Overview

B.Sc Data Science, Cyber Forensics

In the future, Data Science will be a crucial component in Cyber Forensics. Data scientists help companies to become more efficient and productive by using technology to drive their business decisions forward. A course that combines the study of computer technology and digital security would be beneficial to any student planning on entering into the workforce after graduating from college because it allows them to learn more about an ever-growing field while gaining valuable experience along the way. Data scientists add value to any company by identifying emerging trends within the organisation to make better decisions in the present. Additionally, their analytical capabilities help them find patterns that can be modelled and used to predict whether the company’s vision will be met in the future. Cyber Forensics involves collecting, investigating, and analysing data from a computer system. This information can then be presented as proof in court, in the event of cybercrime, and other cybersecurity incidents. Private industries where cyber forensic experts are in demand include defence, financial services, computing, healthcare, network security, and information technology.

Highlights

This programme offers knowledge of cyber law, investigation, analysis of digital data and how various security measures can be implemented exclusive to hacking. After completion of the course the students will be able to learn investigation tools and techniques, analysis of data to identify evidence, technical aspects & legal aspects related to cyber crime.
