Assignment 2: LASA 1: eDiscovery

Consider the following scenario:

You are a consultant working with businesses affected by security breach, internal or external to the network. You work specifically for an eDiscovery company. Your job is to analyze the tools and electronic detection systems used to identify and recover from a security breach and provide a path for organizations hit by the breach.

The goal of your analysis is to determine what the company did well in response to the breach; what they could have done differently; and what changes they need to make in the future to resolve the remaining issues the company faced as a result of the breach.


For this assignment, you will identify a security breach; describe the eDiscovery tools used to determine and locate the breach; and analyze the actions the team took in response to the breach. Finally, you will analyze and discuss the steps that could be taken in the future to avoid the breach.

From personal experience or from a case study (found online or using information technology magazines), identify a real-life security breach that:

  • Compromised      elements essential to the operation of a business
  • Required      the implementation of a business continuity plan
  • Required      the use of electronic tools to discover the breach and recover from it

Note: Be sure to select a security breach that has occurred since 2008.

Write a 7- to 9-page summary of the security breach that includes the following information.

  • Explain      the method of discovery.
  • Explore      electronic tools that were used to discover the breach and discuss their      usefulness in the discovery process.
  • Evaluate      the way the IT and disaster recovery team handled the situation.
  • Make      recommendations to prevent security breaches in the future, focusing      specifically on the tools used in the process of discovery. Be sure to      choose sources for recommendations or process changes that are credible in      the world of IT, such as scholarly sources or experts in security, often      featured in IT magazines. You should use at least three sources, not      including your textbook.

Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA); and display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
