Availability: Ready to download

Digital evidence—evidence that is stored on or transmitted by computers—can play a major role in a wide range of crimes, including homicide, rape, abduction, child abuse, solicitation of minors, child pornography, stalking, harassment, fraud, theft, drug trafficking, computer intrusions, espionage, and terrorism. Though an increasing number of criminals are using computers Digital evidence—evidence that is stored on or transmitted by computers—can play a major role in a wide range of crimes, including homicide, rape, abduction, child abuse, solicitation of minors, child pornography, stalking, harassment, fraud, theft, drug trafficking, computer intrusions, espionage, and terrorism. Though an increasing number of criminals are using computers and computer networks, few investigators are well-versed in the evidentiary, technical, and legal issues related to digital evidence. As a result, digital evidence is often overlooked, collected incorrectly, and analyzed ineffectively. The aim of this hands-on resource is to educate students and professionals in the law enforcement, forensic science, computer security, and legal communities about digital evidence and computer crime. This work explains how computers and networks function, how they can be involved in crimes, and how they can be used as a source of evidence. As well as gaining a practical understanding of how computers and networks function and how they can be used as evidence of a crime, readers will learn about relevant legal issues and will be introduced to deductive criminal profiling, a systematic approach to focusing an investigation and understanding criminal motivations. Readers will receive access to the author's accompanying Web site which contains simulated cases that integrate many of the topics covered in the text. Frequently updated, these cases teaching individuals about: • Components of computer networks • Use of computer networks in an investigation • Abuse of computer networks • Privacy and security issues on computer networks • The law as it applies to computer networks• Provides a thorough explanation of how computers and networks function, how they can be involved in crimes, and how they can be used as a source of evidence • Offers readers information about relevant legal issues • Features coverage of the abuse of computer networks and privacy and security issues on computer networks • Free unlimited access to author's Web site which includes numerous and frequently updated case examples

    Good reference, a bit dated. Hard to concentrate at times when author talks about Netscape Navigator or ICQ Profile pages as an example of commonly used browser and social networking site.

    The book I read to research this post was Digital Evidence & Computer Crime by Eoghan Casey et al which is an excellent book that I bought from kindle. If you are reading this post on either shelfari or goodreads I have a computing blog at http://scratbag.me & a technology blog at http://scratbagroberts.com where there are various other book reviews on digital forensics along with other stuff. I wish I could give this book 6 stars on both of the book review sites but obviously 5 is the maximum.

I really enjoyed reading this book which I think is around 2,000 pages and really gives you lots of information on its subject matter. This is definitely one of the best books I have read on digital forensics. I'll give you some tidbits of information from this book. In an accredited digital forensics each person will have several procedures they do really well and that is all they will do. You are unlikely to find someone trained in every aspect of digital forensics. If a lab loses a case they will probably go out of business if they are a private company and they can't take that risk. The job of seizing equipment at the crime scene is often done by forensic people so as not to disturb any evidence. There is many aspects of digital forensic science to give its full name like mobile devices, networks, photographs and obviously computers.

    The author does a great job in explaining things, even ten year old's would understand. The thing that bothers me is the lack of practical examples, other than that its a good theoretical intro into digital forensics.

    Actually in the time it was written this probably was a very current book. Perhaps it's been updated, but some of the items talked about in this book probably are not even known to young people.

    Basics in this book are excellent. The history in this book is excellent. The absence of Windows 7 and 8 is what I really needed and it was missed.
