Mobile Device Forensics

Mobile device forensics is the systematic preservation and analysis of cell phones and other portable devices (iPads, Android tablets) using court and industry accepted software and techniques.  In electronic discovery matters, cell phones are often included in litigation hold matters, thus need to be properly preserved.

GCIS uses industry standard mobile device forensic programs that enable us to extract data for thousands of portable devices. Depending on the device, GCIS can forensically extract the following:

  • Call logs
  • SMS (text messages) – Even deleted messages depending on the circumstances
  • Images
  • Internet browsing history
  • Location detail
  • Application Data (Facebook, Snapchat, many others)
  • Installed programs
  • Phonebook
  • Calendar
  • Stored Media (music, video, etc.)
