A guide to cybercrime and how to investigate it in order to build a prosecution
Utilising a mixture of technicality and legal analysis, Computer Forensics: Cybercriminals, Laws, and Evidence explores what cybercrime is, how it is investigated, and the laws surrounding the collection and use of electronic evidence. In this book you will be introduced to the tools and techniques of computer forensic investigation.
Students are introduced to the technology involved in computer forensic investigations and the technical and legal difficulties involved in searching, extracting, maintaining and storing electronic evidence, while simultaneously looking at the legal implications of such investigations and the rules of legal procedure relevant to electronic evidence. Significant and current computer forensic developments are examined, as well as the implications for a variety of fields including computer science, security, criminology, law, public policy and administration.
This book is appropriate for undergraduate or introductory graduate computer forensics courses.
