How Cellebrite Partners with Universities to Empower the Next Generation of Digital Forensics Professionals
The next generation of digital forensics students has grown up with digital technology as an integral part of their lives. To transform this raw talent into future-ready, digital forensics professionals, universities need to provide courses that cover the most relevant solutions used by law enforcement agencies every day to solve real crimes.
As the industry leader in digital intelligence (DI), Cellebrite recognizes the tremendous responsibility and challenge that universities have in keeping their curriculum up-to-date. To answer this challenge, Cellebrite has developed a comprehensive course with students and recruiters from law enforcement agencies in mind, that is easily integrated into existing university curriculums.
Empowering Staff to Teach with State-Of-The-Art Solutions
The course provides the same solutions used in Cellebrite forensics labs around the world to students who want to learn how to access, manage, and analyze digital data from the latest devices and digital channels. University staff can be confident in advancing their students’ skill set with an industry-proven course that includes strategic content and hands-on experience. Students will be able to enter the workforce landscape with the most up-to-date digital forensics due-processes and best practices accepted by courts.
Avoiding Another Tech Workforce Shortage
Agencies are looking to recruit new digital forensics employees who have practical experience using industry-standard solutions that are certified by judicial systems around the world. Tech-savvy students entering university may be oblivious to the exploitation of digital data and devices by criminals whose cases are flooding the justice system.
It is important for students to understand that law enforcement’s digital challenge will present many opportunities for career advancement just as it has in other industries that have become dominated by digital technologies.
To fill in the growing digital forensics employment landscape and avoid the shortage crisis being experienced in the Cybersecurity workforce, universities must plan now to prepare the next generation of digital investigators and examiners for the job market.
When top digital forensics talent is educated with cutting-edge solutions, agencies can look forward to diminishing crime through DI in a world that demands a steeper learning curve.
