About School of Cyber Security & Digital Forensics

Home > About School of Cyber Security & Digital Forensics
Over the past years, computer technology has forced everyone to change the way they do things. Even criminals have adapted to the information age. The threats of cyber-attacks are increasingly apparent to individuals and organizations across the globe. From hacking to phishing, scamming to grooming, and botnets to cyber-terrorism, the variety and ingenuity of exploits appear to expand constantly.

The unprecedented incidence of crimes in the information and communication systems, made a compulsion to fill up the vacuum created due to the dearth of experts. This could be overcome by creating experts in the field of Cyber Security and Digital Forensics. Chances of getting victimized accidentally are more common in the current era. To sensitize the people and to protect oneself from landing in such a scenario, there is a need of specialized academic programs which will ultimately culminate in the expertise. This academia imparts overall security measures required for the protection through various misadventures with the electronic systems. It would also provide a comprehensive solution for preventive care and also for the post-traumatic measures to be taken. It also addresses system vulnerabilities and the preventative measures that may counter cyber-attacks, including steps to repair systems weaknesses, prevent repeat occurrences, and collecting and examining digital evidence using a variety of digital and mobile forensics tools and technology.

The aim of the School of Cyber Security and Digital Forensics is to provide learners with essential expert technical knowledge, competence, and research skills of the most important technical concepts of cybersecurity and how they are applied in emerging areas such as device security and forensics.

To fulfill the above object, the School of Cyber Security and Digital Forensics is running the following courses,
  1. M. Tech. Cyber Security and Digital Forensics – 2 Years (4 Semesters) Full Time Course.
  2. M. Sc. Digital Forensics and Information Security - 2 Years (4 Semesters) Full Time Course.
  3. M. Sc. Cyber Security - 2 Years (4 Semesters) Full Time Course.
  4. P. G Diploma in Web and Mobile Security - 1 Year (2 Semesters) Full-Time Course.
  5. P. G Diploma in Malware Analysis and Reverse Engineering - 1 Year (2 Semesters) Full Time Course.
