Certification by the DFCB requires several progressive steps, including a minimum of five years’ professional experience, a comprehensive examination, review of credentials, and background check. It also requires that members uphold strict standards for professional competence and ethical behavior.
“I am gratified to have been accepted into this prestigious professional association,”
Margaret Valenzuela, Executive Vice President at Altep, commented on LaTulippe’s achievement. “Certification by the Digital Forensics Certification Board is an extremely rigorous process. Their standards for professional expertise, education, field experience and ethical behavior are among the highest in the scientific community. We are very proud of Tim’s achievement, and count ourselves fortunate to have him on our Forensics team.”
The Digital Forensics Certification Board was established in 2004 by the National Institute of Justice Cooperative Agreement, to provide an objective certification process, establish a formal code of ethics for the profession, and promote public trust and confidence. The board is administered by the International Association of Financial Crimes Investigators.
