Scenario Assessment


Choose one of the following scenarios and create a slide presentation of approximately 16 slides demonstrating your approach to solving the issue you have chosen.

  1. Scenario 1. Joe Smith owns a construction company. Yesterday a subcontractor calls him saying that he needs a replacement check for the last job he completed. Joe looks up the job on his accounting software and says he'll reissue the check for $412,750. The contractor tells Joe the check was for $112,750. Joe hangs up and starts to look for the checkbook and company ledger. It's nowhere to be found. He calls you to investigate. How would you proceed? List the steps you would take to help Joe. Include a chain of custody report and discuss what tools you might use.
  2. Scenario 2. You are the computer forensics investigator for a law firm. The firm acquired a new client who was discharged from her job for inappropriate material discovered on her computer. She swears she never accessed the material. What questions should you ask her? How would you proceed? Explain how you would convince a jury that there was reasonable doubt that she accessed this information. Hint: Find similar cases to cite.
  3. Scenario 3. Find a story about a cyberbullying suicide. Read the story and formulate a presentation on the current laws in the state the crime was committed in and why it may have to be prosecuted in a different state.
  4. Scenario 4. You are asked to investigate the case of a missing girl. Her parents are not sure what happened to her. It is possible that she ran away from home, but she may have been kidnapped. She spent a lot of time in her room on the Internet. What questions should you ask the girl's parents? What items would you ask to take from the home? Who else would you speak with?
  5. Scenario 5. Perhaps the scariest story of insufficient computer security and cybercrime yet is the true tale of Phantom Dialer. He accessed university and military research centers, banks, even the computers that controlled central California's dams. His actions could have put tens of thousands of lives at risk. And what makes it so frightening is that he was not a criminal or computing genius. He was a curious, persistent, and mentally-challenged young man who never truly understood his own actions. If this were your case to investigate, how would you proceed?

The assignment should include the following:

  • An in-depth submission that should be free of spelling and grammar errors in APA format.
  • A professional presentation containing approximately 16 slides demonstrating your approach to solving the issue.
  • Your presentation must be thought provoking, have well developed ideas and/or opinions, and should reference any supporting material from the text, lecture or other sources you have used to complete the assignment.
  • You may use your text or the internet as a reference, but remember to cite your sources.
  • You will be assessed on the rationale you use in addressing the questions/issue posted, and how well you justify your argument regarding this issue.
