Editor: Eoghan Casey

I am currently reading Handbook of Digital Forensics and Investigation edited by Eoghan Casey.

The book is divided into two main sections. Part 1 deals with investigative methodology including forensic analysis, electronic discovery, and intrusion investigation. Part 2 is focused on technology including forensic analysis of Windows, Unix, and Macintosh systems as well as analysis of embeded systems and mobile devices.

The book is a compilation of articles and information provided by 16 authors from various backgrounds and institutions from the U.S. Army to universities to forensic investigation organizations.

Intertwined within the articles are investigative scenarios, stories from case files, practitioner’s tips. The inclusion of these side bars add to break up the reading but also add some real world examples and tips that keep the already interesting book even more intriguing.

Mr. Casey has written several books related to the digital forensics field.  A few of the other popular books that are referenced often on forensic websites and blogs are listed below.

  • Malware Forensics Field Guide for Windows Systems
  • Malware Forensics Field Guide for Linux Systems
  • Digital Evidence and Computer Crime: Forensic Science, Compauter and the Internet 3rd Edition
  • Handbook of Computer Crime INvestigation: Forensic Tools and Technology
