The field of computer forensics has experienced significant growth recently and those looking to get into the industry have significant opportunity for upward mobility. Focusing on the concepts investigators need to know to conduct a thorough investigation, Digital Forensics Explained provides an overall description of the forensic practice from a practitioner-s perspective.
Starting with an overview, the text describes best practices based on the author-s decades of experience conducting investigations and working in information technology. It illustrates the forensic process, explains what it takes to be an investigator, and highlights emerging trends.
The text includes acquisition forms, a sequential process outline to guide your investigation, and a checklist of supplies you will need when responding to an incident. Providing you with the understanding and the tools to deal with suspects who find ways to make their digital activities hard to trace, the book also considers cultural implications, ethics, and the psychological effects that digital forensics investigations can have on investigators.
