Honours in Cyber Security Forensics

Computer Engineering | B.Tech (Comp)

Security is a critical issue in all the computing systems due to increasing number of security related breaches and incidents. The need of security professionals is ever increasing due to most of the services being made available online. With the information sharing and processing going from centralized to distributed to the entire internet and due to inherent vulnerabilities and weaknesses of hardware, software and protocols there are constant risks and threats on compromising of data and information.

This led to the need of Security in the form of controls, algorithms, procedures, policies and laws for securing information in the cyber space. This programme will focus on basics of security starting security goals, vulnerabilities, threats & controls to advanced topics like blockchain, cyber forensics and cyber laws etc. There will be topics on applied cryptography, cyber security, forensics, secure coding and vulnerability assessment & penetrative testing.

Objectives

The offered programme aims to give the understanding of:

  • Security goals, vulnerabilities, threats & controls.
  • Implementation of various control mechanisms related to various security services.
  • Understand cybercrime, its prevention and cyber laws.
  • Carrying out the various information security-related tasks such as Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Analysis.
  • Understand Digital forensics and Advanced Offensive Security techniques.

Learning Outcomes of the Honours’ Degree Programme:

At the successful completion of this programme, an Engineering Graduate will be able to:

  • Design and develop secure applications and systems.
  • Classify the types of cybercrimes their prevention and applicability of various cyber laws.
  • Implement penetration testing, vulnerability analysis and offensive security techniques for applications and systems.
  • Apply and use various digital forensic tools for cybercrime investigation.
