Responses to Essay Questions Name Institution Affiliation ESSAY 1 Booting the system and ensuring the file log is secured is very critical in forensic analysis Clarke (2010). Provided with a computer to source forensic information I would start by booting the system in safe mode. This would allow me to access the computer hard disk even when I don’t have the password to access the computer. Secondly this would enable me to make sure the information within the system is not lost during the booting process. By accessing the hard disk of the computer I would be able to retrieve the deleted file logs. Furthermore I would be able to access the browser history that can reveal if the suspect was actually watching inappropriate materials. I would check the free and slack space because they are the core concepts in the e-discovery. This is because when the files are softening the people into accepting the changes which are about to be executed in an organization. I would keep the 30 programmers under the change management practice. In the Journal of Management Information Systems Kahn & Garceau (1985) argue that employees play an essential part in the implementation of the change. By putting the programmers under the change management practices It would enable me to make them see sense in the recommended changes hence they can help me in impacting the difference in the whole organization.
