Task 3: Research Project (5 marks)
You have been assigned a digital forensics case to investigate involving a potential monetary fraud in an organisation. The CTO of the organisation has given you access to the workstation and other necessary hardware, e.g. USB, of one of his employees who she thinks is potentially involved in this fraud. Your job as a digital forensics examiner is to conduct this investigation. You are required to create a (investigation) plan and describe the standard practice procedure that is used in such investigations. Your plan must include the procedures for collecting the digital data, securing the evidence that you may collect and then describing the method to validate the collected data, e.g. calculating hash values and specifying the hash algorithm that you intend to use, e.g. SHA-3, MD5 etc. You can make some reasonable assumptions if required when describing your plan / procedures.
Deliverable: Write a 500-1000 word report that outlines the investigation plan, procedures to secure the digital evidence, and data validation methods.
Note: Combine deliverable’s of all three tasks mentioned above in a single document (only MS Word (preferable) or pdf, please note other formats e.g. *.zip, *.rar etc are NOT allowed) and then submit that one / single document through Turnitin.
