Book Description :

Digital forensics is a crucial science. Technology is ubiquitous in our society, and we are standing at the cusp of an important point in history. We are currently at the point where we use technology to support our lifestyle. Soon we will enter an age where technology supplements it. An age where our car will send us an email to remind us it has checked our calendar and booked an oil change at a shop a mile from our house. Where we can view a webcam on our phones to see that grandma is ringing the doorbell. It is already estimated that digital evidence is present in over 95% of all crimes. Our future indicates this is going to be more important, not less. At the same time, we have relatively few digital forensic experts to support this future - a phenomenon known as "going dark." Put simply, in our age fewer and fewer crimes are solvable without digital evidence. Digital Investigations: Evidence and Forensics focuses on the examination phase of a digital investigation. It reviews the technical skills of digital forensics - locating and acquiring forensic artifacts on Windows systems, emails, and file systems. It also covers critical skills lacking in other works - how to handle a digital crime scene and the forensic process for computer systems. It answers the following questions: What do we do when we have a crime scene on our hands? What do we do with evidence? What do we do with evidence once we have it?Since the author also teaches these courses, the text will include labs to teach technical skills, such as data recovery, evidence identification, forensic timelines, etc. This book is ideal for readers with little exposure to the world of digital forensics and the investigative process. Provides an overview of the tools and techniques experts in the field of computer crime need in digital forensics Includes steps on how to handle a scene, identify/acquire/preserve evidence and disk and data recovery Readers learn terminology and tools of digital investigations, how to conduct examinations, specifically of Windows systems, as well as email

Book Description :

Digital forensics has been a discipline of Information Security for decades now. Its principles, methodologies, and techniques have remained consistent despite the evolution of technology, and, ultimately, it and can be applied to any form of digital data. However, within a corporate environment, digital forensic professionals are particularly challenged. They must maintain the legal admissibility and forensic viability of digital evidence in support of a broad range of different business functions that include incident response, electronic discovery (ediscovery), and ensuring the controls and accountability of such information across networks. Digital Forensics and Investigations: People, Process, and Technologies to Defend the Enterprise provides the methodologies and strategies necessary for these key business functions to seamlessly integrate digital forensic capabilities to guarantee the admissibility and integrity of digital evidence. In many books, the focus on digital evidence is primarily in the technical, software, and investigative elements, of which there are numerous publications. What tends to get overlooked are the people and process elements within the organization. Taking a step back, the book outlines the importance of integrating and accounting for the people, process, and technology components of digital forensics. In essence, to establish a holistic paradigm—and best-practice procedure and policy approach—to defending the enterprise. This book serves as a roadmap for professionals to successfully integrate an organization’s people, process, and technology with other key business functions in an enterprise’s digital forensic capabilities.

Book Description :

Cybercrime and cybersecurity are of increasingly high profile not only within law enforcement but among policy makers, legal professionals and the general public. The establishment of the European Cybercrime Centre at Europol and the recent publication of guidelines on the prosecution of social media cases by the Director of Public Prosecutions serve as illustrations of the reach and impact of cybercrime related issues. As more of our day to day lives are conducted via digital mediums, cybercrime has ceased to be a purely specialist area and as technologies rapidly evolve and advance so do the challenges and threats raised, making it more important than ever for practitioners working in this area to stay up to date. Building on the detailed legal analysis in the first edition, this updated text remains the only comprehensive work to cover the complete lifecycle of cybercrimes, from their commission to their investigation and prosecution. With its clear and accessible structure, Computer Crimes and Digital Investigations provides essential guidance on the substantive and procedural aspects of cybercrimes for both experienced practitioners and for those new to the field. Substantial developments have occurred since the publication of the first edition of this work, in terms of the threats faced, the legislation and case law, and the response of law enforcement. The second edition will include new material on topics such as cyberwarfare; orders made against convicted criminals; and issues of surveillance and interception as well as expanded discussions of cyber security policy and laws, intermediary liability, developments in policing activities and prosecution policies, and developments in cross-border search and seizure and mutual legal assistance and extradition. An expanded comparative discussion of law and policy within the EU and under the Budapest Convention, as well as other international organizations such as the United Nations, places cybercrime in its international context.
