Approximately 80 percent of the world’s population now owns a cell phone, which can hold evidence or contain logs about communications concerning a crime. Digital devices like cameras, PDAs, and GPS can also contain information related to a corporate policy infraction or crime. Aimed to prepare investigators in the public and private sectors, this book covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of investigating handheld digital devices and emphasizes the policies needed in the work environment. The author provides examples of commercially available digital forensic tools and discusses how to seize data, examine it, and prepare it as evidence for court.
