Forensics a Big Part of Cybersecurity EducationOgeechee Technical College recently purchased some forensic workstations from Forensic Computers, Inc. to enhance the training students receive in the Cybersecurity program.

“The equipment is used primarily for the Computer Forensics class, giving the students the ability to create copies of hard drives so that we can investigate them without disturbing the actual hard drive,” said Terry Hand, OTC’s Cybersecurity instructor.

The stations give students modern-day hands-on training on equipment they would use in the field of IT/Computer Forensics and Cybersecurity. Students can connect hard drives, create images, and investigate those images with the provided software.

Employees from Forensic Computers, Inc. visited campus to help train OTC instructors on the various ways they could use them for instruction in class.

“It was a dynamic opportunity for our CIST and Cybersecurity teams. I even picked up few interesting nuggets of wisdom along the way,” said Dean for Academic Affairs, LeAnne Robinson.
