About this Program

Computer forensics is the process of methodically examining computer media for evidence, which includes the collection, preservation, analysis and presentation of computer-related evidence. This degree prepares students for employment in computer science, information assurance, computer incident investigation, cyberspace ethics and computer law. Graduates may work in a variety of computer technology fields to support organizations that must protect their proprietary interests or investigate computer activities. They may also assist their employers with civil litigations. Graduates may also assist law enforcement agencies to combat cyber-terrorism and other crimes. Computer evidence may be relevant in the areas of human resources, employment proceedings, civil disputes and criminal cases as well.

Digital evidence collection and processing has changed dramatically from when an analyst could always rely on a working physical drive. The cloud being used in the U.S. might actually be housed outside the jurisdiction of the investigating law enforcement agency. This degree provides students with skills needed by today's analyst in order to face the new challenges in the cyber security field.
