Digital Forensics and Cyber Analysis- George Mason University

Digital Forensics and Cyber Analysis is a key component in criminal, civil, intelligence, and counter-terrorism matters. In the last several years, with a proliferation of digital storage, transmission, and processing of sensitive information there has been an increase in the aberrant use of computers. This aberrant behavior includes but is not limited to: economic espionage, child exploitation, cybercrime, fraud, terrorism, and identity theft. In response to this, Digital Forensics and Cyber Analysis has become an important profession serving both public and private sectors.

Mission: George Mason University’s Computer Forensics Program provides the state of the art in advanced digital forensics and incident response education. Thorough grounding in methods and techniques prepares students for careers in this multi-faceted and interdisciplinary field spanning the commercial, industrial, law enforcement, and defense arenas. Mason’s graduate degree program requires students to develop a theoretical as well as a practical understanding of the principles of computer forensics enabling them to keep pace with an ever changing digital world, becoming leaders in developing new forensic capabilities.
