Cybercrime Training Lab

Mission Statement

The goal of the Cybercrime Training Lab (CTL) is to provide timely and technologically advanced training in the forensic investigations arena. With the support of federal, state and University funding, a state-of-the-art facility has been put in place to serve those who strive to maintain public safety. Our courses are designed for, but not limited to, the law enforcement community.

The lab currently hosts certficate classes in Digital Forensics provided through the Continuing Education program as well as graduate-level classes from the School of Administrative Science's Master of Administrative Science program leading to a certificate in Computer Security and Forensic Administration.  The lab is also the meeting place for FDU's Computer Forensics Special Interest group.  


On October 16th, 2006, Congressman Steve Rothman joined FDU President J. Michael Adams, members of the FDU administration, faculty and staff, as well as representatives of numerous law enforcement agencies for a ribbon cutting ceremony officially opening the Cybercrime Training Lab on the Metropolitan campus. Congressman Rothman was instrumental in obtaining federal funding for the space renovation creating the Lab, which will provide much needed cybercrime training and education for security professionals and the law enforcement community.

Two 21-workstation classrooms have been developed to provide training using various pieces of equipment spanning generations of technological advances. Classes currently being offered, or in the preparatory stages, include hands-on training in the examination, seizure and legal use of data and evidence from such devices as PDAs, cell phones, and both laptop and desktop hard drives.
