Abstract: Digital evidence is information and data of value to an investigation that is stored on, received, or transmitted by an electronic device. This guide is intended for anyone who may encounter a crime scene involving digital evidence, everyone who processes a crime scene that includes digital evidence, everyone who supervises personnel who process digital evidence, and everyone who manages an organization that processes such crime scenes. The guide is broken down into seven distinct chapters that include (1) the types, description and potential evidence of electronic devices, (2) investigative tools and equipment, (3) securing and evaluating the scene, (4) documenting the scene, (5) evidence collection, (6) packaging, transporting, and storage of digital evidence, and (7) electronic crime and digital evidence considerations by crime category (i.e., child abuse and exploitation, counterfeiting, e-mail threats, harassment, and stalking, identity theft, prostitution, and telecommunication fraud).
