Mobile Forensics: It’s more than just extracting data

10 Sep 2020

There is a tendency in the world of mobile forensic tools to focus on one thing: data acquisition. But what if you did all the work to extract the data and to generate a report for presentation in court, only to see the case dismissed because another small step in your process wasn’t considered forensically sound?

In his presentation, Simon Crawley covers multiple critical factors for producing and presenting digital evidence that holds up in court, including having the right processes, policies, tools and training. He also talks about how the EU-funded FORMOBILE consortium are working to create an end-to-end mobile forensic investigation chain, the ISO 17025 standard, and more.

Simon Crawley’s presentation also focuses on the bigger picture of how prosecutors, defence teams, courts and ultimately juries can understand and handle the complex field of digital forensics.
