Bashir delivers invited talk about digital forensics to Board of Trustees
ITI and CSL Assistant Professor and GSLIS Assistant Professor Masooda Bashir was recently invited to give a presentation to the University of Illinois Board of Trustees at their September meeting.
Bashir was one of six faculty members on campus who gave brief presentations about their research. These presentations underscored the broad excellence of the campus and provided insight into the factors that attract outstanding faculty to Illinois as well as why they choose to stay. Bashir's research interests focus on how privacy, trust, and cognitive factors intersect with information technology from a psychological point of view.
Bashir's talk, A New Initiative in Digital Forensics Education, introduced a new educational initiative in digital forensics (DF) currently underway at Illinois. The goal of the effort is to create a portable standard curriculum, one that is easily adopted by other institutions and that strongly reflects the multidisciplinary nature and breadth of digital forensics. It will cover not just technical topics but also law, forensics psychology, criminal justice, sociology, and business perspectives on digital forensics, all integrated into a coherent whole. The curriculum will be designed to be adaptable as the field of digital forensics evolves in response to future technological innovations.
