We recently had a family lose their entire house to a fire. The fire started in the garage while the family’s two teen boys were home alone playing video games in the basement. Luckily, a neighbor driving by saw the fire and was able to help the boys escape from the house on time. Unfortunately, the family lost everything in the fire, including all of their photos which were stored on their home computer. An employee at Kroll Ontrack lived nearby and reached out to offer help.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
