The threat of cyber security attacks is increasingly apparent to individuals and organizations across the globe. From hacking to phishing, scamming to grooming, and botnets to cyber-terrorism, the variety and ingenuity of exploits appear to expand constantly.
In this context, this program addresses system vulnerabilities and preventive measures that may counter cyber-attacks, including steps to repair systems weaknesses, prevent repeat occurrences and collecting & examining digital evidence using a variety of digital and mobile forensics tools. It also helps in developing a detailed understanding of comprehensive cyber risk management practices for ensuring overall security.
CFIS program in Cyber Forensics and Information Security (CFIS) is designed to prepare students and working professionals for an exciting and rewarding career in cyber security, both in government and in private business. The program equips individuals with the knowledge necessary for the Center of Education in Digital Forensics (COEDF) certification.
Students are trained utilizing professional applications in computer and mobile forensics, and provided knowledge and expertise in network security, ethical hacking and privacy. This training occurs in one of our new on-campus information security labs.
The ISDF program isn’t only intended for computer and information sciences majors, but also for students majoring in Criminal Justice, Business, Healthcare and Accounting.
The curriculum is designed to meet the growing needs of Information Security and Cyber Forensics professionals in the IT Industry, Corporate, Finance Sectors, Law Enforcement Agencies and other Government Agencies.
