Digital Forensics and Cybercrime Analysis
The course will provide the knowledge of the latest cyber security principles, practices, tools and techniques, taught by a team of specialist staff in purpose-built cyber security laboratories. Graduates will be cyber-operators, able to use information as a defensive or offensive weapon. Today, cyber-operators are required to have an enriched background, drawing elements of practical experience from fields as diverse as sociology, psychology, network security, computer science, software engineering, reverse engineering, and - of course - the law. We have a diverse number of placements with companies from the security industry, high tech crime units and government organisations.
Modules include: Computer security - low level; cyber operations; malware analysis and reverse engineering; research methods; operating systems security; digital forensics and incidence response.
Assessment methods include assignments, presentations, demonstrations, written reports, end of module examinations, and oral viva.
