The NCFC provides digital forensic services for local and regional law enforcement, as well as for businesses, corporations and law firms, with the use of high-tech computers and sophisticated software in the laboratory. At the same time, cybersecurity students have the opportunity to intern in the facility, gaining invaluable work experience.
