Course Description

Computing - Security & Forensics



The MSc in Computing (Security & Forensics) programme focuses on producing computing graduates that will possess the knowledge, skills, and experience to conduct complex, data-intensive forensics examinations involving multiple operating systems, file types, cloud, and mobile operating systems.

Digital forensics, also known as computer and network forensics is the application of science to the identification, collection, examination, and analysis of data while preserving the integrity of the information and maintaining a strict chain of custody for the data. Every organisation and user needs to have the capability to perform digital forensics. Without such a capability, organisations and users will have difficulty determining what events have occurred within their systems, networks and mobile devices, such as the exposure of protected, sensitive data. Digital forensics involves the recovery of digital evidence from a device under forensically sound conditions using accepted methods. Mobile device forensics is an evolving speciality in the field of digital forensics and the programme has a particular focus in this area as the use of mobile devices including phones, tablets, etc is becoming so prevalent and widespread.
