Piecing digital evidence together...
Mobile Phone Forensics
Mobile Phone Forensics, also known as Mobile Phone Analysis is a form of science concerned with the systematic examination of mobile phone handsets and all attached media, such as SIM cards and memory storage cards. It is similar to Computer Forensics in that a wide variety of data can be retrieved, including call registers, text messages and multimedia messages.
With approximately 70% of adults estimated to own a mobile phone, it is perhaps not surprising that Mobile Phone Forensic Analysis is being used in an increasingly large number of civil and legal matters.
IntaForensics offers the following fixed-cost Mobile Phone Forensic Analysis services:
Automatic SIM card and handset memory analysis:
This form of analysis is suitable when the mobile telephone is supported by one or more pieces of forensic software, which allows the phone's data to be extracted automatically. A manual verification is then performed to confirm the extracted data is complete and correct.
Manual SIM card and handset memory analysis: This form of Mobile Phone Analysis is used when the mobile telephone is not supported by any forensic software, or the support offered is limited to such a degree that very little data can be extracted automatically. In such cases, the analyst must manually examine a handset and digitally record each of the screens. All images taken will be produced both electronically and as a paper based report, while any audio or video located will be recorded and presented in a widely playable format.
Memory card analysis: IntaForensics supports a wide variety of mobile phone models from a range of manufacturers, including Nokia, Motorola, Siemens, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Sagem, Sharp, Sendo, NEC and LG and many more. In addition, our analysts are able to fully examine and report on all SIM cards and removable media.
All work completed by IntaForensics, follows strict quality assurance guidelines, which includes the use of an auditable trail and peer approved processes to ensure that the integrity and continuity of the evidence is maintained. This means that the accuracy of the copied data is verified and every step of the analysis fully documented in strict adherence to the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) guidelines for the handling of computer based evidence.
