This poster focusses on the ever evolving nature of the digital arena surrounding Cyber Security and Digital Forensics. Digital Forensics plays a crucial role in many criminal investigations with Cyber Security no longer being just a buzzword. However, emphasis is placed on the development, and role of, courses within higher education (HE) and businesses across the United Kingdom. With this development, an effective national curriculum and training framework is increasingly necessary. Discourse surrounding integration of Computer Forensics has placed focus towards the teaching of Digital Forensics, but little in the way of collaboration amongst the community within the educational sector.

There is little assurance over the placement of such a multi-/interdisciplinary course, or its position within STEM subjects; where it has yet to define itself. An aspect of this study is to focus
on the lack of a national framework and work on producing a framework while also focussing on the effectiveness of teaching and training a Digital Forensics practitioner.
