Digital Forensics Processing and Procedures (book excerpt)

Tuesday, April 29, 2014 (11:06:28)
The following is an excerpt from the book Digital Forensics Processing and Procedures written by David Watson and Andrew Jones and published by Syngress. In this section from chapter 3, learn about the areas that must be considered when setting up a forensic laboratory.

When initially setting up the Forensic Laboratory, there are a number of issues that will need to be considered. Many of these have been touched on in the previous chapters, and some are expanded here, others have dedicated chapters later in the book. Once the business case (or the equivalent if in government or law enforcement) has been developed, a range of issues will need to be addressed and these must be documented to describe the fundamental basis on which the Forensic Laboratory is being established and on which it will be run...

Cyber Crime & Warfare: Book Review

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 (03:36:50)
Between the ongoing revelations about NSA surveillance and the usual drumbeat of security warnings about everything from Android smartphones to cars, it's a good time for a primer on what's actually going on. This slim volume — in an All That Matters series that usually covers religion, philosophy and Shakespeare — aims to cover both the history and the scale of cyber-crime, cyber-espionage, cyber-warfare and a handful of related online threats. Leaving aside the irony of newspaper journalists (Peter Warren and Michael Streeter) writing about hacking, this is a useful introduction to the state of play for anyone who hasn't been paying attention...

Review: 'Digital Forensics for Legal Professionals'

Friday, May 04, 2012 (08:37:38)
Authors Larry and Lars Daniel have assembled a nearly perfect book: "Digital Forensics for Legal Professionals: Understanding Digital Evidence From the Warrant to the Courtroom" is a reference manual, instruction guide, and a best practices and lessons-learned archive that's essential reading for legal professionals working with digital evidence. The topics covered in the book are designed efficiently and easily absorbed, with technical and legal concepts articulated by real-world examples. Technical concepts, such as HASH values, metadata, file carving, and thumbnail caches are simplified. Laws and acts, including civil and criminal proceedings, the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act of 2006, rules of discovery, and orders are explained clearly enough for non-lawyers to understand...

IAAC: Digital Evidence, Digital Investigation and E-Disclosure

Monday, March 12, 2012 (16:43:58)
Organisations and individuals currently have little idea how to collect and preserve evidence from computers and the Internet. As a result criminal prosecutions become difficult, businesses fail to get redress in the civil courts or are unable to make proper insurance claims, and business value is lost.

That’s the message of Digital Evidence, Digital Investigation and E-Disclosure: A Guide to Forensic Readiness for Organisations, Security Advisors and Lawyers (PDF file) to be launched by the Information Assurance Advisory Council on Wednesday 21 March 2012...

Book review: Cyber Warfare

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 (11:16:59)
Cyber-espionage, cyber-war: do we really need to worry about them — and if we do, what can we do about them? Cyber Warfare sets out to answer both questions via a comprehensive survey of the potential threats, the incidents we know about, the tools we could use to detect and protect against attacks, and the legal basis for all of this...
