ISE 640 Final Project Two Guidelines and Rubric
Overview Final Project Two is the creation of a memo to non-technical stakeholders. While these stakeholders will have access to the report you created, they are looking for your expertise in extracting the most salient information for their purposes. They are coordinating with the legal team on next steps for the company and the creation of a press release that will position this incident for the public.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcome:
ISE-640-03: Demonstrate the use of appropriate reporting techniques in communicating the results of forensic investigations to non-expert stakeholders
