It is intended to consider the current position of forensic computing in the light of its recent history and the current economic climate, with the object of attempting to determine who will be the practitioners of the future and what they will be doing.

Historically a lot of analysts were ‘pressganged’ Law Enforcement officers but now the field is filling with people who have studied the subject before entering the profession.

It may be argued that forensic computing is a synthesis of technology, law and investigation, not to mention psychology. Who will fit the bill to become a successful analyst for Law Enforcement purposes?
