So we've reached the end of the course.
00:03
This is actually an extra module
00:06
that we decided to add into this course,
00:09
and this is a non opportunity for me
00:14
to provide you with
00:16
some
00:17
course, wrap up the next steps
00:19
again. Testimony
00:21
is a scary thing.
00:23
It doesn't have to be a scary thing, though.
00:27
It doesn't have to be something that you dread or fear.
00:31
It can be something you truly
00:35
appreciate and understand and respect
00:38
and enjoy.
00:41
If
00:42
you follow some of the steps in some of the things outlined in this course,
00:47
there are many things and many opportunities and many
00:51
ways to continue your worrying
00:55
the first way you could continue your learning is by joining something like Toastmasters learning to be a better public speaker,
01:03
learning to articulate yourself
01:06
better
01:07
because
01:08
the more and better that you can articulate yourself, the more practice you get
01:15
speaking in public,
01:18
the less likely you are to use
01:19
words like, Um
01:22
uh, like
01:25
so
01:26
the things
01:27
that will
01:30
really hamper
01:32
your
01:33
public. Speaking in your testimony,
01:37
there are plenty of courses in how to be an expert witness that are out there
01:42
how to be an expert testifier that we're going to talk about a lot of the same things in this course.
01:49
But
01:49
really, the next steps
01:53
and the best thing you could do
01:55
is just continue toe learn,
01:57
continue to study
01:59
everything you can on forensics,
02:01
everything you can on
02:05
the different technologies that you're using. The more you become an expert in your field, the better you're gonna be
02:12
testifying to and explaining these things
02:16
to
02:17
people when you have to testify.
02:22
Another way to practice If you've got kids or you've gotten, you know, someone under the age of about 10
02:29
sit and try to explain something to them,
02:31
something technical to them.
02:35
Getting that experience in that practice of having to explain something to somebody who
02:40
isn't gonna understand. A lot of the technical jargon
02:44
is very helpful and can provide a lot of really good
02:50
feedback to you on what you need to do to prepare and be better.
02:55
I encourage you to look at some of the materials that we've added for the resource is section of this course.
03:04
There's some really good articles about how to better be an expert testimony, expert testifier
03:09
some bookings, book suggestions,
03:13
some things that are really great that are really out there that can help you. And some of them are gonna be books you've probably read before. But going back and re reading them is helpful.
03:24
There are a lot of really great courses here on cyber ery that you could take
03:29
that will help strengthen your ability to be a good expert. Testify.
03:37
I have been in this industry for about 13 years now, and testifying was not something that I got to do until I was seven or eight years into into my career.
03:50
And honestly, it was
03:52
very nerve wracking the first time.
03:53
But it's one of those things that with practice you get a little bit better
03:59
and a little bit better and a little bit better.
04:02
And it's one of those things that
04:04
if you're confident and you know what you're talking about and you know the materials and you follow Ah, lot of the steps that we've laid out in this course you will do fantastic. And I'm sure you will find satisfaction in being an expert test. Um, fire.
04:21
It's a really prestigious thing to get to dio.
04:25
It is the pinnacle off, uh, experts career is actually getting to testify.
04:31
