13 Track in Computer Forensics & Incident Response Learn how to perform digital forensic investigations based on a solid understanding of the fundamental nature of digital evidence and an ability to apply the analytic and investigative tools in a forensically sound manner. Students will be taught by CERT® faculty and trained on state-of-the-art software. All the courses progressively build on one another, while providing concrete skills along the way.

14 Who is CERT? The CERT® Program is part of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), a federally funded research and development center at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (since 1984). Following the Morris worm incident, which brought 10 percent of internet systems to a halt in November 1988, the U.S. Department of Defense charged the SEI with setting up a center to coordinate communication among experts during security emergencies and to help prevent future incidents. This center was named the CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC).CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC)

21 Quote from Jesse Schell, CEO Schell Games, Lecturer/Asst. Prof. at ETC (MSIN Class of 1993) “The thing to understand about the INI is the opportunities it's going to give you. Yes, you're going to have world-class educational opportunities, you're going to be able to take the greatest classes from the greatest instructors, and you're going to be side-by-side, shoulder-to-shoulder with people who are going to go out and change the world. However, the main thing to understand is the freedom you're going to have to make the program be whatever you want it to be. Almost anything you can think of, you can make it happen at the INI if you want to."
