Digital evidence - evidence that is stored on or transmitted by computers - can play a major role in any investigation, including homicide, child exploitation, computer intrusions and corporate malfeasance. The scope of computer crime has expanded further with the proliferation of networks, embedded systems, mobile devices and industrial control systems. Digital evidence from these systems can help establish when events occurred, where victims and suspects were, with whom they communicated, and may even show their intent to commit a crime.

Despite the ubiquity of computer-facilitated crime, few people are well-versed in the technical, investigative and legal issues related to digital evidence. As a result, digital evidence is often overlooked, collected incorrectly or analyzed ineffectively.

Digital Evidence and Computer Crime, Third Edition is completely updated, providing the knowledge necessary to uncover and use digital evidence effectively in any kind of investigation. The first and second editions introduced thousands of practitioners to this field, and this third edition expands on the material presented in previous editions to help digital forensic practitioners further develop their skills. The textbook teaches digital investigation and forensic methodologies, how computers and networks function, how they can be involved in crimes, and how they can be used as a source of evidence. This book is suitable for incident responders, forensic analysts, police and lawyers. Case examples and practitioner's tips are provided throughout each chapter to emphasize important concepts.

New chapters include coverage of:

• Handling digital crime scenes • Investigating violent crimes • Applying the scientific method to digital investigations • Legal issues from both the U.S. and European perspectives
