Why study cyber security and digital forensics?
Cybercrime is on the increase and set to keep growing as technology becomes more widespread.
High-level security breaches have led government, public services and corporations to dedicate more resources to computer security.
Meanwhile, digital forensics is providing a wealth of material for law enforcement for the police and businesses.
This has led the UK government to highlight an urgent need for skilled graduates in forensic computing.
