This exciting course provides the student with the framework to understand cyber investigations and the necessary skills to identify an intruder’s footprints and to properly gather the necessary evidence to prosecute.

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.

Great for law enforcement. ⭐⭐⭐⭐   

This is my firm belief that this course would be highly beneficial to anyone with basic computer knowledge who is coming from a legal, or investigative background. This would, in my opinion, not be intended for anyone who has any sort of IT security knowledge as it's very basic.
