An in-depth look at the tools, techniques, and tactics used in computer forensics
The New Forensics introduces readers to the world of business forensics, using interesting vignettes, interviews, and actual crime reports. It examines recent cases in which the use of computer forensics led to evidence linking executives to fraud and covers issues such as the theft of trade secrets, the use of data mining, money laundering, and other types of theft and fraud. Author Joe Anastasi, a well-respected leader in computer and business forensics, leads the reader on a shadowy journey through top-secret government offices and real-life business investigations while covering the moral and legal issues surrounding corporate crime. Case studies, stories, and interviews help highlight important issues and move the book out of the theoretical into the realm of actual practice.
Joe Anastasi (San Francisco, CA) serves as the Global Leader for Deloitte Forensics, which includes the operation of several Cybercrime Computer Forensics labs located around the world. He is a member of the High-Tech Crime Investigation Association and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

Very interesting collection of information on computer vulnerabilities and capabilities relating to data theft and recovery. Sections on NSA surveillance of communication and thinking algorithms were especially engrossing. Highly recomend this book. Read full review

I'm reviewing this book for one of Brian McKenna's Elsevier pubs. Ultimately, I don't think it a really good book. It is poorly written, and so many of the facts are wrong that I don't know what to trust. Read full review
