This was something I had been wondering as well, and happened to stumble upon something similar. The book put out by the honeynet project has a chapter on legal issues, and its one of the sample chapters they put online. It is not directly related to forensics, but it talks about legal issues surrounding packet sniffing and things of that nature that would come with setting up a honeypot. Worth checking out till you find something more comprehensive.

The book CyberRegs by Zoellick is a good starting place too. It's broken down, but is a good high level reference that may point you in the right direction.

There are a few good sources out there. I have used the following

"Electronic Evidence" by Alan Gahtan (1999) Thomson Canada Limited

The Encase legal journal at http//www.guidancesoftware.com/lawenforcement/ef_legalresources.asp

Encase focused, but discussion on expertise required and review of cases is good.

Try http//www.craigball.com/articles.html for some articles

Regards,

Is there any book recently published with current UK and US legislation for forensic computing analysis?

I would also prefer to read a book that talks about history on how and why there were changes in legislation in the past. Most importantly, I need an updated guide of legislation.

Any help, please?

This is a very good book, got me though my Computers and the Law exam. I still use it as a reference in work too, definitely a good read.

Just to note though mine was titled 'Information Technology Law'

ISBN 978-1-4058-4666-0

UK Law and US Law is very different.

for UK Law - the main acts you need to know are
PACE 1984 - seizure and evidence
RIPA 2000 - seizure
Human Rights Act
Computer Misuse Act
Telecommunications Act

There is a set of law books called STONES which covers every possible ACT in UK. Expensive but essential to a Legal Person.

For US LAW - I have no idea - sorry

Just to add several more to jon63 list

- The Wireless Telegraphy Act (important to wireless devices (e.g. mobile phones and also laptops etc with fixed wireless capability)

- The Communications Act jon63 made a good call mentioning Telecommunications Act for although parts were repealed for The Communication Act (governing licensing and content etc etc) the latter Act is not retrospective e.g. to older cases charged under The Telecommunications Act and so on

- The Electricity Act (still raises its head regarding abstracting electricity in various guises)

In the US you not only need to be familiar with national laws, but with state laws as well.
