The Course of CYBER FORENSICS AND INFORMATION SECURITY was introduced in the year of 2013 ,It has been instrumental in moulding the careers of its student and helping them to become world class professionals.The Department offers the M.Tech degree course with an intake of 18 students. The course is divided into four semesters, each of six months duration.
Computer forensics, is the application of scientifically proven methods to gather, process, interpret, and to use digital evidence to provide a conclusive description of cyber crime activities. Cyber forensics also includes the act of making digital data suitable for inclusion into a criminal investigation. Today cyber forensics is a term used in conjunction with law enforcement.
Computer forensics is the application of investigation and analysis techniques to gather and preserve evidence from a particular computing device in a way that is suitable for presentation in a court of law. The goal of computer forensics is to perform a structured investigation while maintaining a documented chain of evidence to find out exactly what happened on a computing device and who was responsible for it.
Forensic investigators typically follow a standard set of procedures: After physically isolating the device in question to make sure it cannot be accidentally contaminated, investigators make a digital copy of the device's storage media. Once the original media has been copied, it is locked in a safe or other secure facility to maintain its pristine condition. All investigation is done on the digital copy.
Investigators use a variety of techniques and proprietary software forensic applications to examine the copy, searching hidden folders and unallocated disk space for copies of deleted, encrypted, or damaged files. Any evidence found on the digital copy is carefully documented in a "finding report" and verified with the original in preparation for legal proceedings that involve discovery, depositions, or actual litigation.
Computer forensics has become its own area of scientific expertise, with accompanying coursework and certification.
This program offers post graduates an opportunity to develop knowledge and skills that can help them pursue careers in a variety of entry-level web design positions.
