Guidance Software, the world leader in computer forensics solutions, today announced the launch of its EnCase(R) Certified Examiner Program (EnCE). The program has been developed to validate the experience and skills of computer forensics professionals.

Computer forensics technology is used to collect and examine computer evidence in criminal and corporate investigations and civil litigation matters. Used by top law enforcement agencies, consulting firms and corporations worldwide, EnCase is the most widely employed and recognized computer forensics software suite. It therefore requires a standardized certification program that acknowledges an investigator’s expertise.

“Guidance Software is a leader in the field of computer forensics technology, producing software and hardware products and offering forensic methodology training,” said Bob Sheldon, vice president of Guidance Software. “EnCE certification is an extension of our training program and a continuation of our efforts to serve the computer forensics community.”

Guidance Software, in partnership with Prometric, a leading worldwide provider of technology-based testing and assessment services, will administer the certification program. Interested candidates may obtain an application from Guidance’s Web site, www.EnCase.com.

Based in Pasadena, and with offices in Virginia and the United Kingdom, Guidance Software is the world leader in computer investigative software, hardware and training.
