This course aims to review concepts, theory, methodologies and techniques discussed in the digital forensics literature and in current practice. Case study exercises are used to provide you with a better understanding of computer forensic techniques used in practice. A particular emphasis of this course is the development of your critical thinking/awareness skills. This course addresses the specific issues of how to preserve the evidentiary nature of the data collected during the security process and other investigations. The greater reliance on information resources by organisations and the increased access to digital technologies has lead to an increase in reliance on digital evidence for the purposes of securing conviction of perpetrators in both business and criminal investigations.
