Author information

Brett Shavers is a former law enforcement officer of a municipal police department. He has been an investigator assigned to state and federal task forces. Besides working many specialty positions, Brett was the first digital forensics examiner at his police department, attended over 2000 hours of forensic training courses across the country, collected more than a few certifications along the way, and set up the department's first digital forensics lab in a small, cluttered storage closet.

Review quote

"Shavers, with a background in the military and law enforcement, offers a comprehensive look at the unique complexities that can be involved in civil and criminal investigation where digital technologies play a significant and often deciding role. The book delves into the many aspects of digital investigations. Techniques of analysis for both 'live' (powered on) and 'dead' (powered off) computers are discussed. Suspect and victim interview techniques unique to digital investigations are presented."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013 "I would highly recommend the book to anyone in the field of digital investigation, computer forensics, or who may just have an interest in the fascinating world of cybercrime investigation. This is a must read for any aspiring novice cybercrime investigator and the seasoned professional computer guru as well as a needed addition to any digital investigator's library."--Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law, Volume 8(2), 2013 "This book offers a complete picture of a cybercrime investigation, and with the author's clear and interesting writing, it manages to give aspiring digital forensic investigators a good idea of what such a job entails when working with law enforcement. It's a very easy and engaging read."--Help Net Security online, September 5, 2013
