Mobile Phone Forensics
Specialists in the preservation, extraction and analysis of data from mobile phones.
Mobile phone forensics has become more prevalent, with smartphone devices increasing in performance, data storage capacity and overall capabilities. Operating across the UK, Ireland and internationally, our digital forensic investigators are specialists in mobile phone investigations. We preserve, extract, analyse and report the electronic data retrieved from mobile devices for use in criminal, civil, corporate and legal aid matters.
Following strict forensic methodology on every investigation undertaken and the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines, ensures that any extracted data is forensically sound and can be used as admissible evidence in legal proceedings.
Our senior case managers will guide you through each stage of the comprehensive examination process, removing any complex jargon and ensuring you’re kept up to date at each phase.
Depending on the case objectives of the client, it is possible to retrieve both live and deleted data from a smart phone.
JTAG involves the disassembly of a mobile phone and the connection to test points or components on the motherboard in order to read data from the handset. Connection can be made using specialist adapters, by micro-soldering wires or a combination of the two. Wires can be de-soldered after data extraction to return the handset to its prior state. Using this method, we can extract data from handsets unsupported by forensic software along with PIN, pattern or password protected phones.
Chip-Off involves the removal of the flash memory chip from a mobile phone and the use of specialist hardware and software to read the data from it. Using this method, we can extract data from handsets unsupported by forensic software or JTAG along with PIN, pattern or password protected phones and damaged or otherwise non-working handsets.
