Computer Forensics

GCN (Government Computer News) offers a special report on computer forensics (July 31, 2006). Components include:

  • Computer forensics: The New DNA, featuring the Department of Defense's Cyber Crime Center ("DC3").
  • Who is accredited to analyze forensic evidence? Three states -- NY, OK, TX -- "have passed legislation requiring forensic evidence presented in court to have been processed by an accredited facility." There are only 12 labs accredited for computer forensics.
  • Darlene Druyun's downfall: e-mail, discussing the investigation of the Air Force employee who steered business to Boeing while negotiating for a job at Boeing -- the employee and Boeing's former chief financial officer both pleaded guilty to conflict-of-interest charges.
