Message from the Global Chairman, Dr. (Prof) Rama Subramaniam The 3rd year anniversary celebration of this Institute is a milestone in the quest for excellence amongst forensic professionals, across the globe. The fact that white collar and technology crimes are overtaking more traditional crimes in terms of damage done, is well recognized. This also warrants new approaches, frameworks, training and competencies to fight against white collar and technology crimes. There is a growing demand for forensic professionals who are skilled not only in established forensic practices but are also competent to handle the emerging nuances in contemporary crime patterns. As Global chairman of IICFIP, I appeal to all forensics professionals globally to make this profession relevant in the context of rapid changes in crime patterns, by joining us in our 3rd anniversary celebrations and participate in our annual Global Conference-2015 in Dar-es- Salaam, Tanzania. Your active participation will strengthen the spirit of forensic professionalism and support IICFIP in its battle against new forms of crimes that is hindering progress of individuals, businesses and community at large. 2.

The partner university (ies) that already have forensic science or cyber security and digital forensics programmes are assisted in improving and enriching them in line with the IICFIP’s professional standards so that the graduates are admitted as professional members immediately they graduate. The Institute mostly recognize relevant or approved masters degrees as equivalent to the CFIP.

This program has 98 students from Cameroon, Nigeria, Lesotho, South Sudan and Kenya. Any university that partners with us can run this programme with the IICFIP’s Faculty support. Negotiations are in the process to partner with universities in Kenya, USA, Botswana, Ghana and Switzerland just but to mention a few.

Those aspiring to become CFIP (Certified Forensic Investigation Professional) or DFIP (Digital Forensics Investigation Professional) or CACC (Certified Anti-Corruption Consultant) must be having relevant advanced diplomas or degrees plus three (3) years relevant work experience.

The Global Chair of the IICFIP is Prof. Rama Subramaniam from UAE and the Continental Director for Africa is FCFIP Linus Enobi Akepe of Cameroon. Success or Failure of Investigations Investigations succeed or fail depending on the quality of the investigative team. The fallacy is that lawyers or accountants are best suited for investigation assignments. An effective forensic investigator or auditor must have adequate mix of skills as portrayed by the course requirements of a CFIP. One must understand law as applies to investigations, accounting, digital forensics, criminal investigation procedures, auditing, have good understanding of fraud and corruption typologies and causation theories, understand criminology and psychology and investigative accounting added to natural talents. Lack of all round trained investigators is the cause of cases being thrown out of courts for inadequacy of evidence and other technical reasons. Our members in various parts of the globe are well equipped to carry out effective forensic investigations in business organizations, governments and other situations requiring forensic investigation skills. The Institute caters for the networking of all investigation professionals. The Business of the IICFIP IICFIP is not just in the business of fraud examination but forensic investigation in the widest sense. We train professionals to become all rounded experts in forensic investigation such that they are able to carry out fraud examination, forensic accounting, medical investigations, financial investigations, digital forensics, criminal investigations and do fraud/corruption control.
