SQL Server Forensics Book

I logged into Safari today to download some chapters I want to be able to review when I'm offline. I saw in the new titles there's a forthcoming book called SQL Server Forensics Analysis and it's by one of my co-authors from How to Cheat at Securing SQL Server 2005, Kevvie Fowler. The book is due out in December, but Safari has it available in Rough Cuts form if you have that access with your subscription. Thankfully, I do.

Many DBAs don't tend to worry about the forensics side of things, but in today's world, databases are the prime target. As a result, DBAs will likely get brought into a forensics effort even if they aren't primary members of their organization's computer incident response team (CIRT). So this sort of book is great to see coming out. I know I'm looking forward to it. Mr. Fowler has already contributed research and presentations in this arena which are readily available. They are full of great information and I've linked them for those interested.
