Conduct Cutting-Edge Forensic Investigations of Computer Crimes.
Whether it's phishing, bank fraud, or unlawful hacking, computer crimes are on the rise, and law enforcement personnel who investigate these crimes must learn how to properly gather forensic evidence in the computer age.
Now you can get the training you need in this comprehensive guide from two seasoned law enforcement professionals. From recognizing high-tech criminal activity and collecting evidence to presenting it in a way that judges and juries can understand, this book covers the range of skills, standards, and step-by-step procedures you'll need to conduct a criminal investigation in a Windows environment and make your evidence stand up in court.
The book also covers the emerging field of "live forensics," where investigators examine a system to obtain evidence while it is still running, thus preserving live data that may be lost if the system is shut down.
