This course introduces how digital forensics tools and techniques can be applied in electronic warfare. Electronic warfare (not to be confused with cyber warfare) has been a staple in modern day warfare, especially since World War II, and it has continued to evolve with more technological advancements. Digital forensics provides an avenue for improved capabilities in such warfare to ensure superiority in the electromagnetic spectrum in order to have an upper hand over adversaries.

The increased risk of terrorist activity and hybrid warfare utilization of the electromagnetic spectrum also puts civilians and businesses at risk; hence basic knowledge and awareness of electronic warfare also helps individuals and organizations improve their readiness and protection. Electronic footprints can be analyzed to determine what kind of threat actor they are exposed to, for taking proper and adequate remedial action.

Why THIS course? 

Digital forensics plays an integral part in electronic warfare. It has become increasingly important in an era where cyber threats can originate from numerous sources. Understanding the intricacies of these threats and how to counteract them is a valuable skill in the present digital landscape. While this course focuses on the application of digital forensics in electronic warfare, an understanding of this topic will also enhance the understanding of digital forensics in general, as the principles often remain the same.

Why NOW? 

With the escalating risks in the digital world, it is essential to acquire the skills and knowledge to tackle these threats. Digital forensics in electronic warfare is a rapidly evolving field, and staying abreast of the latest techniques is crucial. The fundamental concepts, however, remain consistent. Therefore, it is best to learn these skills now to be prepared for the future challenges.
