Description

  • “This unique book delves down into the capabilities of hiding and _ obscuring_ data object within the Windows Operating System. However, one of the most noticeable and credible features of this publication is, it takes the reader from the very basics and background of data hiding techniques, and run’s on the reading-road to arrive at some of the more complex methodologies employed for concealing data object from the human eye and/or the investigation . As a practitioner in the Digital Age, I can see this book siting on the shelves of Cyber Security Professionals, and those working in the world of Digital Forensics- it is a recommended read, and is in my opinion a very valuable asset to those who are interested in the landscape of _ unknown unknowns_ . This is a book which may well help to discover more about that which is not in _ immediate_ view of the onlooker, and open up the mind to expand its imagination beyond its accepted limitations of known knowns .” – John Walker, CSIRT/SOC/Cyber Threat Intelligence Specialist

In many legal cases a disgruntled employee would successfully steal company private data despite all security measures implemented using simple digital hiding techniques.

Computer forensic investigators, law enforcements officers, intelligence services and IT security professionals need a guide to tell them where criminals can conceal their data in Windows® OS & multimedia files and how they can discover concealed data quickly and retrieve it in a forensic way.
