This paper follows an initial review conducted as part of an EU-funded Erasmus+ project under the programme of Capacity Building in Higher Education. The original paper focused on providing the state of the art in undergraduate computer forensic programmes [22]. This work is part of a study towards the EU funded Pathway in Forensic Computing (FORC) project. FORC aims to address the challenges in information society development concerned Cyber Security and privacy in a world oriented towards e-technologies. The project meets the regional needs of the Middle East area by responding to the current and emerging cyber security threats by educating the IT and Legal professionals in the field of e-crime, thus supporting development of e-based economics, life and society in partner countries. The work is funded under project reference number 574063-EPP-1-2016-1-IT-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP, Grant Agreement 2016 - 2556 / 001 - 001. In this paper we focus on the second work package of the project (WP-2) aiming to `establish a forensic computing pathway' and the first task for this work package aiming at `defining pathway objectives, learning outcomes, and career perspective'. In this second paper we focus more on postgraduate programmes, online provision, and career pathways. We also consider the availability of programmes in the US, while emphasis is given more on digital forensic education.
