Do you like problem solving and working on computers? Are you creative but also doggedly thorough? Does the quest for elusive clues appeal to you? Do you want to solve crimes? Then TSBI's new major in Computer Security & Forensics may be the right choice for you. Digital forensics professionals work both in computer network security and in the investigation of crimes involving the use of computers and networks. The number of information security incidents is on the rise, making this a particularly high-demand field. At the same time, computers are used in virtually all types of crimes -- sometimes playing a key role in the commission of those crimes, as in financial fraud and identity theft, and at other times primarily serving as record-keepers of conversations and files. Computer Security & Forensics students will learn about the law, computer and network technology, and the investigative process. They will learn to articulate the dynamics of "white-collar crime" and to apply their knowledge of computers, software and the law to research crimes. Graduates employed in the Network Security & Forensics industry are generally given a title such as, security analyst, security managers, network security engineer, computer support scientist, intrusion detection specialist, chief technical officer, network security manager, security specialist, disaster recovery specialist, and firewall managers.
