3.0 Credit(s)
This introductory course is designed to expose students to the various aspects of the Digital Forensics discipline —the science of finding information relevant to the investigation of a committed cybercrime. More than 90% of all information humans create and consume exists in digital form and never leaves the digital domain and Digital Forensics investigation requires collecting, processing, and analyzing a lot of digital information saved on a multitude of digital devices. The course covers topics related to criminal justice, computer technology, and the process of criminal investigation, focusing on analyzing security breaches and finding Electronic Evidence stored on computers and networks. In this course students will learn fundamental concepts of Digital Forensic including its technical side (computers, data, Internet, Web, mobile technologies, etc.) and its legal and regulatory side,
bringing together digital technologies, law, and cybercrime investigation techniques. Thorough knowledge of computers is not necessary but yearning to understand computing and networking technology on the conceptual level is desirable.
