MSDF 633 Computer Crimes and Digital Forensics Portfolio Assignment


This short, graduate-level, scholarly research and writing assignment has as its primary goal the

opportunity for each student to evince that they have attained the course’s Learner Outcomes, which

represent a subset of the Program Learning Outcomes that apply to anyone who’s earned their M.S.

Digital Forensics degree from the University of the Cumberlands.

The applicable PLOs in MSDF 633 are:

 Intelligently discuss the nexus of technology and cybercrimes.
 Attain a comprehensive understanding of the vast field of cybercrime and its varied categories.
 Employ digital forensics concepts toward legally solving criminal endeavors perpetrated online.
 Learn law enforcement’s responses to cybercrimes, as well as the policies and legislation meant

to confine the actions of deviants and criminals operating online.


This is a research and writing assignment. You must conduct scholarly research. That means, generally,

that in order to learn the information necessary to answer the call of the assignment you should focus on

peer-reviewed, scholarly articles. Resources such as Wikipedia, industry white papers, blogs, magazine

articles, etc., may help you understand the topics you’re researching, but their value does not rise to the

level of such work. The UC library, particularly at the Research Guide for CIS and Nexis Uni (focused

on law), and Google Scholar are two ready resources, the former of which you pay for with your UC


Scholarly research also means that your submitted work must conform to APA style guidelines. Purdue

University’s OWL, referenced numerous times in the program, is a great resource for APA lessons.

The assignment should result in an APA paper with a minimum of four pages given to its Main Body,

and no more than eight. The page requirement does not relate to Title Page, Abstract, and References

pages. The paper should address the following:

1. From the course Section II: Field of Cybercrimes, select one area of cybercrime that frames your

2. Discuss it by describing any comparative traditional crime—e.g., trespass as compared to DDoS.
3. Next, create a digital forensics investigation plan that may be applied to solve your selected

cybercrime. Ensure that it is detailed enough to prove your knowledge of the discipline as a tool

to help solve a crime, while being general enough that, perhaps, it could serve as a template for a

law enforcement division.

4. Lastly, discuss a legal case, criminal law (state or federal), and/or an article from a legal journal
that relates to your chosen area of cybercrime.

A successful paper will include excellent writing that covers each of those four areas, and also proves

that the author attained the four PLOs listed above.

Good Luck!
