  • Submit the Final Report for you Forensics Project here.
  • Your Final Report should be an MS Word document, at least six pages in length.
  • Your forensics report should be about a fictitious company going through any of the scenarios learned in this class.
  • Use hypothetical questions to guide and support your opinion. Hypothetical questions are based on factual evidence and should include only those facts supporting your opinion or conclusion.

    1. Abstract
    2. Table of contents
    3. Body of report
