ITS 367 Digital Forensics

The course analyzes the protocols involved in cybersecurity investigations, and provides a thorough grounding in the principles required to assume the role of a cybersecurity investigator and to be familiar with the evidentiary concepts surrounding the legal proceedings of digital evidence. The course will focus on both hands-on digital forensic experience using open-source digital forensics tools and case law that covers electronic discovery, privacy, and cybersecurity considerations. In this course, the student not only gains experience using digital forensics tools but also will learn about legal precedents that discusses the “why” behind the “how”.
