Resources for Digital Forensics Labs

I came across Interpol’s Global Guidelines for Digital Forensics Laboratories today and wanted to post a few resources that might be helpful to anyone running, working in, or setting up a DFIR lab.

I’ve made this post a wiki. If you know of other helpful resources, please feel free to add them!

Admittedly, it may be outdated on some of the standards. The authors were talking about a new edition last year, but it hasn’t happened yet.

Yes, I was the Tech Editor! :wink:
No, I don’t get any royalties. :frowning:

Very cool, Frank. Just added this to the main post!

Looking this book up, I came across other books you co-authored. Very impressive—I am adding a few of these to my reading list :+1:t2:
