Computer Crimes Investigation Certificate Program to Begin in Fall 2008

Date: July 08, 2008

Medaille College will offer a certificate program in Computer Crimes Investigation at its Amherst Campus beginning in fall 2008.

The Computer Crimes Investigation certificate will provide training in the collection, handling and preservation of digital and electronic evidence. Forensic examination techniques in criminal and administrative settings will also be covered.

The program is designed for law enforcement officers who have not yet completed a bachelor’s degree, and information technology professionals in business, education or government who are responsible for investigating computer misuse, terms of service violations, theft, or unauthorized computer and network access. This six-month program consists of five courses lasting approximately five weeks each.

Steven MacMartin, Director of the Computer Crimes Investigation Certificate Program, offers, “There is a rapidly growing civilian sector of computer investigative and forensic specialists as well as a constant need for trained professionals in the investigation of computer crime in law enforcement. Completing this program can give a leg up to anyone interested in either of these fields.” MacMartin is a senior special agent with the Department of Homeland Security, and has investigated computer crimes for over 20 years.

An information session for the program will be held on July 15, 2008 at 6 p.m. at the Amherst Campus at 30 Wilson Road, Williamsville.
