Reports of new computer viruses and hacking incidents are in the news every day and are affecting more and more people, organizations, and even governments. Our Digital Forensics and Cyber Security minor is designed to meet the growing need of preventing and detecting computer crimes in our digital age. Cyber security refers to securing computer systems and networks in order to prevent computer crimes while the field of digital forensics refers to the detection of computer crimes once they occur. Our minor is unique in combining in Criminal Justice and CIT (Computer Information Technology).
This minor will prepare you for a career in digital forensics and cyber security and is a great specialization to add to a CIT or Criminal Justice Major. Graduates can work in federal, state, and local government criminal justice agencies or in the IT departments of private companies.
