In 2004, Sam Houston State University established the Center of Excellence in Digital Forensics. The center is dedicated to preparing digital forensics professionals through teaching, training and research. The Center of Excellence in Digital Forensics has a dedication to developing new approaches in the detection, preservation and analysis of digital evidence. The Center is constantly investigating and validating new and innovative techniques to glean ever more information from any source of digital evidence. The Center maintains software and hardware tools to improve data detection/recovery and network security. We regularly partner with government, law enforcement, and industry to ensure that we remain at the forefront of our field.
