2014 Digital Forensics Curriculum Standards Workshop

The 2nd International Workshop on Digital Forensics Curriculum Standards (DFCS 2014) was held in Denver, Colorado on August 7, 2014, in conjunction with the DFRWS USA 2014 conference.

The Organizing Committee consisted of Roy Campbell, Eoghan Casey, and Masooda Bashir.

The goal of the workshop was to serve as a forum for discussion of digital forensics curriculum standardization, bringing together representatives from digital forensics standardization organizations, practicing digital forensics professionals, and educators from universities and colleges that have established digital forensics curricula or are considering adopting them. Leveraging our own experiences in developing and piloting an all-new multidisciplinary undergraduate digital forensics program at the University of Illinois, as well as the diverse perspectives and experiences of the participants, we worked to discover a common ground of what people would accept as a curriculum standard, and what roadblocks we face for widespread adoption.

The University of Illinois organized this workshop as a key step in the creation of its all-new digital forensics curriculum.
