5.0 out of 5 stars A detailed and essential reference manual. 31 Mar. 2014
By CB
Format:Paperback
The considerable experience and knowledge of the authors is evident in the content of this long overdue book, which will no doubt become the standard reference material for this specialist subject. With their respective backgrounds in forensics, intelligence, investigations and policy, the authors have created a thorough and extensive manual detailing best practice and legal and policy compliance, in the investigation, management and governance of computer forensic seizures and examinations. The book details the correct steps in the creation of the forensic laboratory environment, and progresses through the search and seizure, investigation, and evidential submission stages, whilst highlighting the requirements for the maintenance of evidential integrity and policy compliance throughout the processes. The check lists in the appendices provide a very useful aide-mémoire for investigators and managers. Every conceivable issue both electronic and human elements, that might arise in the formation and development of a forensic laboratory are addressed with concise guidance, further reference sources and supported by policy templates. Any organisation or individual concerned in the field of computer forensic investigations would substantially benefit from consulting this book. Additionally anyone considering establishing, or currently operating, a computer forensic laboratory would find this essential reference material, especially if seeking formal accreditation for their facilities. An excellent reference manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and concise. 7 Feb. 2014
By Bill P
Format:Paperback
This book covers everything in a clear and concise manner. It covers in detail setting up the laboratory, risk management, end to end case management, and plenty more. There are step by step breakdowns of processes and lots of real world examples of genuine situations (e.g. handling of equipment powered on or powered off on arrival).

But what I really like is how straight to the point this book is. There is such a vast quantity of information, but finding what I need to know is simple. Thoroughly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable resource to ensure a forensic investigation is done correctly 16 Dec. 2013
By Ben Rothke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Digital Forensics Processing and Procedures: Meeting the Requirements of ISO 17020, ISO 17025, ISO 27001 and Best Practice Requirements

When it comes to a digital forensics investigation, process is crucial. If certain steps are skipped or done incorrectly, a saavy defense attorney can have the evidence thrown out.

With that, no one will mistake Digital Forensics Processing and Procedures: Meeting the Requirements of ISO 17020, ISO 17025, ISO 27001 and Best Practice Requirements for a Tom Clancy novel. While books from Clancy are page turners, Digital Forensics Processing and Procedures is not a book that is necessarily going to be read from cover to cover in the same way.

What the book does do is provide a comprehensive and all-inclusive set of details that covers the entire lifecycle of a digital forensics investigation, ensuing evidence gathered, and chain of custody that results.

In these investigations, all it takes is one misstep to have hundreds of hours of log analysis discarded. A book like this can ensure that trivial mistakes which can undermine an investigation don’t occur.

The web site for the book was not up at the time this review was written.

Authors David Lilburn Watson and Andrew Jones bring decades of detailed real-world experience to the book, which readers are certain to find to be a unique reference.

For those who want to ensure that their digital forensic program follows best practices and accepted industry methods, Digital Forensics Processing and Procedures: Meeting the Requirements of ISO 17020, ISO 17025, ISO 27001 and Best Practice Requirements will prove to be an invaluable resource.

4.0 out of 5 stars require correct URL or link to download the free templates 6 Nov. 2013
By Sazali Musa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It is one of a kind we would say...with good comparisons & huge collection of references. The only matter is that, still could not find the right link to download the templates and relevant appendices. Eventhough in the Preface paragraph stated "....will contain the most up-to-date material: [...] - none of them listed, other than that where else we could find those materials...
