Cybercrime Investigation Case Studies

Cybercrime Investigation Case Studies is a “first look” excerpt from Brett Shavers’ new Syngress book, Placing the Suspect Behind the Keyboard. Case studies are an effective method of learning the methods and processes that were both successful and unsuccessful in real cases. Using a variety of case types, including civil and criminal cases, with different cybercrimes, a broad base of knowledge can be gained by comparing the cases against each other. The primary goal of reviewing successful cases involving suspects using technology to facilitate crimes is to be able to find and use the same methods in future cases. This “first look” teaches you how to place the suspect behind the keyboard using case studies.

About the Author
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. Besides working many specialty positions, Brett was the first digital forensics examiner at his police department, attended over 2000 hours of forensic training courses across the country, collected more than a few certifications along the way, and set up the department’s first digital forensics lab in a small, cluttered storage closet.

Brett has been an adjunct instructor at the University of Washington’s Digital Forensics Program, an expert witness and digital forensics consultant, a prolific speaker at conferences, a blogger on digital forensics, and is an honorary member of the Computer Technology Investigators Network. Brett has worked cases ranging from child pornography investigations as a law enforcement investigator to a wide range of civil litigation cases as a digital forensics expert consultant. And even though it’s been more than two decades since wearing the uniform, he’s still a Marine.
