Certificate in Digital Forensics

Program Details

The undergraduate certificate in Digital Forensics examines various forensics models to identify, preserve, collect, analyze, prepare, and present evidence for prosecuting cybercrime. The window of opportunity for collecting evidence can be a few seconds or minutes depending on the sophistication of the perpetrator, and this program teaches the precise digital forensic measures needed to respond to security incidents to prevent loss or corruption of sensitive proprietary information.

This certificate program is intended for undergraduate students who seek to heighten their knowledge of digital forensics without committing to an academic degree program.
