Wednesday, November 09, 2005 (11:19:59)
The reason the Secret Service puts so much emphasis on computer forensics is fairly simple: Computers are where the clues are. “Today, just about every crime scene has some form of digital evidence,” said Dale Pupillo, deputy special agent in charge of the agency’s Criminal Investigative Division. And the types of crime that most commonly involve computer use are often right up the Secret Service’s alley...

Digital clues help police land high-tech pirates

Monday, November 07, 2005 (11:21:54)
Last month, the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force, along with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Secret Service, busted what they described as a massive DVD pirate ring. When the case goes to court, the prosecuting attorneys should have some strong evidence, thanks to both the cybersleuthing prowess of the detectives and additional information provided by optical-disk forensic software. This software can read information embedded on DVDs and CDs that can’t be viewed by normal means...

Friday, November 04, 2005 (13:20:53)
A British teenager has been cleared of launching a denial-of-service attack against his former employer, in a ruling that delivers another blow to the U.K's Computer Misuse Act. At Wimbledon Magistrates Court in London, District Judge Kenneth Grant ruled Wednesday that the teenager had not broken the CMA, under which he was charged.

Audit trails and computer forensics

Thursday, November 03, 2005 (10:48:01)
If your employer accuses you of hacking into the company’s computing system and perpetrating a fraud, and you happen to be guilty, what is your safest tactic if you want to escape criminal charges? The answer is: Ask them to prove it. One out of three times, even if computer forensics experts are brought in and given unfettered access to all systems, it will be impossible to prove who is guilty of what. The reason is that few computer networks maintain comprehensive audit trails of who did what and when...

IT Security Breach? Don’t just step in CSI Style

Tuesday, November 01, 2005 (23:28:55)
In every company in the UK there is likely to be a PC, and therefore an IT security breach is almost inevitable. These are the findings of the 2005 National High Tech Crime Unit report into the effect of computer crime on businesses. The main concern for said decision makers after a breach had occurred was how to maintain business continuity. However if half of IT staff employed within companies have no formal IT security qualifications, what exactly must you do to stop your business grinding to a halt? Firstly don’t step in guns blazing CSI style – the Channel 5 TV show that is. Although the glossy crime series has brought Computer Forensics to the forefront of public awareness, it does little to reflect the correct and essential procedures that must be put in place once there is suspicion of criminal activity...
