In a unique and systematic way, the book discusses the security and privacy aspects of the cloud, and the relevant cloud forensics.

Cloud computing is an emerging yet revolutionary technology that has been changing the way people live and work. However, with the continuous growth of cloud computing and related services, security and privacy has become a critical issue. Written by some of the top experts in the field, this book specifically discusses security and privacy of the cloud, as well as the digital forensics of cloud data, applications, and services. The first half of the book gives readers a comprehensive understanding and background of cloud security, which will help them through the digital investigation guidance and recommendations found in the second half of the book

Part One covers cloud infrastructure security; confidentiality of data; access control in cloud IaaS; cloud security and privacy management; hacking and countermeasures; risk management and disaster recovery; auditing and compliance; and security as a service (SaaS). Part Two addresses cloud forensics – model, challenges, and approaches; cyberterrorism in the cloud; digital forensic process and model in the cloud; data acquisition; digital evidence management, presentation, and court preparation; analysis of digital evidence; and forensics as a service (FaaS)

The book includes contributions by top researchers from the US, European and other countries, and professionals active in the field of information and network security, digital and computer forensics, and cloud and big data.  It also includes the contributions from graduates of UCD’s MSc in Forensic Computing & Cybercrime Investigation such as Sebastian Schlepphorst (2014), James Plunkett (2013), Michel Mollema (2016), Robert Craig (2016) and Steven Ryder (2015)

It will also be of interest to those focused upon security and implementation, and incident management.

Logical, well-structured, and organized to facilitate comprehension

Security, Privacy and Digital Forensics in the Cloud is an ideal book for advanced undergraduate and masters-level students in information systems, information technology, computer and network forensics, as well as computer science. It can also serve as a good reference book for security professionals, digital forensics practitioners and cloud service providers
