Mobile phones and such devices have rapidly become an integral part of peoples everyday activities and repositories of ever increasing amounts of personal data. It is hardly surprising therefore that where the need arises for a forensic data investigation, an individual’s personal or work mobile phone can be as great a source of evidentual data as their computer. The field of mobile phone forensic investigations has therefore undergone rapid development to keep pace with phone technology and the evidential potential this creates.
Datlabs offers a comprehensive range of mobile phone forensic investigations, analysis and recovery covering the widest range of phones from the most basic calls and texts only models to the latest in smartphone technology. The range of data that can be revealed would include (amongst many others):
- Calls and SMS text message histories
- Contacts information
- Social media communication
- Mobile internet browsing and search histories
- Photographs & videos
- GPS and SatNav histories and cell-site analysis
- Interactions with computers and other electronic devices
Deleted data can potentially be recovered as well as data from damaged and/or faulty devices even where the user may have attempted to render the data inaccessable. The processes used to gain access to data in these and other scenarios would encompass logical, physical and chip-off extractions as appropriate, using the latest equipment, application, and techniques that go way beyond traditional plug-and-play approaches.
We have invested heavily in a state of the art mobile device examination laboratory utilising multiple cutting edge methods for extracting data from mobile phones and tablets, including the most widely used forensically sound solutions employed by law enforcement and the military and some that they don’t, or cannot implement due to lack of training and/or resources, such as JTAG and Chip-off. These advanced methods allow us access to the data on handsets others cannot reach – For example PIN locked BlackBerrys or phones that are inoperable due to by water exposure or physical damage.
