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 for 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 comprehensive solutions 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 these programs is to provide learners with essential expert technical knowledge, competence, and research skills of the most important technical concepts of computer science and technology, cyber security, digital forensics and how they are applied in emerging areas such as device security and forensics.
B.Tech – M.Tech Computer Science and Engineering (Cyber Security)- 5 years integrated program is technical and practical in nature, uniquely embedded in the industry, and develops in-depth expertise of core technical topics within the area of computer science and engineering, cybersecurity and digital forensics such as programming concepts, engineering mathematics, mobile computing, embedded system, object-oriented programming, information security, secure programming, network security, penetration testing, malware analysis, IoT security, and forensics, critical infrastructure security, IT law and ethics, and technologies and tools that support application and service vulnerability detection, incident detection, data, and log retrieval and analysis. Courses also provide a sharper focus on forensics and cyber security through the elective subjects that are offered to the learners.
