From field to lab learn what can and can’t be done. Whether you hire a firm or you process the smartphone yourself these keys can make or break your case.
Many times, additional insights and potential evidence is available on these devices that can be the key to finding the data needed to complete an investigation. The bad news is that investigators have an entire new set of challenges including encryption, acquiring a physical image, understanding the various file systems, Apps and all of their data, and the potential that the suspect may remotely wipe the data off the mobile device before it is examined. The headaches are endless, but so can the rewards.
