Placing the Suspect Behind the Keyboard is the definitive book on conducting a complete investigation of a cybercrime using digital forensics techniques as well as physical investigative procedures. This book merges a digital analysis examiner's work with the work of a case investigator in order to build a solid case to identify and prosecute cybercriminals.

Brett Shavers links traditional investigative techniques with high tech crime analysis in a manner that not only determines elements of crimes, but also places the suspect at the keyboard. This book is a first in combining investigative strategies of digital forensics analysis processes alongside physical investigative techniques in which the reader will gain a holistic approach to their current and future cybercrime investigations.

• Learn the tools and investigative principles of both physical and digital cybercrime investigations—and how they fit together to build a solid and complete case.

• Master the techniques of conducting a holistic investigation that combines both digital and physical evidence to track down the "suspect behind the keyboard."

• The only book to combine physical and digital investigative techniques.
