Product Description:

Basics of Digital Forensics

Review:

"The coverage of topics is very inclusive and this is sure to become required reading for anyone interested in this field."--Dr. Marcus K. Rogers (CISSP, DFCP) Director - Cyber Forensics Program at Purdue University "The Basics of Digital Forensics is extremely easy to read and understand, and tackles the topic in a very broad manner. All in all, it's a perfect book for those who are interested in the subject and for gauging whether they might be interested in finding out more about it in the future."----Help Net Security "Sammons (integrated science and technology and forensic science, Marshall U.), a former police officer, investigator, and cybercrime task force member, introduces students and beginners to digital forensics, its methods, concepts, and labs and tools. He explains how to collect evidence from Windows systems, the Internet, email, networks, and mobile devices, as well as antiforensic activities like hiding data and password attacks, legal issues, and emerging technologies such as solid state hard drives and cloud computing."--Reference and Research Book news, Inc. "This is highly detailed material. Although the introductory chapter adopts an easy pace, with overviews of important technical concepts, most of the other chapters get right down to the practice of forensic analysis. This is not a book you're going to want to read in bed: you'll want this right next to a computer - preferably two or three computers running different operating systems - so that you can try the techniques for yourself as you work your way through. The authors admit that this book does?not cover everything you need to know. For instance, it focuses entirely on 'dead drive' forensics - offline systems. Analysing running systems often requires high-level proprietary tools. But it does give an excellent grounding in the methods of digital forensic analysis and provides a valuable first step in learning the technicalities."--Network Security, May 2012, page 4 "With the inclusion of some practical exercises, the book could easily become part of a basic training program for newly hired digital forensic examiners. For experienced examiners, the book can serve as a quick resource to review some basic concepts that we sometimes neglect as we focus on more detailed and complex examinations. This book should be considered a must-read for anyone who wants to pursue a career in digital forensics and a must-have for those examiners already working in the discipline." --DFINews. com
