The widespread use of information and communications technology (ICT) has created a global platform for the exchange of ideas, goods and services, the benefits of which are enormous. However, it has also created boundless opportunities for fraud and deception. Cybercrime is one of the biggest growth industries around the globe, whether it is in the form of violation of company policies, fraud, hate crime, extremism, or terrorism. It is therefore paramount that the security industry raises its game to combat these threats. Today's top priority is to use computer technology to fight computer crime, as our commonwealth is protected by firewalls rather than firepower. This is an issue of global importance as new technologies have provided a world of opportunity for criminals. This book is a compilation of the collaboration between the researchers and practitioners in the security field; and provides a comprehensive literature on current and future e-security needs across applications, implementation, testing or investigative techniques, judicial processes and criminal intelligence. The intended audience includes members in academia, the public and private sectors, students and those who are interested in and will benefit from this handbook.

Computer-Forensik Hacks ist eine Sammlung von Methoden, Tipps und Tricks – kurz: Hacks – aus allen Bereichen der Computer-Forensik. Die Autoren, die bei der Polizei Forensiker ausbilden, haben praktische Lösungen für echte Problemstellungen aus dem Computer-Forensik-Alltag in kleine, bekömmliche Portionen gepackt, die direkt angewendet werden können. Zu jeder praktischen Lösung gibt es auch das notwendige Hintergrundwissen mit auf den Weg, das benötigt wird, um sowohl das Problem wie auch den Lösungsansatz nachvollziehen zu können. Nicht nur für Forensiker Nicht nur Forensiker müssen heutzutage wissen, wie sie den Zustand eines Computersystems sichern können, damit dies bei späteren Gerichtsverhandlungen juristisch wasserdicht ist. Auch für Systemadministratoren aus der freien Wirtschaft gehört mittlerweile ein computer-forsensisches Grundwissen zum Arbeitsalltag. Und auch Rechtsanwälte benötigen immer wieder Wissen darüber, was bei einer Datensicherung beachtet werden muss. 100 spannende Hacks rund um das Thema Computer-Forensik Computer-Forensik Hacks beginnt mit Hacks zur Vorbereitung und Daten­sicherung, gefolgt von Tipps und Tricks zu Dateisystemen. Der Hauptteil dreht sich um Datenwiederherstellung und das Analysieren der unterschiedlichsten digitalen Spuren, bevor Kapitel zu den Themen Hacking und Virtualisierung folgen. Alle Hacks arbeiten mit Open-Source- oder freier Software Die Hacks in diesem Buch benutzen grundsätzlich kostenlose Software, also Open-Source- oder Freeware Software. Bei wenigen Lösungen verweisen die Autoren aber auch auf Software, die für die Privatnutzung kostenlos, für gewerbliche oder behördliche Nutzung jedoch kostenpflichtig ist.
