Cybersecurity Training for Faculty

Digital Forensics

The National Security Agency has awarded a consortium of universities, led by the University of Colorado, Colorado Spring a grant to provide Cybersecurity Training. Florida International University Electrical and Computer Engineering department and the National Forensics Science Technology Center is offering courses, workshops and bootcamps to train novice cybersecurity faculty in developing knowledge, skills and teaching practices in digital forensics. The two courses will amplify digital forensics concepts and understanding. The workshops provide insight on best practices to teach digital forensics courses, and the bootcamps develop and exposes students to various tools and how best to apply them during a digital forensics investigation in gathering artifacts.

Faculty participants are able to choose according to their interest, one from among the courses, workshops, and bootcamps.  The two, two week workshops “Fundamentals of Digital Forensics” and “Teaching Techniques in Digital Forensics” aim to focus on fundamental concepts and pedagogical techniques to teach digital forensics providing teaching materials to participants. The two online courses, which last 8 weeks “Introduction to Digital Forensics” and Network Forensics provide in-depth coverage of these topics. There are no exams in the course and the course is not graded. The two bootcamps, which are conducted online synchronously, last 5 days and exposes students to the usage of digital forensics tools and techniques. These are “Digital Forensics Tools/Network Forensics Tools” and Mobile Forensics Tools/Image and Video Forensics”. These courses, workshops and bootcamps are offered five times during the next year and a half.
