Hi All,

I am new to IT forensics and would like to seek advice on the best source of information I can read to develop a background on IT forensics. I plan to work data recovery from mobile devices, hard drives and other electronic media using the encase enterprise suite. (i hope this is the best tool to use)

Secondly I would like to get advice on the ideal software packages for
- password recovery
- email fraud investigations.

I look forward to your responses.

Bawse

What is your background in IT? What experience do you have with mobile devices? Hard drives? Other electronic media? You need a background in those areas before you jump straight to forensics. What kind of legal training do you have?

EnCase is a good suite, but it will never be your only tool especially when it comes to mobile devices. Also I would recommend doing some research on opinions of the current version.

There is no ideal software for either category,there is just the tool that works on the data set you have. What is your budget?
