The graduate certificate in Digital Forensics teaches you the innovative tools and leading industry methods for collecting and scientifically analyzing digital devices and data associated with cybercrime. You’ll examine the requirements for supporting legal proceedings in criminal and civil forensics, rules for presenting evidence, and how to maintain a chain of custody for evidence integrity.
