The Information Age's "Wild West" is rapidly being civilized. The laws are now in place to protect computers and data. What's needed are competent sheriffs, capable of investigating cyber crime and tracking down the perpetrators. Sleuthing computer crime is shaping up as one of the 21st century's most fascinating professions -- and there's now a complete handbook for its practitioners.
Cyber Crime Investigator's Field Guide covers every stage of computer forensics, starting with the all-important first steps investigators must take when they arrive on the scene. You'll learn what questions to ask first, how to use the most important evidence gathering tools, and how to protect crucial evidence once you discover it. There's practical coverage of the tasks you'll need to perform most often (e.g., recovering lost passwords; working with attack signatures; following the tracks intruders leave in network infrastructure).
Bruce Middleton demystifies computer forensics with a start-to-finish case study that illuminates how computer security investigations are really done. His detailed Q&A sections draw on his nearly 20 years of experience. The guy has consulted with everyone from the NSA and Department of Defense to major financial institutions). This is frontline expertise -- distilled for immediate use. (Bill Camarda)
