A Shelby County, Ala., law enforcement officer says National Computer Forensics Institute training helped him foil an attack on an insurance company’s 401(k) plan.
Clay Hammac, who works in the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, testified at field hearing organized by the House Financial Services Committee.
The committee looked at ways to help law enforcement protect private financial information.
NCFI support has been especially valuable, Hammac said, according to a written version of his testimony posted on the committee website.
Computer forensics training can help with the investigation of violent crimes, such as murder and kidnapping, but it is also vital in investigations of financial crimes, Hammac said.
