With increasing importance, mobile forensics is becoming ever more critical to criminal and civil investigations due to the increasing complexity of top of the range smart phones and tablets. Such mobile devices are capable of storing vast amounts of data inconceivable just a few years ago. As a result, the recovery of this mobile data is becoming increasingly important to all types of professional investigators. Police forces UK wide tell us that their Mobile Phone examiners are amongst the busiest people in their organisation. One particular trend we’ve seen in the last 2 years is Police Computer Forensics Examiners being re-trained in order to support the Phone examiners and help with the workload and the increased importance of the data they recover.
