Description of the Incident

After completing the forensic examination report of the suspected John Smith's disk image, I was able to discover evidence of theft of "Proprietary Information" and various indications that Mr. Smith had searched for possible high-end homes and luxurious lite car, and money information. Additionally, other data indicated that Smith was searching for methods of money transfer. Files showing Mr. Smith's plan are such as "confidential info. Pdf", "Offshore Bank Account Inquiry. docx, and Luxury Bungalow. Pdf. This evidence shows that Mr. Smith was planning to sell the "proprietary information" for commercial gain.

Summary of Findings

During the investigation, I managed to produce a piece of evidence which I believe is linked to John Smith to the crime of stealing the "proprietary information." I also managed to obtain eight pieces of contingent evidence leading to believe that Smith was planning to sell the "Proprietary Information" to earn some money. Every piece of evidence found displayed reasoning of its significance to suggest that Mr. Smith was associated with the accusations against him.
