NINETEEN YEARS OF EXPERIENCE.

EdCC has been offering cybersecurity and digital forensics (a.k.a. computer forensics) training since 1999; long before these subjects were as popular and mainstream as they are today. Several of our instructors are internationally recognized experts in information security and digital forensics and they train other instructors throughout the nation to deliver information security and digital forensics curriculum. As well, they are subject matter experts in Cyberterrorism for the Department of Homeland Security. It's no wonder that EdCC was recently certified as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Agency.

If you have a desire to become an expert and want to be trained by experts, you're in the right place. As a matter of fact, we'd like to make sure that our program is a good fit for you. We invite you to try before you buy and to check our instructors out.

EdCC digital forensics students recently worked on a computer trespass case for a law enforcement agency.

One of the most important aspects of becoming proficient in digital forensics is being able to work on cases from start to finish. While students typically perform work on simulated cases in the classroom, some EdCC students have the opportunity to work on actual cases - having their first case under their belt before they even graduate.

Your digital forensics instructors maintain a working relationship with various law enforcement agencies throughout the state, with members of law enforcement being current and former students. Graduates of our program have a reputation for performing a thorough and comprehensive forensic analysis, the results of which will stand up to scrutiny.

Other cases that students have worked on include credit card fraud and false imprisonment.

We understand the importance of earning industry certifications on the way to your degree or certificate. Students in our information security and digital forensics programs can earn the AccessData Certified Examiner (ACE) certification as well as the CyberSecurity Forensic Analyst (CSFA) certification. Both of these certifications cost our students nothing additional - the $750.00 testing fee for EdCC students to take the CSFA certification is waived.

In addition, many of our information security students earn the Security+ certification and finish off their program of study by learning how to be Ethical Hackers, practicing their craft conducting vulnerability assessments and penetration tests.

EdCC is the first EC-Council Authorized Training Center in the state, and our CIS 279 class includes the official Certified Ethical Hacker curriculum as well as certification test!

The Washington State Chapter of the High Technology Crime Investigation Association is a synergy between law enforcement and private industry.

As EdCC is home of the Washington State Chapter of the HTCIA, this partnership affords our students the opportunity to give presentations and talks to chapter members, as well as network with professionals who fight cybercrime on a daily basis.

The primary focus of the chapter is on leveraging our collective experiences for the betterment of our community and society as a whole. Members of law enforcement are able to gain insight into areas they would not otherwise be introduced to, and those from private industry can better understand the needs of law enforcement and what can be done to help them.

The Washington State HTCIA Chapter was born out of necessity. Computer related crime is becoming more complex, and the rate in which criminals are using technology is growing exponentially. Members of law enforcement and those from the private sector realize the need to work together to combat this crime, with a venue needed to meet and share knowledge. Thanks to EdCC, this has been made possible.
