Shavers, with a background in the military and law enforcement, offers a comprehensive look at the unique complexities that can be involved in civil and criminal investigation where digital technologies play a significant and often deciding role. The book delves into the many aspects of digital investigations. Techniques of analysis for both "live" (powered on) and "dead" (powered off) computers are discussed. Suspect and victim interview techniques unique to digital investigations are presented. New forms of surveillance such as those involving mobile devices, keystroke loggers, GPS vehicle trackers, and social networks as well as traditional approaches like trash runs are covered here as well. There are also chapters covering basic evidentiary rules common to any forensics effort as well as case management, case presentation, and the use of visual aids. The final chapter contains numerous helpful case studies illustrative of the points made elsewhere in the book. Syngress Media is an imprint of Elsevier.
