A Practical Guide to Computer Forensics Investigations.pdf
This authoritative, intensely practical guide to computer forensics draws upon the author's extensive experience in law enforcement, including his pioneering work as a forensics examiner in both criminal and civil investigations. Writing for students and law enforcement professionals at all levels, Dr. Darren Hayes presents comprehensive best practices for capturing evidence, analyzing it, protecting the chain of custody, documenting investigations, and more. A Practical Guide to Computer Forensics Investigations presents more hands-on activities and case studies than any previous book of its kind. Hayes thoroughly explains today's latest technologies and technical challenges, and presents detailed chapters on crucial topics that most competitive books cover only briefly, if at all: mobile forensics, Mac forensics, cyberbullying, and child endangerment.
