  • Forensics

    This is really being written in response to this post:

    But, if anyone else is truly interested in the art of Computer Forensics then here are some resources: - Has some good info, though, Personally SANS isn't one of my more favorite groups. - A list of Resources on the subject Matter provided by CERT

    Books to read

    Some of these books are good, some of them, IMHO, are crap. But you can be the judge.

    Incident Response: Investigating Computer Crime by Kevin Mandia and Chris
    Cyber Foreniscs - Marcella/Greenfield
    Handbook of Computer Crime Investigation - Casey
    Computer Forensics - Kruse/Heiser
    Computer Forensics - Vacca
    Security planning and disaster recovery by Maiwald and Sieglein.
    Incident Response by Van Wyk & Forno
    Few of the SANS series books

    There are many more resources out on the internet, but, if you are that interested in Comp Forensics, then I recommend spending some time with Mr. Google.

    Being a CFS can be tedious, there are tools out on the market for the job, but if you want something done right... Write your own.

    I also like Guide to Computer Forensics and Investigations - Nelson/Phillips/Enfinger/Steuart I think its a generally good start for newbies.

    I would also look more into books that polish professional skills. Keep your nose clean, and read a lot of law information, search and seizure, etc....
