Lower cost education, not cheaper

This is really cool!
At UMUC, we are committed to saving students time and money by reducing or eliminating the need to purchase textbooks and other course materials. Starting in fall 2016, most graduate textbooks will be replaced with no-cost electronic resources, also referred to as Open Educational Resourses (OERs). With the exception of some courses that require the use of specific software or content that cannot be accessed for free, students will not need to purchase any course materials. The Cybersecurity Programs NO longer use textbooks. None of the courses require them.

Join me for another Semester


At the end of this course, students should be able to:

  •  Identify the basic principles and tools used in computer forensics. 
  • Understand the main techniques used in data acquisition and analysis and in recovering image files. 
  • Critically evaluate the procedures in processing crime and incident scenes, especially on digital evidence controls, and in presenting digital evidence in court. 
  • Analyze the specific forensic techniques for Windows, Mac, Unix, and cell phone operating systems. 
  • Discuss the main issues and techniques associated with network forensics and malware investigation. 
  • Explain the issues, procedures and techniques used in contingency planning, cyber attack recovery, and business continuity planning and execution.
There are no textbooks in this course. Only Open Educational Resources (OERs) are being used.
Class starts tomorrow, so my posts here should start around the following Wednesday.
