Re: Forensic/Cyber Crime Investigator

According to "one of the first CYBERSPACE private investigators", he says he can do a background check on a person in 5 
minutes flat.  So I guess part of being a "CYBERSPACE private investigator" is that one has to know how to b.s. their 
clients and always say your buddies work for three letter agencies and not persons who sell fake "authentic" badges and 
lighters that are mini-camera, but look like a zippo

Hi List,

I tried posting this before, didn't go through. So I am trying again.

I am interested in becoming a Forensics/Cyber Crime Investigator
preferably with any law enforcement agency in Canada. I will graduate
this April with a Bachelor in Computer Engineering. I have some
experince in Forensics and IT security from coop placements and wanted
to take this option as a career.

My questions are:

1) What kind of certification is the most demanding/respected among
law enforcement aganices in Canada/US?

2) If anyone on the list is with RCMP, OPP or any other law
enforcement agency here could you please give me any information on a
possible career path. Where do I start? Are these kind of jobs
considered as a civilian job?

3) Those in the USA: could you please tell me if I can have any
prospect there as a Canadian citizen. I would imagine you would need
an US citizen to work in the law enforcement agencies, but what about
private organizations?

4) Any information in building a career path in this field would be helpful.

Thanks everyone.
