Canterbury Christ Church University, BSc (Hons) Computer Forensics and Security (formerly titled BSc (Hons) Forensic Computing)
Computer Forensics and Security are interesting, dynamic and growing areas of Computing. As cybercrime continues to rise, so too does the need for computing professionals to lead the fight against it. Computer Security involves (amongst other things) protecting computer systems from malicious attacks, human error, and exploitation of vulnerabilities. This includes utilising an ethical hacking approach to highlight security vulnerabilities so that they can be fixed or mitigated. Computer Forensics involves recovering intelligence and evidence from digital devices for the purposes of remediation, litigation and/or prosecution. The aim of the Computer Forensics and Security programme is to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to enter these exciting areas of Computing.
