USB Boot Drives Recommended by Computer Crime Author

USB Boot Drives Recommended by Computer Crime Author

In his latest U.S. best seller computer crime book Open Source Intelligence Techniques, fifth Edition, author Michael Bazzell states “…disposable USB operating systems are the future of all online research. I believe that every online investigation computer should have a selection of removable operating systems ready to boot at any time.” USB boot drives like Windows To Go, Linux To Go, and Multi-profile To Go are commercial, reusable solutions for security professionals to address incident response and research.

Mr. Bazzell is an 18 year government computer crime investigator and former agent for the FBI Cyber Crimes Task Force and the current advisor for the television hacker drama Mr. Robot.  His books are used be several government agencies as training manuals for intelligence gathering and securing personal information.
