Description

Digital Forensics has recently gained a notable development and become the most demanding area in today’s information security requirement. The book investigates the areas of digital forensics, digital investigation, and data analysis procedures as they apply to computer fraud and cybercrime, with the main objective of describing a variety of digital crimes and retrieving potential digital evidence.

Big Data Analytics and Computing for Digital Forensic Investigations gives a contemporary view on the problems of information security. It presents the idea that protective mechanisms and software must be integrated along with forensic capabilities into existing forensic software using big data computing tools and techniques.

Features:

  • Describes trends of digital forensics served for Big Data and the challenges of evidence acquisition
  • Enables digital forensic investigators and law enforcement agencies to enhance their digital investigation capabilities with the application of data science analytics, algorithms, and fusion technique

The book is more premeditated to make professionals as well as researchers get ready with the next generation security systems to mount the raising challenges of computer frauds and cybercrimes as well as the digital forensic investigations.
