High Technology Crime Investigator's Handbook is coming at a time when high technology crime is growing at a rapid pace, and private and public law enforcement are struggling to keep up. It will inform readers about the potential of high tech crimes, in addition to the resources that are available to combat them. It fully covers the management of a high tech investigation unit. Criminals today are often better equipped than the agencies responsible for stopping them. Federal, state, county, and local law enforcement agencies and civilian investigative organizations lag far behind in their procurement and use of high technology equipment, and methods of conducting technology-related investigations.
High Tech Crime Investigator's Handbook will bring to light many high tech tools, advanced methods and streamlined applications that can be used to meet the investigative management challenges now and in the next century. The whole area of technological crime has become increasingly complex in today's business environment and this book responds to that reality.
