Part of the Practitioner Series book series (PRACT.SER.)


Throughout this book you will find that we have consistently referred to the term “Forensic Computing” for what is often elsewhere called “Computer Forensics”. In the UK, however, this latter name has been adopted by a commercial company operating in the forensic computing field and we felt that it was not appropriate for us to use a name that carried with it commercial connotations. Hence our use of “Forensic Computing”. Having said that, however, we will need on occasion to refer to “Computer Forensics” particularly when quoting from overseas journals and papers which use the term and our use in such circumstances should then be taken as synonymous with that of “Forensic Computing” and not as a reference to the commercial company.
