Digital Forensics

  • 7.5 credits

In our increasingly digitized society, almost every action performed in our daily activities usually involves some sort of computer system or its derivatives. Social activities, economic activities, government activities, health-services and various other sectors of our daily lives are all embracing an electronic facet which implies the use of computer systems. Personal computers, tablets, mobile phones, social media and e-commerce – among a host of other computer systems or applications – lay testament to this.

With this omnipresence of computer systems in our daily lives, we are slowly, but surely, becoming more prone to electronic attacks through these systems that would otherwise automate tasks or make life easier for us. Through Digital Forensics, we attempt to analyze these varying computer systems in order to track and trace criminals through the traces left within the systems, in order to extract relevant evidence and present it to a court of law, eventually bringing the said criminals to justice.
