Domain Track Title : Cybersecurity & Digital Forensics

Track Total Credits ( T-P-P)(6-6-8)

Courses Division( list all divisions):

  1. Security Risk Assessment (Ethical Hacking) (2-2-0)
  2. Proactive Defence and Countermeasures          (1-1-2)
  3. Incident Response and Management          (2-2-0)

  5. Project           (0-0-4)

Domain Objectives:

  • This domain focusses on two aspects of Cyber Security: analysis and assessment of risk plus how to minimize it, and, how to extract and use digital information from a wide range of systems and devices.
  • The domain is structured so that all students cover the same introductory material, but then choose to specialize in either Cyber Security or Digital Forensics.
  • Domain is used to secure important data from enemies.
  • It works as a safeguard of your computer from blackmail by the people who want to exploit the vulnerability.
  • Using domain, a company or organization can find out security vulnerability and risks.
  • The purpose of this domain is to evaluate the security of and identify vulnerabilities in target systems, networks or system infrastructure.
  • The domain entails finding and then attempting to exploit vulnerabilities to determine whether unauthorized access or other malicious activities are possible.

Domain Learning Outcomes:

  • The domain will cover basic digital forensics and network security, and also cover computer system tools and the Linux/UNIX operating system which are highly essential in the cyber world.
  • Able to deal with digital evidence in a professional manner (that includes adhering to appropriate legal guidelines).
  • It will then follow either the Cyber Security or Digital Forensics pathway within the course (though each leads to the same-named degree: the pathways are simply opportunities to specialize within the field).
  • In addition, all students will take a Research Methods module and complete a project module to devote them to the world of research for their future edifice and expertise.
  • Candidates after the completion of the domain have lucrative openings & scopes in the emerging areas surrounding research & development in academics, nuclear power plants, corporates, Govt. organization like railway, banking & also in national as well as International grounds with good designations as Chief Information Security Officer, Forensic Computer Analyst, Information Security Analyst, Digital Forensics Investigator, Digital Forensics specialist, Homeland Security Professional and many more.
