Why study Electronic Security and Digital Forensics at Middlesex?

The smooth running of societies and economies is now dependent on the security of computer networks, and cybercrime, from fraud, identity theft and cyber stalking to terrorism and espionage, can affect anyone and is at the forefront of government policy. But many court cases have collapsed because of a lack of experts trained in the meticulous art of tracking down evidence. Our innovative course was created to meet the demand for skills in an area that's chronically short of well-qualified graduates.

The course has a strong practical focus, with an emphasis on both in-depth technical and legal theory and hands-on project work. You'll work in our specialist computer forensics laboratory in our award-winning technology centre, using the latest forensic software, including Forensic Toolkit version 5.0, Encase version 7.0 and Micro Systemation XRY Complete. You'll also have the opportunity to achieve XRY Logical certification during the course.

Course highlights:

  • We have strong links with industry - we work with companies such as Microsoft and Siemens, and we are a Cisco local academy and a Xilinx university partner.

  • The course is accredited by the British Computer Society for Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status. This means that upon graduation, you'll have fulfilled the academic requirements for achieving those titles, though you'll need to complete further professional development.

  • The course is led by Dr Carlisle George, a former barrister who has co-edited two books on regulatory issues in healthcare information. He is a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Electronic Security and Digital Forensics and leads the university's ALERT (Aspects of Law and Ethics Related to Technology) research group.

  • You'll also improve your communication, teamwork, time-management, organisational, analytical and critical skills.

  • As a student of this course, you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.
