Book Description

Crime science and digital forensics: A holistic view, is a collation of articles which contribute to the discourse on counter forensics practices and digital investigative methods from a crime science perspective. The book also shares alternative dialogue on information security techniques used to protect data from unauthorised access and manipulation. Scandals at OPCW and Gatwick Airport have reinforced the importance of Crime Science and the need to take proactive measures rather than a wait and see approach currently used by many organisations. This book is intended as a platform for showcasing a new approach to dealing with cybercrime and unsociable behavior involving remote technologies using a combination of evidence-based disciplines in order to enhance cybersecurity and authorised controls.

The book starts by providing a rationale for combining selected disciplines to enhance cybersecurity by discussing relevant theories and highlighting the features that strengthen privacy when mixed. The book then presents in a series of 12 chapters, innovative techniques from a crime science standpoint that enhance cybersecurity. The essence of a holistic model is brought about by the challenge facing digital forensic professionals within environments where tested investigative practices are unable to provide satisfactory evidence and security. The editors conclude by illustrating foregoing contributions, as well as topical areas of digital forensic research, to proposition future pathways for the combined disciplines. This book will be of much interest to students, digital forensic and cyber security practitioners and policy makers. It marks a new route in the study of combined disciplines to tackle cybercrime using digital investigations and crime science.
