Become a Specialist in Cyber Investigations & Digital Forensics
As network breaches and digital crimes become more prevalent, the need for experienced cyber forensics investigators is rapidly growing. Applying investigatory techniques to digital crimes and attacks, digital forensics specialists collect, examine, analyse and document evidence from digital media for use in a court of law.
The Master of Cyber Security – Digital Forensics at UNSW Canberra will provide students with the knowledge, understanding, and skills to enable the recovery of admissible evidence from digital media. Students will understand the ethical and legal issues associated with cybercrime investigations and develop decision-making tools to assess, evaluate and analyse digital data.
The course will also develop knowledge and understanding of advanced forensic computing techniques and equip you with the skills to apply these successfully. Students will be expected to demonstrate both their theoretical and technical understanding through the completion of practical exercises in a contemporary simulated operational environment.
