There is often information or evidence relative to an investigation that is over looked because it is contained in a cell phone or smart phone. This is important both in the business world where phones are supplied, and in the private and civil world where the information may be used in court proceedings.
Today’s cell phone technology is capable of storing as much digital information as some computers could store just 15 years ago. They store digital images, documents, videos, spreadsheets, and much more. Most cell phone users store appointments and contacts on their phones. With smart phones users can access their Facebook accounts, Twitter accounts, instant message accounts and often store information they may want to have readily available to them.
This makes cell phones and smart phones just as important to an investigation as a computer.
An example of some of the information DMS is capable of extracting from most phones:
- Call logs
- Text Messages
- Email w/o attachments
- Blackberry Messenger contacts and chat
- Blackberry information
- IPhone information
- Installed applications
- Paired Bluetooth devices
- Physical and Logical information
- Deleted data
A proper forensic investigation requires diligent and comprehensive examination of all digital mediums used by the suspect. Phone forensics should be seriously considered by all potential DMS clients.
