Monday, October 31, 2005 (19:49:57)
Television crime shows such as "CSI" have brought the science of computer forensics to the forefront of public awareness. But just like about everything coveted by Hollywood, there exists a significant gap between art and reality. No one knows that better than real-life computer forensics investigator Angelique Grado, of The Woodlands. Vice president and director of operations of CyberEvidence Inc., Grado is quick to point out that what makes for a good script doesn't always qualify as proper technique...
