Sign up for CSI-010: Digital Forensics 2021

Cyberworkplace and Techniek College Rotterdam are excited to announce the launch of the third edition of the CSI-010: Digital Forensics course on April 9, 2021. After the successful pilot in 2019 and the second edition in 2020, the organizations are introducing a few improvements. This year’s program includes several new guest lectures, remote access, a buddy program, and more. Former participants who wish to rejoin the course will have a chance to join as student assistants. While guiding the new participants, they can acquire new digital forensics knowledge and improve their mentoring and teamwork skills.

As a result of the high interest in the previous editions of this course, participants’ number has been increased from 20 to 25. By doing this, Cyberworkplace and Techniek College Rotterdam wish to reach a bigger group of passionate young people and give them a chance to develop in digital forensics.
