Abstract:


The fast growing rates of cyber crimes in recent years has raised the need for qualified digital crime investigators to be on high demand. At the present, various educational institutions start to offer Digital Forensics and Cyber Security as separate degree or specialization at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Education in information security in general is based on theoretical principles and analysis together with vast amount of experiments and laboratory work. This paper is proposed to help educational institutes to build an appropriate Digital Forensics Lab that facilitate training for its students and certification for the local community.
