FOR PROF TUTOR ONLY!!!! Do not message me if you are not him!!!


For the purpose of this Project, you are still the InfoSec Specialist for the Greenwood Company. Consider this project a continuation of the work you performed in Project 1. In this portion of the investigation, you are ONLY collecting the physical evidence. You will NOT be handling the digital data during this stage of the investigation. (This step will be discussed in the Final Project.) You should limit your “care and handling” of each piece of evidence to the physical handling of the digital container.

With the scenario in mind, you are to write a report to your supervisor, thoroughly providing a response to the following questions (in paragraph format, properly citing outside research, where appropriate) to both parts of the project:

Part I: Overview/Case Summary

  1. Write a short summary of the incident that has occurred and establish what permissions/authorities you have before you search Mr. McBride’s former Company work area.

Part II: Physical Evidence Acquisition:

  1.  Look at the photo of Mr. McBride’s work area. (See file attachment Work_Area.jpg)  Identify three (3) potential items of digital evidence you see in the photo.
  • For EACH item of digital evidence you identified, describe in first person what steps you took to collect the items (with emphasis on your care and handling of that item consistent with digital forensic best practices described in the module content/weekly readings). You should documenting these steps in a detailed way that will mitigate questions, concerns, or a basic lack of information that will call your processes into question in court.
  • For each item, explain what potential use that item would be to your investigation (e.g., what type of data that item might hold.)
  1. Look at the photo of Mr. McBride’s work area. (See file attachment Work_Area.jpg)  Identify three (3) potential items of non-digital evidence you see in the photo.
  • For EACH item of non-digital evidence you identified, describe how you would collect each item, within standards and best practices described in your module content/weekly readings.

  • For each item, explain what potential use that item would be to your investigation (e.g., what type of data that item might hold.)

  1. Detail in your report how you secured the collection of evidence after removing it from the original scene (the desk) and prior to sending it for analysis. Describe the security procedures in place as well as any environmental protections (specific to computer/digital devices) that are in place within the storage area.

  2. Look at the Evidence Custody Document (See file attachment Evidence Custody Document.doc) and item photographs (Items-seized (pics).pptx). Read the Evidence Custody Document prepared by one of your co-workers in which he is attempting to document the seizure of the three (3) items pictured in the accompanying photos. Did your co-worker adequately describe each item? What could you add to the descriptions, and for which items (based on what you see in the photos) to make them more complete and serve as an example to your co-worker of what they SHOULD look like (how they should be described)?

  • The submission should have a cover page, including course number, course title, title of paper, student’s name, date of submission, and submit to the assignments folder.

  • Format: 12-point font, double-space, one-inch margins;

  • Use the following format as your project file name:  StudentLastName_Project 1.docx (Example: Jenkins_Project 1.docx)
  • It is mandatory that you do some research, and utilize at least 3 outside resources! You must have a reference page that is consistent with APA citation style (see https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ for help).
