Security: Digital Forensics    NEW!

Have you been charged with finding abuse or even criminal activities on your companies' IT systems? Computer abuse and crime is here to stay. Digital Forensics deals with the recovery and investigation of information from digital devices like computers, cell phones, and more. The rate of fraud in recent years requires increasing IT duties as a very important part of the overall security picture. This class introduces the basic concepts and procedures as well as the “how-to” skills of forensics using hands on exercises.

In this course we will investigate Windows OS computers though the lessons learned can easily be applied to Unix, Linux or Mac OS X. Recommended as the 3rd course in the Information Security Certificate.
