Your team is tasked with analyzing and documenting requirements for

Your team is tasked with analyzing and documenting requirements for constructing a standard computer forensics laboratory for a recently launched company XYZ, Inc.. XYZ, Inc is experiencing extremely rapid growth with over 100 employees and continuing to hire new talent. XYZ specializes in cybersecurity related to the critical infrastructure industry. Your teams analysis should take into consideration physical, technical, and legal requirements related to the computer forensics laboratory. In addition, you should consider potential lab certification requirements in this requirements analysis. After your requirements analysis is completed your team will develop a forensic laboratory proposal for the company. This proposal should include physical, environmental, technical hardware/software, and personnel recommendations. The proposal should also include the estimated initial and projected 3 year annual costs for this new computer forensics laboratory. The budget costs should include physical operating environment, technical assets, and personnel salary costs. The company has recently received venture funding specially for this tasking and its initial budget limitations for this forensics laboratory are as follows: Initial start-up costs $750,000 Maximum annual three (3) year operating/update costs $575,000 per year 
 

What are two items to consider when creating a malware analysis environment?

Question 1: What are two items to consider when creating a malware analysis environment?
Could malware detect and react differently if a potential malware analysis tool/environment is detected? Give two possible examples.
Question 2: Give an example of an incident where it was discovered that a RAT was found in a corporate environment.
Identify one method a forensic investigator may use to identify a potential RAT program?

Albert, Bert, Clark, and David own equal interests

Albert, Bert, Clark, and David own equal interests in the capital and profits of an LLC that is taxed as a partnership. The LLC is a calendar-year taxpayer. For each of the following scenarios, determine (i) whether or not the LLC terminates and (ii) the tax consequences to the members:

a. Albert, Bert, and Clark simultaneously sell their entire interests in the LLC to David.
b. Albert, Bert, Clart and David simultaneously sell their entire interests in the LLC to Mr. Garrison, and unrelated third party.

c. On December 1, the LLC sells all its assets in exchange for a note of the purchaser. After December 1, the LLC merely holds the note and collects interest until March 31 of the following year, at which time the note is paid off and the LLC distributes the proceeds to the members in liquidation of the partnership.

d. Albert, Bert, and Clark form a new LLC. The new LLC purchases all of the assets of the old LLC, which liquidates by distributing the proceeds of the sale to the members.

e. Albert and Bert sell their entire interests to Clark and David, respectively, on the same day. Would your answer be different if Albert sells his interest six months after Bert sells his interest? One year and six months after Bert sells his interest?

f. Albert sells his interest to Bert, and, six months later, Bert sells Albert’s interest to Clark. Would your answer be different if Bert sells Albert’s interest to Mr. Garrison?

g. Albert and Bert each sell their entire interest in the LLC’s capital but only half of their respective interests in the partnership’s profits.

h. The partnership completely liquidates Albert’s and Bert’s interests on the same day.

i. Albert and Bert contribute their partnership interests to a corporation in exchange for stock of the corporation in a transaction governed by IRS 351.

j. Albert and Bert transfer their partnership interests on the same day to Mr. Garrison as a gift.

k. Albert and Bert each sell all but a de minimis amount of their LLC interests to Clark and David. A year and a day later, they sell the remaining portions to Clark and David.

l. The LLC converts to a general partnership.
