PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland Community College and CyberSecurity Institute have joined forces to be the exclusive training partners for the state of Oregon.
PCC will host computer forensics training courses that will provide training in computer investigations and forensic analysis. The classes cover topics such as properly acquiring, interpreting and reporting findings related to digital evidence, detecting chain of evidence, following privacy issues, and learning how to handle cases involving Windows NTFS base systems.
CyberSecurity Institute was one of the first companies in Washington state to offer computer forensic training, and has trained hundreds of professionals, including law enforcement.
“Establishing this partnership marks another milestone on the journey to fight cyber crime,” said CyberSecurity Institute President Steve Hailey. “Portland Community College will be a driving force to further educate those with this responsibility.”
Hailey is an information technology veteran of 23 years, with 16 years experience developing and delivering technical training. He has been conducting forensic analysis professionally since 1997, and instructing digital forensic curriculum since 1999. Hailey instructs the information security and digital forensics curriculum at Edmonds Community College in Washington state.
