The Center for Advanced Research in Digital Forensics and Cyber Security has been founded with the vision of conducting cutting-edge research and development in the fields of Cyber Security and Digital Forensics. Established under the aegis of Anna University, and a division of GA Software Technologies (Georgia Technologies). We aim to educate Law Enforcement Agencies and other key institutions on the current vulnerabilities in the cybercrime landscape and the methods to mitigate them using the latest technologies and methods.
Need for a Dedicated Research Center
With the growth of the cyber and cellular consumer base, the importance of digital forensics is at its peak. Digital Forensics deals with the recovery, preservation and forensic analysis of digital evidence extracted in its original form from computers, storage devices, mobile phones, PDA (Personalized Digital Assistant), printers, copy machines, cameras, video game consoles and other such devices.
