Abstract: Advanced Mobile Forensics: Overcoming Physical Challenges with Laboratory Services
The use of smartphones is growing faster than any other storage technology. Explore how technologies involved with mobile devices pose new challenges to forensic practitioners, the inner workings of the newest smartphones and best practices for extracting as much forensically sound information as possible for use in civil and criminal cases. Follow case studies from DriveSavers to get an inside look at laboratory capabilities such as JTAGing and chip-off, and learn how you can utilize these practices in your own mobile forensic efforts. Presented by Rene Novoa, Senior Manager of eDiscovery and digital forensics at DriveSavers.
