Mobile forensics is the process of recovering data from mobile devices under secure conditions. This presents a challenge compared to forensic analysis of a typical workstation computer. Phone and device technology advances at a faster pace than other digital technology, and each phone manufacturer and OS provider has different architecture.
Getting at important data takes the knowledge base to understand the data flow and storage routines of these devices. Important recoverable data on a phone can include:
Call Histories, Times, And Durations
Photos & Videos
Social Media Posts
App Download Histories And Uses
When You Need Mobile Forensics
Individuals and organizations can find themselves in need of mobile forensic analysis for a number of reasons. Parents may suspect their child is having unwanted or inappropriate contact with someone. An individual may be experiencing cyber-stalking or harassment.
Companies may want a forensic analysis of key employee phones to make sure of appropriate use. This can include examinations for unwanted contact with competitors, or misuse of a phone for non-work use, like looking at porn or watching movies on company time.
