Cloud computing has the potential to become one of the most transformative developments in how information technology services are created, delivered, and accessed. However, cloud computing represents both opportunity and crisis for cybercrime investigation and digital forensics. With the rise of cyber attacks and various crimes in the highly complex multi-jurisdictional and multi-tenant cloud environments, there is an urgent need to extend the applications of investigation processes into the Cloud.

Objective of the Book
This book will introduce the new area of cloud forensics and collect research and case studies on current, state-of-the-art applications for investigation processes in cloud computing environments. Chapters may address cloud forensics applications from the perspectives of cloud providers, cloud customers, security architects, law enforcement agencies, research institutes, etc. This book will serve as a reference for cloud communities, digital forensics practitioners, researchers who wish to understand current issues, advancing research, and technical innovations in the field of cloud forensics.

Target Audience
Cloud technologists at all levels; Cloud incident response teams; Cloud system and security administrators and architects; Cloud security managers; Cloud computing researchers; Digital forensics practitioners; Digital forensics researchers; Law enforcement; Ethical hackers.

Recommended topics include, but are NOT limited to the following:
