Welcome to the start of the Forensic Expedition blog. This blog was created to chronical my journey through obtaining not only various digital forensics certifications but chronical the growth of my knowledge and experience in the realm of digital forensics.
I chose the name Forensic Expedition for several reasons. The Oxford dictionary defines Expedition as:
- a journey or voyage undertaken by a group of people with a particular purpose, especially that of exploration, scientific research, or war.
- promptness or speed in doing something
These are both great definitions for how I see my journey into the digital forensics world. Not only am I embarking on a new journey but it is a journey of scientific research and learning in a field that requires exactness and promptness.
It is my hope that this blog will be beneficial to both those getting started and wanting to obtain certifications in the field as well as those that are already active in the arena.
Although I have a Bachelor of Science in Security and Forensics from Kaplan University I currently get limited day to day exposure to digital forensics. I am currently the Citrix Administrator for a financial institution located in Texas and my primary focus is on Citrix VDI as well as information security.
With my passion being in the security and forensics realm I am gradually working to steer my path more towards the forensics world and hope to accomplish that by not only obtaining various certifications but also through lab practice and utilizing forensic techniques more often in my daily job.
I hope you can join me on this expedition and find the journey not only entertaining but beneficial.
