Review – Digital Evidence and Computer Crime by Eoghan Casey



I’m doing a bit of work in forensics at the moment, and one of my clients was kind enough to send me a few textbooks for my general perusal. One of them was Casey’s epic 800+ page tome, and when the postman handed it over I staggered under the weight of it and felt a bit daunted. 

It’s really excellent though. A fantastic read for anyone who’s interested in digital forensics as a subject, the book is broken down into sections, each one dealing with a different area, from processing a crime scene to retrieving data from a smartphone. There are useful templates for report writing, memory aids and tips boxes to highlight the most important parts of the text. 

I know it’s big and scary-looking, but it’s absolutely worth reading if you’re a recently-qualified investigator, law enforcement agent or forensic analyst. Check it out.
