Format: Paperback
This book explains more how to work with legal issues than actually use computer forensics. There is very little actual "how to" and more "the defense will ask you". If you want to learn computer forensics, this is not the book for you, unless you are a master of uncovering data, but have no idea how show your skill in court.

Format: Paperback
I am a system engineer who needed a refresher on the topic. The logical segregation of topics makes it very easy to pinpoint the information since this topic is far-reaching and spans the legal, criminal and technical disciplines. I have some experience with CF and this book does a good job of giving you a comprehensive understanding of the subject. It's also an interesting read and keeps your attention. You won't want to put it down for long.

Careers in this area are growing fast. I plan to keep this close as I move into this exciting field of work and will use it as a reference book going forward.

Format: Paperback
WoW! This is a book that should be read by everyone. Especially corporate heads and some in government. What you discover is that the electronic trails are everywhere and someone in the know can and will retrieve them, if need be. So be careful what you write or do on your computer, there are no secrets!
Good writing, technical enough to keep us geeks in the read, but not so technical that everyone couldn't read it and learn a great deal. This is a book that I found myself going back to for additional information on a subject I believed I understood. It exceeded my expectations in every way.

Being that I work in the tech industry, I know that there's far more on your computer (and other electronic devices) than you think there is. But I haven't ever given any in-depth thought to how one would legally go about discovering and documenting their finds for a court of law. Computer Forensics For Dummies by Linda Volonino and Reynaldo Anzaldua do a perfect job (in my opinion) in introducing the reader to the world of computer forensics, both from the technical side as well as the courtroom perspective. While I wouldn't expect it to be your primary guide for the field, Computer Forensics For Dummies goes a whole lot further than I expected, and I learned a lot.Read more ›

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Hugh J. Watson on October 26, 2008
Format: Paperback
If you use a computer, you probably know that there is an electronic trail that follows you, and that the trail potentially lasts forever and can cause serious legal problems. This book demystifies how computer forensics is performed, what to do if you are ever in trouble (or trying to help someone who is in trouble), and tools that can help you. Though the topic is potentially complex, the book is an easy, interesting read. Statements like "An IP address is like a phone number for your computer" help make the material understandable. It is clear that the authors have considerable practical experience in the area and understand current best practices, computer technology, and the law. The book is appropriate for a wide variety of people -- those with a casual interest in the topic, in legal troubles related to materials on their PC, and lawyers who either work or want to work in the area.

Not only does this book explain what evidence gets left, it helps understand how Wall St execs can be investigated.
Easy to read and understand. It clears up alot of mysteries about what's going on inside computers and networks.

I am studying computer forensics as both a hobby and another degree. I bought this book to use as a primer. It is funny as well as informative. I recommend it to anyone considering a career in computer forensics.
