Forensic Engineering Investigation is a compendium of the investigative methodologies used by engineers and scientific investigators to evaluate some of the more common types of failures and catastrophic events. In essence, the book provides analyses and methods for determining how an entity was damaged and when that damage may have legal consequences. The material covers 21 common types of failures, catastrophic events, and losses that forensic engineers routinely assess.

Forensic Evidence: Science and the Criminal Law is intended to serve as an introduction
and guide to the appreciation and understanding of the significant historical,
contemporary, and future relationship between the world of the forensic sciences
and the criminal justice system. This book is not intended to be a close study of
forensic science, nor was it ever conceived as becoming one. It is devoted to a study
of the judicial response to uses of forensic science in the investigation, prosecution,
and defense of a crime....
Criminal psychology, forensic technology, and profiling. These three disciplines
have received a wealth of media attention over the past decade. Consequently,
due to public and professional interest, a plethora of books have been published.
The technique of offender profiling, or classifying offenders according to their
behaviors and characteristics, has been developing slowly as a possible investigative
tool since 1841 and the publication of the The Murders in the Rue Morgue
by Edgar Alan Poe, in which detective C.

Forensic pathology is a sub-section of forensics pathology that specifies in determining the cause of death by examining a corpse. The autopsy is performed by a coroner or medical examiner, usually during the investigation of criminal law cases and civil law cases in some jurisdictions. Coroners and medical examiners are also frequently asked to confirm the identity of a corpse. Also see forensic medicine.
Forensics – What is it?
Investigating and analyzing computer systems used in violation of laws
Investigating computer systems for compliance with company policies
Investigating computers systems that have been attacked. (part of incident response)

Supported and approved by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the Technical Working Group on Education in Fraud and Forensic Accounting (TWG) is a diverse group of content area experts: professionals working across the broad spectrum of activities that constitute fraud prevention, deterrence, detection, investigation, and remediation (hereinafter "fraud") and forensic accounting.
Identification of Biased Environmental Data
Coincidence, error, studied ignorance, or junk science?
An expert opinion is worth no more than the factual data upon which it is based. The critical review of environmental data is therefore essential for judging the reliability of the factual information. Environmental data relied upon to form an opinion should be of a sufficient known quality to withstand the scientific and legal challenges relative to the purpose of the data collection.
Forensic engineering is the application of engineering principles and methodologies
to answer questions of fact. These questions of fact are usually associated with accidents, crimes, catastrophic events, degradation of property,
and various types of failures.
With digital evidence, technology is always needed to process the digital data and therefore
the only diﬀerence between a forensic and a non-forensic investigation of digital data is whether
or not the evidence can be used in a court of law. A forensic investigation is a process that uses
science and technology to develop and test theories, which can be entered into a court of law, to
answer questions about events that occurred.
Malware-type clickbots infect machines in order to achieve
IP diversity, and their trafﬁc may or may not be as easily iden-
tiﬁable as that generated by for-sale clickbots. Clickbot.A is
a malware-type clickbot, and is identiﬁed as a trojan by some
anti-virus packages. The result of a VirusTOTAL scan, which
runs various anti-virus scanners, on the Clickbot.A binary pro-
duced the results shown in Table 1 in the Appendix, as noted
by SANS handler Swa Frantzen .
Many of the popular virus scanners includingMcAfee, Sophos,
and Symantec did not detect that Clickbot.
While the engineering profession is certainly not immune from the same dishonesty that plagues other professions and mankind in general, the basis
for disagreement is often not due to corruption or malfeasance.
