In Echelon Catapult’s Digital Forensics, students will explore a branch of cybersecurity, which involves the investigation and analysis of material and activity on digital devices. They will learn how to use tools such as Autopsy and Wireshark to analyze users’ computers as they acquire the skills that enable digital forensics analysts to solve real-life cyber crime. Students will participate in challenges such as Cyberstart America and partake in an enticing scavenger hunt that increases their ability to apply the skills learned in this class to real-world endeavors.
All meetings will take place on Zoom.
