Why Choose the Digital Forensics/Cybersecurity (DFOR) Minor?

The minor in Digital Forensics/Cybersecurity was created to increase the options available for Ferris State University students seeking to supplement their education in the field of security. By having a solid education in both the field of Criminal Justice and Digital Forensics, it is believed that all other Ferris State University students majoring in other areas will increase their employment opportunities. The minor is based upon combining two criminal justice courses with four courses in security, forensics, and fraud. The course is designed for students to explore the concepts of information security from both historical and emerging perspectives. Topics include the capabilities and threats of technology to information security, computer crime, computer and mobile device forensics, as well as legal, ethical and professional issues. Also, the history, nature and extent of computer crime and the roles and responsibilities of the legal system will be investigated.
