Title Introduction to computer forensics and investigations
Description
  • <p>Computer forensics is an exciting area, often glamorised (and its capabilities exaggerated) in films and television shows like <i>CSI</i>, <i>NCIS</i> and <i>Spooks</i>. You may have heard the area described using slightly different words, each of which may bring to mind different activities.</p><div class="&#10; oucontent-activity&#10; oucontent-s-heavybox1 oucontent-s-box "><div class="oucontent-outer-box"><h3 class="oucontent-h3 oucontent-heading oucontent-nonumber"><span lang="EN-GB" xml:lang="EN-GB">Activity&#xA0;1</span></h3><div class="oucontent-inner-box"><div class="oucontent-saq-question"><p>Write down all the topics that you can think of that might be encompassed by the term &#x2018;computer forensics and investigations’.</p></div> <div class="oucontent-saq-discussion"><h4 class="oucontent-h4">Discussion</h4><p>Here are some of the names we thought of; your list should include at least some of these:</p><ul class="oucontent-bulleted"><li>computer forensics</li><li>forensic computing</li><li>forensic science</li><li>digital forensics</li><li>network forensics</li><li>ICT forensics</li><li>forensic investigations</li><li>digital investigations</li><li>business continuity</li><li>incident response</li><li>computer policing</li><li>high-tech crime investigation</li><li>computer security</li><li>incident management.</li></ul></div></div></div></div><p>Whether you have come from an area where you have acquired knowledge of &#x2018;the nuts and bolts’ of how computers operate (but have had very little experience of investigations or legal aspects), or come from a management, legal, or investigatory background (but have little practical knowledge of the insides of computers and software) then this free course, <i>Introduction to computer forensics and investigations</i>, is for you. Part of the interest and excitement of the area of digital investigations is that it is multi-disciplinary and there are always new things to learn.
