New book showcases digital forensic research by UCD law enforcement graduates

Cyber and Digital Forensic Investigations, A Law Enforcement Practitioner’s Perspective features contributions from graduates of the UCD MSc in Forensic Computing and Cybercrime Investigation, based on their dissertations (major research projects).

There are few research books in the literature where all first authors are Law Enforcement members (or were when they did their research). 

The book was co-edited by Dr Nhien-An Le-Khac, Lecturer/Assistant Professor in UCD School of Computer Science and co-Director of the UCD (opens in a new window)MSc Forensic Computing & Cybercrime Investigation, working closely with the authors and his colleagues including co-editor Professor Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo of The University of Texas at San Antonio, USA. Contributors are from many countries around the world.

This is the first time that a research book has been published based on the outputs of a single education programme. It discusses the state of the art in incident response and digital forensic.
