as always it is appreciated.

If you download and use free distros (like BackTrack), read up on forensics, maybe check out some of the courses offered, you'll start getting a general idea of what you need to know. If you can get a job in forensics, I'm sure there would be a lot of specific in-house training anyway - and I bet a demonstration of the knowledge, flexibility, and ability to learn will go a long way. That being said, various certs don't hurt.
