ADJ537: Network Forensics and Incident Response

3 Credit(s)

The most dangerous time to realize that you are unprepared for an incident is when an incident occurs. Cyber disruption planning is essential for cybersecurity. When company and government networks and servers are breached, sensitive information could be lost or stolen. This course focuses on proactive and reactive digital security incident management. Students will learn how data moves throughout a network and where digital evidence is most likely found on network hardware and software. This course, which will be a blend of technical lab work and lecture, will prepare the student to respond to both corporate incident response scenarios and criminal cases involving email, instant messaging, file downloads, malicious code, etc. It will help students realize the importance of preparing for cyberattacks and incident security incidents as well as how to best respond to and recover from such incidents. Students will learn how to capture and analyze network traffic using Wireshank®, and Topdump® whether attacks are piracy, fraud or espionage.  Lab Fee
