Cyber forensics is becoming a key factor in crime detection and control, Vice-Chancellor of Andhra University G.S.N. Raju said while inaugurating a two-day national seminar on cyber forensics - Cypher 2013 here on Friday.

The demand for cyber forensics experts was increasing and a seminar like this would help the participants to understand the latest issues and inventions, Prof. Raju said. The Department of Computer Science and Systems Engineering of AU College of Engineering is organising the seminar with assistance from TEQUIP.

Principal of AUCE Ch. V. Ramachandhra Murthy said controlling cyber crime became a challenge as technology was being misused.

Convenor of the seminar D. Lalitha Bhaskari, Additional SP (cyber crime) U. Rammohana Rao, HoD P. Seetaramayya, co-convenor S. Jhansirani, IT expert J. Nagavalli and others spoke.
