Write a short summary of the incident that has occurred


Project Assignment- Investigative Collection of Evidence

For the purpose of this second Project, you are still the Data Security Analyst for Allied Technology Systems. 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, documenting and reporting. 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 item/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 Part I and Part II 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. Jackson's former Company work area.

Part II: Physical Evidence Acquisition:

2. Look at the photo of Mr. Jackson'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 the steps that would be taken to collect the items (with emphasis on the care and handling of each item consistent with digital forensic best practices described in the module content/weekly readings) at the scene. You should document 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.

• Also for EACH item you identified, explain what potential use the item would be within the investigation (e.g., what type of data that item might hold, and what kind of evidence represents for prosecution.)

3. Look at the photo of Mr. Jackson'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 the steps that would be taken to collect the items (with emphasis on the care and handling of each item consistent with digital forensic best practices described in the module content/weekly readings) at the scene. You should document 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.

• Also for EACH item you identified, explain what potential use the item would be within the investigation (e.g., what type of data that item might hold, and what kind of evidence represents for prosecution.)

4. Detail in your report how your seized evidence from Questions two and three are secured and stored after removing it from the original scene (the work area) 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.

5. 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 they are 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 be added 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)?

Format your assignment according to the following formatting requirements:

1. The answer should be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides.

2. The response also include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student's name, the course title, and the date. The cover page is not included in the required page length.

3. Also Include a reference page. The Citations and references should follow APA format. The reference page is not included in the required page length.
