Product description

From the Back Cover

Whether monitoring the Internet for threats and chatter, capturing computer evidence, or crunching forensic data, Guidance Software's EnCase computer forensics software is recognized as the premier computer forensics tool on the market. For investigation professionals, EnCE certification tells the world that you've not only mastered the use of EnCase software, but also that you've acquired in-depth forensics knowledge and proper techniques for conducting complex computer examinations.

Written by two law enforcement professionals who are EnCE and computer forensics experts, this official guide prepares you for both phases of the EnCE exam: a computer-based test and a hands-on test that requires you to examine computer evidence.

Key topics include:

  • Understanding Computer Hardware. Understanding computers is crucial for computer forensics experts who are frequently asked to describe systems to juries. The book explains a computer's components, boot process, partitions, and files systems.

  • First Response. What to do and how to follow procedures when first entering a scene.

  • Acquisition of Digital Evidence. Creating EnCase boot disks; booting with EnCase boot disks; and drive-to-drive, network cable, FastBloc, Linen and Enterprise acquisitions.

  • EnCase Forensic Software Overview. Tour of EnCase environment including software, menus, and capabilities.

  • Report Writing. Sample reports from real-life cases (names changed).

  • EnCase Legal Journal. Essential information on operating within the law and giving expert testimony.
