What We Offer

Summary

In this unique program, students will be prepared for high demand IT roles such as computer/digital forensics analysts. Modern organizations increasingly depend on network and wireless-based communication, making them more vulnerable to cyberattacks. Consequently, organizations need IT roles that specialize in “incident response” in case of such attacks and subsequent “forensic analysis” of digital evidence. Our students will be able to analyze and apply computer forensics tools and techniques to solving issues related to malicious cyber incidents, apply network forensics tools and techniques to complex, network related cyber incidents and scenarios, and study methods for the acquisition and analysis of mobile devices in digital forensics investigations.

Credits earned in this certificate can be applied towards the master’s degree program in applied information technology.
