Igital Forensics in the Criminal Justice System

For the purposes of this project, you are an employee of Widget Corporation, assigned as a technical specialist to the companys Intellectual Property and Compliance section.

In this case, assume you have gotten a report from Mr. Iam Helpful, Human Resources Specialist, Widget Corporation, of suspected child pornography on the laptop computer of Mr. Isure Didit, Marketing Department, Widget Corporation. Take a look at the photos in the Course Content area. Assume that you are collecting the two items (which belong to Widget Corporation but are assigned to Mr. Didit) seen in the photographs as evidence in what could become a criminal investigation (if analysis finds evidence of a crime that would then be presented to a law enforcement agency for further investigation and hopefully prosecution).

Using the forms provided in the Course Content area, document the collection and further treatment of the items in the photographs, in as descriptive a manner as is professional and appropriate for a case that may be referred to law enforcement. To satisfy the requirements of this project, you will submit three (3) items (plus any supporting documents):
1.A narrative of at least one (1) page (no cover or reference page is required; 12-point Normalfont and margins) in a professional report style (of your choosing) detailing (at a minimum): how the evidence was located (you can make up the details, consistent with the scenario); the nature and description of each piece of evidence; under what authority the evidence was seized (again, you may make up the details, consistent with the scenario); how the evidence was preserved or packaged; how the evidence will be transported from the scene; and how you plan to store the evidence safely pending examination. Fill out and use the hard drive and removable media worksheets (both attached for your convenience in the Course Content area) to support your narrative (please submit the completed worksheets along with your narrative).

Igital Forensics in the Criminal Justice System

From where did Capt. Kirk send his professor this email?
Is the professor working from the US Naval Academy or is he/she working out of another location?
Is the return email address consistent with the initial originating location/email?
If this case was an incident of Capt. Kirk alleging that a doctor in Baltimore had stolen his identification to take courses at the US Naval Academy while he was deployed in Vulcan territory (lets just assume this makes sense!), would you, as the expert computer forensic witness, feel comfortable using this email as evidence against the doctor? Why or why not? Please explain your answer.
