CMIS 4104 - Computer Forensics♦


(5 cr.)
The increase of information shared online puts users, both individuals and larger entities, such as government agencies and corporations, at major risk of invasion of privacy and more serious crimes, such as child pornography, financial fraud, and personal identify theft. In this course, students learn basic approaches to analyzing information systems for evidence of illegal or inappropriate activities. They engage in a range of assignments focusing on the legal, ethical, and policy implications of various forensic techniques and monitoring practices. Students also learn to analyze forensic issues of real-world case studies to learn to choose appropriate techniques to minimize risk and combat breaches in security.
