As part of the duties of a digital forensics examiner, creating an investigation plan is a standard practice. Write a 3 to 4 (not including title or reference page) page paper that describes how you would organize an investigation for a potential fraud case. In addition, list methods you plan to use to validate the data collected from drives and files such as Word and Excel, with hashes. Specify the hash algorithm you plan to use, such as MD5 or SHA1. Make sure you follow the grading rubric and write your paper in APA format.
- 3–4 pages in length (excluding cover page, abstract, and reference list)
- Include at least two peer reviewed sources that are properly cited
