Digital & Cyber Forensic Science has played a vital role in both law enforcement investigations and corporate cyber security. In this “golden age of evidence,” digital forensics, especially computer forensics, is playing a vital role in solving a wide range of cases: homicide, forgery, pornography, and much more Computer forensics is an evolving field that is always moving to match the changes in devices and how they are used for identifying, preserving, analyzing, and recovering data from computers and various digital media storage. With increasing cybercrime, computer forensics has now become crucial for public safety, national security, and law enforcement. Tracking the digital activities of potential criminals can help investigators find digitally stored information about their criminal activity. Computer forensics is not only capable of uncovering deliberate criminal intent but can also prevent future cybercrimes.
Digital & Cyber Forensic Science is a 3-year graduate course that involves the application of scientific knowledge for the investigation of crimes. Professionals in this discipline apply their knowledge of science to analyze the evidence found at a crime scene. An analysis could involve anything from an object at the crime scene, to soil, blood stains, saliva, body fluids, bones, fingerprints, DNA profiling, recovering data from computers, researching new techniques/ technology, etc.
