Computer Security & Digital Forensics

This programme teaches students the skills, methods and techniques used in Cybersecurity and Digital Forensics with the aim of providing the Irish computer industry with high-quality experts in this rapidly growing field. Cybersecurity is about securing computer systems against all types of unauthorised access. However, no matter how secure a computer system is, it will still have vulnerabilities. Digital Forensics is about detecting intruders, analysing what they have done to a computer system, tracking and identifying the intruder and creating a portfolio of evidence about the intruder’s activities to assist with a successful prosecution.
