M.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering
(Cyber Forensics and Information Security)


The Master of Technology program in Computer science with specialization in  Cyber Forensics and Information Security at College of Engineering Kallooppara combines the disciplines of technology, business, organizational behavior, and law. As new technological innovations continue to proliferate in our society, so do the opportunities for technology exploitation. In this program,students learn techniques used to detect, respond to, and prevent network intrusions. They also master broader concepts such as the responsible use of resources, the appropriate management of risks, and the alignment of information technology with the organization. Converting them to a computer investigating specialist is the main objective of this program.
Cyber forensics, also called computer forensics or digital forensics, is the process of extracting information and data from computers to serve as digital evidence - for civil purposes or, in many cases, to prove and legally prosecute cyber crime. With technology changing and evolving on a daily basis, cyber forensic professionals must continually keep pace and educate themselves on the new techniques to collect this data. They are tasked with being an expert in forensic techniques and procedures, standards of practice, and legal and ethical principles that will assure the accuracy, completeness and reliability of the digital evidence.
The goal of computer forensics is to examine digital media in a forensically sound manner with the aim of identifying, preserving, recovering, analyzing and presenting facts and opinions about the information.
Although it is most often associated with the investigation of a wide variety of computer crime, computer forensics may also be used in civil proceedings. The discipline involves similar techniques and principles to data recovery, but with additional guidelines and practices designed to create a legal audit trail.
Evidence from computer forensics investigations is usually subjected to the same guidelines and practices of other digital evidence. It has been used in a number of high-profile cases and is becoming widely accepted as reliable within the court systems of various countries.
Government and law enforcement agencies need skilled professionals who can join the fight against cyber crime, cyber terrorism, identity theft, and the exploitation of minors. Companies and other private sector organizations need skilled professionals with both business acumen and technology skills for recognizing and mitigating vulnerabilities. So there is a huge need of skilled manpower in this area.
