CSA 101 - Cybercrime and Electronic Evidence

(3 credits)
Digital Forensics and electronic evidence cannot be divorced from the law, whether civil or criminal. A digital forensic examiner needs knowledge of the law to effectively perform his or her job. Moreover, the generation of electronic evidence in all types of crime continues to increase at an exponential rate. This course balances technology and law as it enters the world of cybercrime by exploring what cybercrime is; how it is investigated; and the regulatory and legal framework surrounding the collection and use of electronic evidence. Students are introduced to the technology involved in the commission and investigation of cybercrimes. Students explore the technical and legal challenges in searching for, extracting, and preserving electronic evidence, while simultaneously looking at the legal implications of crimes that are committed in the realms of cyberspace. In addition to Cyber Security Administration, this course addresses implications that are crucial for a variety of fields and disciplines, including computer science, criminal justice, business, health care, and pre-law.
