This is an intermediate and technical course that focuses on conducting cybercrime investigations. Students work in a multi-disciplinary team and learn how to collect and preserve evidence from technological and Internet-based sources. Students learn proven methods of conducting cybercrime investigations through hands-on exercises, scenario-based learning/training and lectures. Because cyber threats do not work in isolation, students learn the importance of working with other agencies (Federal, Provincial, Municipal and International) and the private sector in an effort to prevent and stop these crimes.
