Forensic Investigation Digital Forensics and Cybersecurity

The increasing pervasiveness and convenience of computers make them vital to our everyday lives. Computers are the backbone of our infrastructure, and anyone with malicious intent can cause irreparable harm by crippling these systems. Training in computer forensics is extremely important in order to understand how to handle the delicate information in storage devices. Technical people may think they know how to extract data; however, they may inadvertently alter or delete important information. Computer forensics practitioners know how to handle information extraction, as well as how to identify information that is useful in a legal case and how to explain and present it in court.
