Digital evidence: computer forensics and legal issues arising from computer investigations

by Michael Hannon. W. S. Hein. 2011.
368 pages.

This title -- aimed primarily at attorneys, judges, and anyone interested in the science of digital evidence and computer forensics -- identifies and explains some of the most important issues in this field using language that is easy to understand and not particularly full of jargon. It covers basic hard drive technology (how files are stored, recovering deleted files, and other computer forensics topics), sources of digital evidence (metadata associated with computer files, e-mails, log files, temporary internet files), and a discussion of the Fourth Amendment as it relates to computers. This title also cites to relevant case law throughout the text.
