WELCOME to the Website of Computer Forensics Institute, Nigeria (CFIN), and we seize this opportunity to invite you to join the prestigious profession for Digital Forensics Examiners, that is, certified individuals who specialize in the detection, investigation and prevention of digital and computer crime and who support Law-enforcement Agencies, Judiciary, Prosecutors and Defense Counsels by skillful handling of digital evidence.

Digital forensics is a new and fast growing profession.  It can be defined as the process of identifying, preserving, analyzing and presenting digital evidence in a manner that is legally acceptable.  It is open to all who are prepared to abide by the Professional Code of Ethics of the profession and who have no criminal record.  This website was developed to provide you with enough information about the Institute and how you can benefit from its training and certification.

With the enactment of the Evidence Act, 2011 and the Cybercrime Act, 2015, the era of digital and computer forensics has finally arrived in Nigeria. No doubt that prosecution under these Acts will create demands for Digital and Computer Forensics Examiners in Nigeria.

Why not get certified and join this challenging and highly rewarding profession, TODAY!
