Task 2: Digital Forensics Report (20%) (20 marks)

In this major task you are assumed a digital forensics investigator and asked to prepare a digital forensic report for the following scenario:

You are investigating a possible intellectual property theft by a new employee of Superior Bicycles, Inc.  This employee, Tom Johnson, is the cousin of Jim Shu, an employee who had been terminated. Bob Aspen is an external contractor and investor who gets a strange e-mail from Terry Sadler about Jim Shu’s new project (shown in Figure 8-5 of the textbook on p. 350). Bob forwards the e-mail to Chris Robinson (the president of Superior Bicycles) to inquire about any special projects that might need capital investments.  Chris forwards the e-mail to the general counsel, Ralph Benson, asking him to look into it. He also forwards it to Bob Swartz, asking him to have IT look for any e-mails with attachments. After a little investigation, Bob Swartz forwards an e-mail IT found to Chris Robinson (shown in Figure 8-6 of the textbook on p. 350).
