Forensic Analysis of Mobile Devices

When looking to answer questions, mobile devices can yield tremendous data that lead to insight.

Mobile devices are increasingly common in adjudication ranging from criminal prosecution to corporate intellectual property litigation. This seminar discusses the use of electronic information in litigation broadly, with particular emphasis on data beyond documents.

In some cases, mobile devices like iPhones and BlackBerrys can be analyzed even without physical access to them.

After considering analytical possibilities with forensic analysis of non-document data, we focus on the issues unique to mobile devices. We start with an overview of the data available on mobile devices, how to find that mobile devices might have data of interest, and how to use mobile device data. We conclude with a case study involving intellectual property litigation centered around the use of BlackBerrys to transfer intellectual property from an old employer to a new one.
