Summary

Now extensively updated, this authoritative, intensely practical guide to digital forensics draws upon the author’s wide-ranging experience in law enforcement, including his pioneering work as a forensics examiner in both criminal and civil investigations.

Writing for students and other readers at all levels of experience, Dr. Darren Hayes presents comprehensive, modern best practices for capturing and analyzing evidence, protecting the chain of custody, documenting investigations, and more -- all designed for application in actual crime scenes. In this edition, Hayes tightly aligns his coverage with widely-respected government curricula, including NSA Knowledge Units; and with key professional certifications such as AccessData Certified Examiner (ACE).

A Practical Guide to Digital Forensics Investigations, Second Edition presents more hands-on activities and case studies than any book of its kind, including short questions, essay questions, and discussion questions in every chapter. It addresses issues ranging from device hardware and software to law, privacy and ethics; scientific and government protocols to techniques for investigation and reporting. 

Reflecting his deep specialized knowledge, this edition offers unsurpassed coverage of mobile forensics, including a full chapter on mobile apps. It also adds new discussions of capturing investigatory data from today’s ubiquitous Internet of Things (IoT) devices; as well as digital forensics techniques for incident response and related cybersecurity tasks. Throughout, Hayes presents detailed chapters on crucial topics that competitive books gloss over, including Mac forensics and investigating child endangerment.
