Mobile devices, including cellular phones and tablet computers, are continuously evolving. They contain potential evidence that is important from both an investigative and intelligence gathering perspective. Security features on most mobile devices restrict what evidence can potentially be extracted. Examiners must keep up to date with developing technologies and what tools and techniques are available. Police investigators and analysts trained in digital forensics increase their knowledge and effectiveness in extracting, analysing and disclosing information obtained from mobile devices.
