CIS 152 Case Project2

Please read this below scenario carefully, then respond to the questions that follow:

Henry Magruder made a mistake—he left a flash drive at the coffee station. Later, when Iris Majwubu was topping off her mug with fresh tea while taking a breather from her current project, she saw the unlabeled drive on the counter. Being the helpful sort, she picked it up, intending to return it to the person who’d left it behind.

Expecting to find a program from someone on the development team or a project management schedule, Iris slotted the drive in her computer. The system automatically ran a virus scan before opening the file explorer program. She had been correct in assuming the drive contained SLS company data files. There were lots of them. She opened a file at random: names, addresses, and Social Security numbers appeared on her screen. These were not the test records she expected; they looked more like confidential payroll data. The next file she picked was full of what seemed to be customers’ credit card numbers. Concerned, she found a readme.txt file and opened it. It read:

Jill, see files on this drive. Hope they meet your expectations. Wire money to account as arranged. Rest of data sent on payment.

Iris realized that someone was selling sensitive company data. She looked back at the directory listing and saw that the files spanned the range of every department at Sequential Label and Supply—everything from customer financial records to shipping invoices. She opened another file and saw that it contained only a sampling of the relevant data. Whoever did this had split the data into two parts. That made sense: just a sample to see the type of data and then payment on delivery.

Now, who did the drive belong to? She opened the file properties option of the readme.txt file. The file owner was listed as “hmagruder.” That must be Henry Magruder, the developer two cubes over in the next aisle. Iris pondered her next action.

Case Exercises

Iris called the company’s security hotline. The hotline is an anonymous way to report suspicious activity or abuse of company policy, although Iris chose to identify herself. The next morning, she was called to a meeting with an investigator from corporate security, which led to more meetings with others from corporate security and then with the director of human resources and Gladys Williams, the CIO of SLS.
