Over the past decade mobile phones have enjoyed a rapid rise in both personal and consumer use. Coupled with their technological advancements, extracting data from these phones has become a focal point of many investigations.
Data extraction from these devices can be challenging, at best, however. Fragmentation in operating systems, devices, connection types, and more create an ever evolving and shifting landscape for analysts. In this webinar we’re going to discuss differences between two of the main mobile platforms, Android and iOS, specifically pertaining to challenges in forensic acquisitions from these devices. We will then discuss ways to circumvent those challenges. We will also discuss future security features coming in iOS and Android and how both may affect the forensic landscape.
