I am going back and forth with a publisher on a new computer forensics book. The publisher thinks another technical book would have the best market.

While I can certainly write a technical book, there are a lot of them out there already.

I think that a book that teaches how to do computer forensics from the initial meeting with a client through going to court would be a better idea.

How to handle everything from counseling the attorney or client in the case through the analysis of the case through reporting, depositions and court testimony. How to analyse the work of the opposing expert, how to read warrants, what language to give attorneys for motions for evidence, contracts, etc.

Also, how to market your forensics consulting business, how to set pricing, how to write your CV, etc.

So my question is, if you could pick a topic for a book written just for you, what would you want to see?

Anything goes.

i am looking to learn everything from A-Z. i will complete my A.A.S. in Computer Forensics in may and have purchased the Encase study guide. it would be nice, as you mentioned, to have a book that explains some of the non-technical issues. i have learned tons in the classroom and from books but nothing on the things you mentioned and i would definitely but it.

While there may be good arguments for the A to Z approach.. The problem is that no two cases will be alike... so the A to Z approach may only address a small portion of the total population of potential cases.

Technical is easy...... you can use the technical skills in any case situation... you use the appropriate skills to approach the situation... thats why most books address the technical aspects, their application is universal.

I have decided I am gonig to do a book on the criminal defense side of computer forenics. That is one that is missing from the market and will be a great learning tool for anyone involved in digital forensics. Seeing how an expert goes about challenging the evidence from the other side.

Larry, I think this is a great idea. I own several computer forensic books and they start to overlap after a while, that is why I like to examine my books before a purchase. I would definitely like to see a more procedural book out there as well.

Good luck with the book project.

Hey Larry,

Something I've heard from many CF students over the years (both corporate and public) is the lack of published materials and instruction on providing testimony for computer forensic cases. It could be a very worthwhile chapter to include in your book.

Best of luck

As a side note, I enjoy your Blog

As a secondary side note, GO 'HEELS!

There may not be quantity in data forensics and testimony, however a book I do recommend is:

A Guide to Forensic Testimony: The Art and Practice of Presenting Testimony As An Expert Technical Witness (Paperback)
# ISBN-10: 0201752794
# ISBN-13: 978-0201752793

An excellent book.


Cheers!
