Computer Science and Technology [Cyber Security & Forensics]

Program Overview

B. Tech in Cyber Security and Forensic imparts knowledge about the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access.
Cyber forensics is a branch of digital forensic science pertaining to legal evidence found in cyberspace and digital storage media.

This program addresses the underlying need for cyber experts as the country is heading towards an internet explosion mostly fueled by e-commerce, e-banking, e-governance and social media.

The program trains students to maintain a digital document chain for any structured investigation to find out exactly what happened on a computing device and who was responsible for it.

Specialised programme in Cyber Security and Forensic within B. Tech Computer Science and Technology imparts knowledge about the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. Cyber forensics is a branch of digital forensic science pertaining to legal evidence found in cyberspace and digital storage media. The programme addresses the underlying need of developing cyber security experts by providing specialized courses such ascyber security and data forensics, IT application security, Network security, information security, audit etc.

The graduates of this course understand the process of digital document chain for any structured investigation to find out exactly what happened on a computing device and who was responsible for it.

Why Cybersecurity and Forensic

Cybersecurity is important because it encompasses everything that pertains to protecting our sensitive data, personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI), personal information, intellectual property, data, and governmental and industry information systems from theft and damage attempted by criminals and adversaries.

Cybersecurity risk is increasing, driven by global connectivity and usage of cloud services, like Amazon Web Services, to store sensitive data and personal information. Widespread poor configuration of cloud services paired with increasingly sophisticated cyber criminals means the risk that your organization suffers from a successful cyber attack or data breach is on the rise.

As everything is going digital Cyber Security is required in every industry, including healthcare, finance, retail and manufacturing.
