Placing the Suspect Behind the Keyboard is the definitive book on conducting a complete investigation of a cybercrime using digital forensics techniques as well as physical investigative procedures. The book is a procedural guide that merges a digital analysis examiner's work with the work of a case investigator to build a solid case to identify and prosecute cybercriminals. Author Brett Shavers links traditional investigative techniques with high-tech crime analysis in a manner that not only determines elements of crimes, but also places the suspect at the keyboard. This book is a first in combining investigative strategies of digital forensics analysis processes alongside physical investigative techniques in which readers will gain a holistic approach to their current and future cybercrime investigations.
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.
