Teaching Coursework Master – Computer Forensics

ABSTRACT

This paper discusses aspects of the computer forensic course taught in a Masters degree at Curtin University, Western Australia. Computer forensics is important to both the business and law enforcement environments. Along the path from the enactment of a crime through to the due process of courtroom litigation there are numerous obstacles that may challenge law enforcement and or security practitioners. This paper discusses teaching computer forensics as one of the roles that academia may play in assisting security practitioners and law enforcement agencies investigating computer related crime. It recognizes industry requirements and addresses an academic response for the need for computer forensic training and education by providing an overview of the computer forensic course taught in a Masters degree at Curtin University.
