The Best Computer Forensics Investigation Blogs for 2015

A link to for IT career planningWe follow a lot of blogs here at Skillset. A lot!

With more than three hundred skill assessment tests across several major industry certifications (and growing!), it’s important to stay on our game. Specifically, it’s important because we want to help you stay on your game too.

But what, truly, are the best publications, resources, and blogs to follow in a particular subject area? Not a major category like Project Management, but a specific skillset like computer forensics investigation.

That’s a tough question, so we set out to answer it. We want to start keeping a running count of all the best blogs that tackle specific skills professionals might need to study for their next certification exam—or even simply to make sure you’re not lagging behind the industry for your own personal benefit.

But we’ll need your help. We generally know what the best blogs might be, but which ones do people respond to the best? Only you can tell us that.

So we’re asking. Below we’ve listed the five best blogs that cover computer forensics investigation and the reasons why we like them. Vote for your favorite in our poll at the bottom of this post. We’ll recap the results in a post later this month.

A bit of transparency: Blogs that post frequently or generally provide objective (non-product) information rank high on our list. So your favorite blogger who posts once a year may not have made the cut (even if they’re great!).
