Digital Forensics is the application of forensic science techniques to the acquisition and analysis of evidence that exists in digital form (e.g. evidence found in files on hard drives, in emails, in network activity, etc). The University of Rhode Island offers one of the most comprehensive degree programs in digital forensics through a Computer Science Department at a major university.
