Reviews for the previous edition: "Digital Evidence and Computer Crime provides an introduction to many concepts from computer science about networks, and in particular the Internet. It details the application of forensic science principles to the location, recovery, and examination of digital evidence...Each chapter in the book is fully supported by case examples to clarify particular points made. It also contains many references to specialized literature and on-line resources as well as a helpful glossary of terms...this book can be recommended mainly for people looking to expand their general knowledge and awareness of computer crime and the process of computer crime investigation, particularly those just entering the field of digital forensics." --Dr. L.W. Russell, Science & Justice "Many, perhaps most, of the police, lawyers or systems administrators and forensic scientists involved in investigation or prosecution of computer-related crimes do not know the answer to these questions [of digital evidence handling]. This book will tell them. It should, of course, be equally interesting to lawyers with the task of defending alleged computer criminals." --Robert L Dunne, JD, The Center for Internet Studies, Yale University, USA "...an excellent book that details the elements of digital crime. Author Eoghan Casey does a superb job of applying forensic science to computers. The information presented here is critical to a diverse audience: law enforcement, attorneys, forensic scientists, and systems administrators, for instance...In all, the book and CD are an excellent introduction to an increasingly important area of law enforcement." -- Ben Rothke, SecurityManagement I would very highly recommend this book to all those professionals who want to venture into the new and exciting branch of computer forensics. This book is good value for money, and should adorn the bookshelves of all computer experts, especially those who are in computer forensics. - Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine Reviews for 2nd Edition: This behemoth of a book offers more than 680 pages of useful information on digital forensics and computer crime. There's something for everyone - law enforcement agencies that collect and process evidence, forensic analysts, lawyers and other information security professionals. ...Casey does a great job making difficult concepts easy to understand. The tools and methodology described are up to date and relevant, and the case studies are detailed perfectly. This book is a great reference for any security professional facing issues in this area. - ComputerWorld
"Eoghan Casey’s work will be music to the ears of computer-crime investigators. Remarkably thorough in scope, this book offers something no other textbook does: a stable set of standards to achieve and surpsass…. Remarkably, given the short lifespan of today’s tech books, this book is likely to have lasting value."--Security Management
Required reading for anyone involved in computer investigations or computer administration!

Be aware this is not a text on "computer crime". Eventually it will include something on this subject, but its focus is "general" crime evidence searching.
On the other hand, if you have strong IT background you will find this book something like a tutorial and missing lots of "more advanced" possibilities, but can be useful for some initial hints to some techniques to be developed in other place.
Note: this is not a book aimed at network security personnel. You need to know something about law and about investigations to get the most out of it.
Such a resource is here: Digital Evidence and Computer Crime, an excellent book that details the elements of digital crime. Author Eoghan Casey does a superb job of applying forensic science to computers. The information presented here is critical to a diverse audience: law enforcement, attorneys, forensic scientists, and systems administrators, for instance.
While cybercrime law is in some ways similar to other aspects of criminal law, it nonetheless has its own language and categories. For instance, jurisdiction is a key element in both the physical and digital realms, but it is a much trickier concept in the latter. Casey develops this topic and many more. Those new to computers and networks need not worry: the book begins with an explanation of how they function. With the basics out of the way, Casey details how computers can be used in crime and how the evidence created from these activities can be used for later analysis....The accompanying CD-ROM contains simulated cases that integrate many of the topics covered in the text. In all, the book and CD are an excellent introduction to an increasingly important area of law enforcement.
