Mobile Phone Forensics

Mobile phones are used for a lot more than just making telephone calls, they enable us to access information and stay in touch with friends, family and work colleagues whilst on the move using a variety of apps. A significant amount of actions performed on a mobile device leave a digital trail that can be forensically recovered to support an investigation, whether civil, criminal or corporate.

A substantial amount of evidence can be recovered using typical mobile device forensic tools in our forensic laboratories by trained analysts, to strict standard operating procedures and include:

Contacts Where would we be without our contact list in our phone?
SMS and chat messages Audit of your written communications
Web history and searches What you looked up on the web and when
Documents Today’s phones can hold many documents
Locations (GPS) When and where you have been
Call records Chit chat over phone, WhatsApp, Facetime etc.
Emails Email users send over 200 million messages per minute
Social media activity Twitter users tweet nearly 300,000 times per minute
Photos and recordings Instagram users post nearly 220,000 photos per minute
Application usage (timelines etc.) When your mobile was charged last, switched on, switched off etc.

As a result of our pioneering work in this discipline and the R&D carried out at CCL, we are able to offer advanced services using CCL’s bespoke mobile phone forensic software:

Deleted data recovery More information from more applications
Data recovery from damaged devices Intentional damage does not always prevent data extraction
Security lock (password) recovery/bypass Locked phones can often be accessed
User behaviour analysis A lifestyle can be established from phone usage
Malware/hacking investigations This can be checked to give piece of mind

Almost everyone owns a mobile device and unsurprisingly, mobile phones and tablet computers are at the centre of many investigations. It is important to identify and extract data properly, to ensure vital mobile forensics evidence is not overlooked.

A modern flagship mobile device can have up to 256 gigabytes of internal memory, plus additional storage capacity in the cloud and on removable memory cards; as a result, the amount of evidence that can be extracted is phenomenal. At the other end of the spectrum, there are a myriad of small feature phones which are preferred by some individuals; that may have limited usage, however, they can still hold vital information.

When it comes to mobile devices, the quantity of data and the pace of new developments are staggering, in addition, there are challenges, such as encryption, deleted data and damaged devices. Nevertheless, regardless of the complexity of the situation or the reason for requiring the information, evidence must be collected, analysed and presented within tight timescales and in a manner which stands up to scrutiny.

Corporate and Civil

Evidence from mobile phones and tablets can play a crucial part in investigations into bullying, harassment, collusion, fraud, IP theft, misuse of company property and other wrongdoings.

Law enforcement

In partnership with police forces and law enforcement agencies, we are able to provide the necessary skills and understanding to support the digital elements of complex and major crime investigations.

Defence

CCL understand constraints of the legal aid process, with tight timeframes and restricted budgets. Our experts will re-examine the prosecution’s evidence, placing it under scrutiny to the advantage of the defence.

Our experienced team of mobile phone forensics experts, are equipped with the latest industry standard tools and techniques, as well as many solutions developed by our own R&D department. Consequently, we can recover more data, from more devices, than those who rely on industry standard mobile device forensic tools alone. In many circumstances, we can recover evidence from phones, tablets, SIM cards and memory cards even if it has been deleted.

Our mobile phone lab works to the stringent requirements of ISO17025:2005 accreditation.
