|Abstract:||Forensic specialists periodically encounter unusual devices and new technologies normally not envisaged as having immediate relevance from a digital forensics perspective. The objective of the guide is twofold: to help organizations evolve appropriate policies and procedures for dealing with Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), and to prepare forensic specialists to deal with new situations when they are encountered.
