Computer Forensic University Courses

Update:  Are university forensics courses any good?

Following on from the previous post on Computer Forensics Courses, below is a list of the current university courses with places available, in the UK. (Correct at the time of publishing)

Attached is spreadsheet highlighting the position of the universities providing Computer Forensics courses according to the Guardian League Table. Another useful resource for University league tables is the Times

Books

For those going starting on a computer forensics course, with the intention of going into the industry, the following books may be of interest:

Digital Evidence and Computer Crime by Eoghan Casey. A good book, though dated now, the author writes well and so its easy to read.

Malware Forensics – another book by Eoghan Casey, but one that focuses on “malware”. Good for those studying the Trojan defence and who want to go into a law enforcement/criminal work, not really for those in the civil sector, unless they have a very specific case they want to investigate.

A good resource on file system –  for the students who want to know what is going at the low level – is File System Forensic Analysis

    This is an excellent resource for any data recovery company needing to know what courses are available for their staff.

    If you are a considering a career in forensic investigations we are building one of the largest teams in the North of England.

    With access to our own high capacity Data Recovery Lab with an IS0-3 (class 1 ) Certified Clean Room , and cost effective chain of custody, secure wiping and forensic investigations the Security House facility has become the resource for forensic investigators who do not have their own data recovery lab.
