DFI, LLC. – digital forensic investigation company

Final Exam Scenario
You are a digital forensics investigator for DFI, LLC. – digital forensic investigation company. You have just been contracted by American Marketing Systems (AMS) to conduct a clandestine investigation in support of a suspected internal skimming operation involving one or more people in the marketing department or accounts receivable.  AMS has reason to suspect that one or more employees are stealing from the company.

AMS is just aware that there is a problem, but they don’t know what the problem is or how the skimming operation is being conducted. Your job is to determine if a skimming operation exists, and if so, who is involved and how they are conducting the operation.

The general method that DFI and AMS agreed upon is to place you into a “created” position with IT as a systems administrator so that you can conduct the investigation under cover of your system administrator role. Nobody within AMS knows of your role as a forensic investigator except the VP of IT, the company controller, and the CEO.  You will only communicate with these individuals off site so as to not blow your cover.
