Center for Computer Forensics Obtains Michigan Private Investigator License

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Computer Forensics (CCF), a Michigan-based electronic litigation support and evidence gathering firm, announced today that it has received a PI License from the state of Michigan following the recently passed Michigan House Bill 5274, which requires computer forensic vendors to hold an active private investigators license. The law passed on May 28, 2008 and went into effect immediately.

Governor Jennifer Granholm signed Michigan 2007 House Bill 5274 on May 28, 2008 in order to revise and update the definition of private investigator and investigation business requiring a state license, more explicitly describing the various activities that come under these terms. The computer forensics field fell under these new terms.

"CCF learned of the pending legislation several months ago, so we obtained the license to ensure our clients had one less thing to thing to worry about in choosing their vendor," remarked Patrick Ahern, President of CCF. "This is a dynamic time for our field and the rules are constantly changing at the state level, as well as federally. Obtaining the PI license is just another example of our vigilance to stay ahead of constantly changing market conditions."

The Center for Computer Forensics has been in business and a part of the Michigan market for eleven years and has played a significant role within the development of the computer forensics field.
