NDSCS announces new IT Forensics option
North Dakota State College of Science will soon begin offering an Information Technology (IT) Forensics option in the Information and Communications Technology department.
Kicking off this fall, the IT Forensics certificate option will provide an immediate basis for professionals employed in the high-tech industry to improve their ability to counter threats to information systems, thereby increasing their value to organizations that employ them and ensuring computer systems under their care are protected. This certificate, when paired with one of the Information and Communications Technology two-year degrees (such as an A.A.S. in Information Systems Administrator), will show versatility and provide advanced skills in IT Forensics.
This academic option will provide students with a broad overview of the field and introduce them to recent advances and current research problems; emphasize ethical, economic, social and legal impacts of IT forensics technologies; supply a foundation for the development of IT forensics; and provide students with the ability to counter threats to information systems.
All applicants must be high school graduates or equivalent. A satisfactory criminal background check will also be required prior to admission. Classes will be offered online and in Wahpeton. Upon successful completion of the required courses, students will be awarded a certificate in Information and Communications Technology with an emphasis in IT Forensics.
