Unfortunately, as the suspects were being brought into the US for their trial, a cache of child pornography was found on one of the suspect’s devices.

The assignment must be a minimum of 4-full pages in length with a minimum of 3-outside sources.
1) Unfortunately, as the suspects were being brought into the US for their trial, a cache of child pornography was found on one of the suspect’s devices. You are now investigating a new incident where child pornography was found on the computer. The suspect claims he received a pop up containing child pornography and clicked on it. How can you determine whether the person’s story is true. Be sure to provide details of the forensic procedures.
2) Additionally, you need to make an ethical decision in this case. Do you continue forward with the case, and delay dealing with the child porn incident, do you ignore the child porn to keep the case focused on the OPM attack, or do you throw a wrench into the primary case with this new evidence. Make your decision and then defend why that decision was made and is just.

Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was enacted by Congress in 2000 to address concerns about children’s access to obscene or harmful content over the Internet. CIPA imposes certain requirements on schools or libraries that receive discounts for Internet access or internal connections through the E-rate program.
Schools and libraries subject to CIPA are required to adopt and implement an Internet safety policy addressing:
1) access to minors to inappropriate matter on the Internet
2) the safety and security of minors when using electronic mail, chat rooms and other forms of direct electronic communications
3) unauthorized access, including so-called “hacking” and other unlawful activities by minors online
4) unauthorized disclosure, use, and dissemination of personal information regarding minors;
5) measures designed to restrict minors’ access to material harmful to minors
