Cell Phone Forensics — When Every Byte of Data Matters

In the information age, every byte of data matters. Cell phones are capable of storing a wealth of personal information, often intentionally, and sometimes unintentionally. This holds true for almost all mobile devices, such as PDAs and iPhone as well. Cell phone forensic experts specialize in the forensic retrieval of data from cell phones and other mobile devices in a manner that preserves the evidence under forensically acceptable conditions, ensuring that it is court-admissible.

    For over 4 years, CFK has been a leader in the field of computer forensics.

A cell phone forensic investigation includes possible full data retrieval dependent upon the cell phone or PDA model. The cell phone and PDA forensic engineers at CFK will conduct a thorough examination of the data found on the cell phone’s SIM/USIM, the cell phone body itself, and any optional memory cards.

Some of the kinds of data that may be retrieved and examined during a cell phone forensic investigation, even after being deleted, include:

• Call times; dialed and received calls, and call duration
• Text messages recovery of SMS message recovery
• Contact names & phone numbers
• Address book entries; residential addresses and email addresses
• Photos & graphics
• Videos

Law enforcement officials and legal firms realize the importance of evidence contained on cell phones and other mobile devices, and how it can greatly affect the outcome of a trial. Whether working to document evidence of “white collar crime” or tasked by law enforcement to extract data for a criminal trial, the integrity of the firm selected for cell phone forensics is as important as the integrity of the data recovered. More and more court cases are being won with the proper submittal of electronic evidence, so it’s imperative that the cell phone forensic investigator understands the legal issues and imperatives surrounding electronic evidence gathering.
