As we adapt to the digital revolution, an increasing number of cases, both civil and high-profile, rely on data identification, recovery, and preservation of digital evidence. We also rely on computer forensics for the prevention and prosecution of criminal activity, such as child pornography, financial fraud, and personal identify theft.
In this course, students learn procedures and tools for collecting and investigating evidence from illegal or inappropriate computer use. They also engage in a range of assignments and activities focusing on the legal, ethical, and policy implications of various forensic techniques and monitoring practices.
