Digital Forensics

The Digital Forensics and Information Assurance program will be the best place for student success in data assurance and data analysis. Our goal is to bring the latest technology and a vendor neutral education where we break away from traditional Information Technology ( IT ) training methods. We encourage and require independent thinking and problem solving to explore the scientific approach that is the basis of reliable investigations. Our graduates will be the best prepared to enter the workforce where inculpatory and exculpatory (Inculpatory evidence is evidence that shows, or tends to show, a person’s involvement in an act, or evidence that can establish guilt. Exculpatory evidence is evidence favorable to the defendant in a criminal trial that exonerates or tends to exonerate the defendant of guilt.) data analyses will be weighed equally without prejudice.
