Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using personal computers as their weapons, hackers and criminals (some only 11 years old) have attacked the Internet, government agencies, financial companies, small businesses, and the credit card accounts of unsuspecting individuals. This completely updated book/CD package provides a complete overview of computer forensics from information security issues to "crime scene investigation," seizure of data, determining the "fingerprints" of the crime, and tracking down the criminals. The book's companion CD-ROM contains demos of the latest computer forensics software. Numerous exercises, case studies, and vignettes of actual crimes enhance the topics under discussion, and provide the reader with solutions to computer crime in the real world.

Book News Annotation:

Describes techniques for analyzing risks to a computer system, extracting and documenting computer evidence stored as data or magnetically encoded information, and implementing a security policy that protects information assets from potential intrusion. The guide is intended for law enforcement personnel and computer professionals involved in security. The CD-ROM contains demonstration software tools.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
