About the book

Digital Forensics is a field of Forensics to be explored and then executed with a hope to deliver better justice to the mankind. It includes a wide field of forensics unexplored and unearthed, which will be the prime reference for forensic researchers, diagnostic, technologists and cyber experts for their future practice in their respective fields. The book will visualize and primarily focus on the various aspects of new frontiers in forensic science associated with the production, collection or interrogation of such evidence sample. This will also amalgamate fundamental principles of forensic cyber analysis, protocols and procedures needed for the better forensics. The principles and techniques detailed are then demonstrated and discussed in their applications to real-world investigations and casework conducted over the past several years so that it becomes an evaluation hardcover of all aspects of cyber forensic analysis.The book will give ideas for student projects by Forensic Focus members in the hope that further research will be shared with the computer forensics community.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
