This module provides a comprehensive foundation in the discipline of forensic computing. Students acquire the knowledge, understanding and practical experience that will enable them to find and recover admissible digital evidence from PC based computers and the skills that will permit them competently to present such evidence in a Court of Law.
The fundamentals of forensic computing are detailed to a degree that allows students to understand how commercial forensic tools work and enables them to extract digital evidence directly from binary images, beneath the level at which the tools operate.
For students studying this continuing professional development module, there is an associated coursework module which is taken as part of the MSc/PGDip/PGCert programme.
