    University of Portsmouth Teaching Fellow in Cyber Security and Forensic Computing
    Soraya Harding says

    Cyber security and forensic computing is an up and coming subject. The industry requires more specialized professionals in this field.

    The United Kingdom has skilled individuals who are highly sought after by government agencies as well as companies that can often offer higher salaries.

    The skills gained in the cyber security and forensic computing degree are unique as it combines analytical, managerial, and technical skills that help private and public sector digital investigations.

    In 2013, the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee noted a shortage of UK funding for forensic science research. In December 2015, the UK Government announced £4.6m of police force funding for digital policing reform. The College of Policing, National Crime Agency and National Police Chiefs’ Council has recognised a need to develop digital investigation and intelligence capabilities.

    The cyber security and forensic computing degree address the needs for the digital and intelligence gathering in the UK job market.
