Computer Forensics in the Global Supply Chain: 609901CW

Organizations increasingly rely upon relationships with third-party vendors and partners.  These relationships have become progressively more complex as companies engage in more cross-border relationships.  A firm’s scrutiny of its supply chain technology is particularly important in the modern era of hacking and computer crimes.  Failure to adequately study cyber-attacks can substantially increase an organization’s risk of significant financial losses, as well as exposure to legal investigations and reputational damage.  Students will learn the importance of cyber forensics in the global supply chain and how to conduct investigations that include gathering evidence, using software to decode hidden files, and presenting findings.
