This exciting course provides the student with the framework to understand cybersecurity risk and the necessary skills to identify an intruder’s footprints and to properly gather the necessary evidence to prosecute. We will explore how hackers target finance professionals and how to spot their attacks.

Many of today’s top tools of the forensic trade will be explored and presented to the student. The need for businesses to become more efficient and integrated with one another, as well as the home user, has given way to a new type of criminal, the “cyber-criminal.” It is no longer a matter of “will your organization be comprised (hacked)?” but, rather, “when?” Today’s battles between corporations, governments, and countries are no longer fought only in the typical arenas of boardrooms or battlefields using physical force. Now the battlefield starts in the technical realm, which ties into almost every facet of modern day life. If you or your organization requires the knowledge or skills to identify, track, and prosecute the cybercriminal, then this is the course for you.
