Electronic discovery (e-discovery) refers to any process in which electronic data is sought, located, secured, and searched with the intent of using it as evidence in a civil or criminal legal case. Computer forensics is the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques to perform a structured investigation, while maintaining a documented chain of evidence to find out exactly what happened on a computer and who was responsible for it. Both of these terms are rapidly becoming the new baseline in the lexicon of litigation and corporate responsibility.
IDC estimates that the U.S. market for computer forensics will be grow from $252 million in 2004 to $630 million by 2009. Business is strong outside the United States, as well. By 2011, the estimated international market will be $1.8 billion dollars. The Techno Forensics Conference, to which this book is linked, has increased in size by almost 50% in its second year; another example of the rapid growth in the digital forensics world.
This book provides law enforcement and IT security professionals with the information (hardware, software, and procedural requirements)
needed to create, manage and sustain a digital investigation. Everything needed for analyzing forensic data and recovering digital evidence can be found in one place, including instructions for building a digital forensics lab and electronic evidence preservation.
* Digital investigation and forensics is a growing industry
* Corporate I.T. departments needing to investigate incidents related to corporate espionage or other criminal activities are learning as they go and need a comprehensive step-by-step guide to e-discovery
