From the Back Cover

Master the techniques for gathering electronic evidence and explore the new frontier of crime investigation.

 

 

The demand for computer forensics experts greatly exceeds the supply. With the rapid growth of technology in all parts of our lives, criminal activity must be tracked down and investigated using electronic methods that require up-to-date techniques and knowledge of the latest software tools. Authors Linda Volonino, Jana Godwin, and Reynaldo Anzaldua share their expertise to give you the legal, technical, and investigative skills you need to launch your career in computer forensics. You can also use Computer Forensics: Principles and Practices  to help you advance in careers such as criminal justice, accounting, law enforcement, and federal investigation.

 

Computer Forensics : Principles and Practices gives you in-depth understanding of:

  • Using the correct investigative tools and procedures to maximize effectiveness of evidence gathering.
  • Keeping evidence in pristine condition so it will be admissible in a legal action.

·         Investigating large-scale attacks such as identity theft, fraud, phishing, extortion, and malware infections.

  • The legal foundations for proper handling of traditional and electronic evidence such as the Federal Rules of Evidence and Procedure as well as the Fourth Amendment and other laws regarding search warrants and civil rights.
  • Practical tools such as FTK, EnCase, Passware, Ethereal, LADS, WinHex, GIMP, Camouflage, and Snort.

 

This book is filled with tools to help you move beyond simply learning concepts and help you apply them. These tools include:

·         In Practice tutorials: Apply concepts and learn by doing.

·         Exercises and Projects: Assignments show you how to employ your new skills. 

  • Case Studies: Apply what you learn in real-world scenarios.

 

The companion Web site (www.prenhall.com/security) includes:

·         Additional testing materials and projects to reinforce book lessons.

·         Downloadable checklists and templates used in the book.

·         Links to additional topics and resources to assist you in your professional development.

Format: Paperback
I liked the book. It opened my eyes to a lot of areas I knew nothing about. I can understand previous reviewers who weren't happy with the book. Some material is dated and it isn't an All-In-One text on the subject. But, if you're just starting out, like me, it is a great first read. Also, by actually doing the Projects in the back of each chapter, especially Chapter 7 and 8, you'll get a ton of information on very useful forensic topics and techniques including, software that you can download and use for free, etc...

If some websites for the software don't exist anymore, Google the names and the info on where to get it will come up. If you are into learning forensics, having to find this info shouldn't discourage you, otherwise you're learning the wrong subject.

I had a blast with this book and it really wet my appetite to learn more. What more could you want from an introductory text on any subject.

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book for beginners and experienced forensics experts. It talks about all possible situations you could encounter from a technological and legal stand point. This book really prepares you for how to be ready for the field and explains everything in a really friendly way. The book is a very easy read but is specific and isn't vague like other books I have read. You can literally keep reading and not have to take a break.

Format: Paperback
Computer Forensics: Principles and Practices is a great teaching tool for forensic investigators of all skill levels. For a beginner, the book takes you through the investigative process from A to Z and doesn't leave out the more advanced and complicated processes of data carving, email reconstruction and mobile device analysis.

For the advanced user, there is plenty of information that is both relevant and useful, some of which you may not have seen before. I appreciated this most because of the specific processes outlined and the tools that were described. I am a big fan of books that can help you apply examples to your own processes, something this book does very well.

Everything from A to Z, this book provides excellent material focusing on process and step-by-step analysis using the latest tools available.

Format: Paperback
This books gives some decent insite into the world of computer forensics if you have never touched on the subject before, but you certainly will not come away with the ability to perform computer forensics on your friends old hard drive. Leave that to the experts...

Helped me to provide my high school students to the introductory world of computer forensics and that was all I needed it to help me with.

It's an interesting book, but very outdated. This was required material for my class...in 2013...the book is from like 2007. Not much about smartphones, no tablets, no anonymous, BIG disappointment.

I found a bargain compared to purchasing this textbook from my school. I'll keep my eyes open for future deals.
