Welcome to CoEDF!

Cyber Criminals are focusing on large industrial enterprises, the BFSI sector and national critical infrastructure since there are greater chances today of succeeding in their attacks; making off with money and inflicting devastating damage; yet remain untraced.

These attacks are growing in size and complexity. The losses suffered by oil majors ostensibly due to a well-orchestrated attack by the Anonymous and the hactivism that impacted major banks during end 2012 clearly point to the ubiquity of these attacks and the widespread expertise available with attackers. The growth in the complexity and size of cybercrimes has resulted in the obvious viz., a strong need to have comprehensive forensic processes run by those who understand both technology and law and are able to challenge some of the best technical brains behind cybercrimes. The competence of cybercriminals today surpasses the general competence of forensic professionals who are either investigating the crime or are supporting such investigations.

This competency gap together with a strong need to build skill sets to meet the growing demand in various aspects of cybercrime management has been a primary trigger in the formation of this Center of Excellence in Digital Forensics (CoEDF).

Taking into account the requirement emerging for protection of information technology infrastructure in the country as well as to serve the export market, a demand for 4.7 lakh cyber security professionals has been estimated by the year 2015.
