Identity theft, insider trading, information security breaches, cyber attacks, industrial espionage, financial fraud and terrorism leave behind digital “fingerprints” in the form of electronic data, whether from computers, networks, the cloud, GPS systems or smartphones. Digital forensics and security analytics helps understand how to follow these “fingerprints” to investigate incidents and track activities in the electronic domain. This typically comes into play after a security incident, to determine the who, what, where, when and why. Cyber incidents have huge economic consequences. Organizations rely on digital forensics to detect incidents and respond to them.
The department of Information Security & Digital Forensics has three programs, a B.S. degree in Digital Forensics, an MBA with a concentration in Cyber Security, and a Graduate Certificate in Information Security.
