Summary and Info
I've heard Bruce Middleton speak at international security conferences before and followed some of the articles he has written in the past on information security so when I noticed that he had written a book on investigating computer security incidents (CyberForensics), I knew it would be a great book to have. I was not disappointed. This is definitely a book for professionals in this field (like he says...it's a field book...something you take to the field with you for reference). Someone new to the field would also get alot out of the book if they have access to the professional level software he uses throughout the book (outstanding software from Guidance Software [EnCase], NTI [their computer forensics tool suite] and AccessData [their FTK = Forensics ToolKit] ). Even if you don't have the software currently and you want to break into this field, it's a great book to buy due to the fact that he goes into detail explaing various process, procedures, methodologies, etc that firmly relate to solving computer related crimes. I also understand that he is holding hands-on training classes with this software and using this book as the foundation. Bottom line...this book is an excellent "must have" for a CyberForensics professional working in the field and a great read for those wishing to break into this field.
