I want to be a Computer Forensic Hacking Investigator

Matthias | future forensic hacking investigator

When I grow up I want to be a Forensic Hacking Investigator. I want to make the world a better place safe from hackers. I want to help people protect their social security, credit card number, and private info, and I want to help protect kids from the bad things on the internet. Computer Forensic hackers help counter attacks from real hackers. For example, if there was to be a crime, or a secret attack, hacking investigators would try to get evidence or information to find out the crime.

Here is what I can do right now to help me reach my goal in middle school. I will study more in computer programing and "cmd." "Cmd" means command prompt. I will start to learn more in coding and the way devices work. I will also participate more in summer coding programs and start my own robotics club. In high school I will start learning more advanced coding skills, and taking some classes in law and enforcement. I will design my own "simple" high school games. In college I will actually try to hack a computer my professor would assign for me to hack. I shall also hack my android and apple devices. Which is called rooting for android and jailbreaking for Apple. Here are some skills or knowledge I would need to have in order to become a computer forensic hacker. I would need to have computer experience, investigative skills, law enforcement experience, and I might need to do a little military service. I would need to study each of these things for about 2-5 years at least. I also would need these certificates: CCE, CFCE, CISA, CISSP, EnCE and GSEC.

I would like to be a computer forensic hacking investigator as my career because I love coding, and messing with phones and computer software. I have even created my own mario game from "scratch" website, and thats why I want to be a computer forensic hacker when I grow up.
