    Computer Hacking Forensics Investigators: Reducing Security Breaches



    Computer-hacking forensics investigation has become a very popular practice within the corporate world. Although most knowledge workers probably equate computer-hacking forensics investigation with law enforcement, the military or the security community, very few understand the deep, positive impact computer-hacking forensics investigators can bring to the organizations they represent. Computer forensics is “the gathering, authentication, examination and analysis of electronic information stored on any type of storage medium.” Often, computer forensics is used in criminal cases when a device is involved with a crime. For example, in cases where the computer is the source, tool or target of a crime, such as e-mail fraud, child pornography or a virus attack, law enforcement officers will conduct detailed forensics investigations to bring the culprits to justice.

      Interesting read....thanks for that.

      Work is getting me the following book....
      Computer and and Intrusion Forensics
      - hardcover
      ISBN: 1580533698

      http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1580533698/102-5526984-6600922?v=glance&n=283155

      ...and then I went off to a MS Security Seminar in Australia recently...

      Btw - I did alright at the MS Security Seminar - I won the item below [only 3 given out] for answering a tech question correctly....
      "Protect Your Windows Network: From Perimeter to Data"
      - softcover
      ISBN: 0321336437

      http://www.awprofessional.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=0321336437&rl=1

      ....which will help no end at both at work and for my security specialisation that I am working on.

      Also I got to the Security Seminar early and got the FULL seminar DVD technical document set that was in short supply - I got some filthy looks from some my industry associates on both counts..... :blink :biggrin
