Description:

Information security issues and crimes related to them are growing in occurrences and magnitude at an ever-increasing pace. Private corporate security departments, investigation and forensic consulting and training firms, and members of the law enforcement community are all struggling to keep pace with the ever-changing issues related to combating high-tech computer crimes. High-Technology-Crime Investigator's Handbook informs professionals of the potential risks of high-tech crimes as well as educates on the resources that are available to combat them. Each chapter is updated with the latest information and guidance, including added coverage of increasing global changes and threats, managing an international/global INFOSEC program, and additional metrics to measure organizational performance. In addition, nine new chapters will cover emerging trends in information security, including understanding todays new threats, high-tech fraud and crime investigative support for law enforcement authorities, the Information System Security Officer (ISSO) and ethical conduct, and chapters on information security consulting. This book will help the reader to set up a team and a system that will catch perpetrators and validate the evidence to be used in prosecution in civil, criminal, or legal proceedings. The book also covers computer forensic programs and how to organize an investigations department from the planning, business management, and program implementation perspective. Furthermore, unlike other, more technical books that go into code and specific operating systems, this book is a procedural manual written in an easily readable format that is geared towards todays busy computer security and investigative management professionals. - Includes many real-world cases from a legal and investigative aspect to reinforce the need for a reliable procedure for criminal prosecution in the courts - 9 new chapters presenting the latest information and resources to counter information security threats - Photographs illustrate crime scenes and hackers systems and hardware used to perpetrate acts of computer crime
