Last chance: CHFIv4 will retire on Aug 30

In February 2012, ECCouncil announced that it will be releasing the brand new Version 8 of the Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFIv8). The course is designed to apply necessary skills to security professionals so that they can “identify an intruder’s footprints and to properly gather the required evidence to prosecute in the court of law”.

The program has been available since February 27, 2012. This means that Version 4 has become redundant and will be officially retired as of August 30, 2012. If there are any CHFIv4 students who have not yet attempted the exam or are waiting to re-sit, they have until August 30th, 2012 to take the exam.
