Introduction to Cybersecurity Investigations
MCC’s Cybersecurity program incorporates hands-on training, Virtual Reality, Comp TIA certifications and expert instruction, preparing grads for a growing, high-demand field.
The most fundamental change in corporate security and law enforcement in recent years is the increase in cybercrime, which is causing significant financial losses in the U.S. The number of crimes involving electronic data has been skyrocketing as our dependence on digital devices in our lives increases. Only trained digital forensics experts can search computers and computer devices for electronic evidence, perform digital investigations, recover lost data, track cyber intrusions and provide technical expertise in a way that preserves the integrity of the original digital material. A degree in Cybersecurity Investigations will place students into a pool of sought-after professionals in the digital forensics world and will provide graduates with a foundation in digital investigations allowing them to transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
Normal investigation techniques cannot detect or extract bits of digital information that may remain after deletion. Cyber forensics examines files that are hidden, deleted or overwritten; recovers file fragments and other obfuscated data; detects cyber intrusions and embedded malicious code, and compiles evidence relating to the disclosure of personal and financial information.
