I have BSC in computer science and few years of experience as a C++ programmer (mainly embedded). I'm starting a new job in the forensic field
and don't know where to start. Can you recommend me a specific book or link tutorial? I need mainly the data collections and analyze part, i.e. databases, files, web files, logs etc just to determine if someone has taken a specific action or not. As a fresh beginner something for the "easy" cases would be great as long as it is practical (how to do things? i.e. SQL server logs, Windows logs etc)

I need to work on fraud issues related to websites, for example someone
says you registered its service through his website while you say
you didn't so need to scan its database, look in database logs, get some clues about the website etc.
I guess the most popular databases are SQL Server and Oracle so maybe things related to it.
well actually my employer knows I don't have forensics training but only have computer background as a software engineer. I would like to have a starting point - any good book/website with technical information - I would like to start with the common and easy scenarios and not the complicated ones.
What do you think about "SQL Server Forensic Analysis" was written in 2008 - still good for today (as SQL Server 2012 exists).
and what about "Forensics For Dummies" ??

hey i m doing my masters in engineering in computer science branch and opt computer forensics for thesis but unable to find a topic. please suggest something.
How about starting a new thread so that the topic gets right? Just a suggestion ... I might have ideas for a proper question in a thread of its own, but one that hijacks another thread is one I feel somewhat reluctant to do anything with.
