Computer and Mobile Device Forensics

Mobile device forensics can be particularly challenging on a number of levels where a number of evidential and technical challenges exist. As a result of these challenges CP-SIIG’s service providers have access to a wide variety of tools which can be used to extract information and evidence from a variety of mobile devices. As no one tool or method can be utilised to acquire all of this material the array available to our providers will attain the result you seek.

All of our forensic examiners are able and qualified as expert witnesses in court and have the ability to ensure that forensic soundness is maintained to meet all legal requirements.

There is growing need for mobile forensics due to several reasons and some of the more prominent reasons include:

  • Use of mobile phones to store and transmit personal and corporate information.
  • Use of mobile phones in online transactions.
  • Law enforcement, criminals and mobile phone devices.

Mobile devices can be used to save several types of personal information such as contacts, photos, calendars and notes, SMS and MMS messages. Smartphones may additionally contain video, email, web browsing information, location information, and social networking messages and contacts.

Computer and mobile device forensics is a branch of digital forensics relating to recovery of digital evidence or data from a computer of a mobile device under forensically sound conditions. The phrase mobile device usually refers to mobile phones; however, it can also relate to any digital device that has both internal memory and communication ability, including PDA devices, GPS  devices and tablet computers. A proliferation of phones (particularly smartphones) on the consumer market has caused a demand for forensic examination of the devices, which could not be met by existing computer forensics techniques. CP-SIIG’s service providers independently maintain the most up to date technological equipment and strategies to acquire all evidence from all devices.
