Training to Explore

“I think in the current technology climate you cannot be a forensic investigator nine to five. Aside from any training you are given, one of the best things to have is an interest in technology outside the office - otherwise you are probably in the wrong job. Keeping up on tech news, the newest hardware or the latest ‘features’ may have an impact on what data you will have access to.”
