Mobile devices are often a key factor in criminal cases, intrusions, IP theft, security threats, accident reconstruction, and more. Understanding how to leverage the data from the device in a correct manner can make or break your case and your future as an expert. FOR585: Smartphone Forensic Analysis In-Depth teaches you those skills.
We have produced excerpt animations of the course to talk about possible problems you might encounter during mobile device investigations and also some tricks on how to uncover evidence that you might not know.

Mobile identifiers play a key role in investigations and enable us to identify models of phones, potential areas of usage, understand the potential for smartphone components (SIM, SD, etc.) and more. These identifiers help us understand the best way to extract data from the devices ensuring that we get the most data for analysis.
FOR585 Course Animation: How WAL Gets Populated Initial State
Understanding how a WAL and DB interact when applications are being used is a must in DFIR. When separated, the data may not merge and provide a complete answer. When together, the data is complete. This video explains how data exists in the WAL and DB and issues you may have if your tools don’t understand the concepts.
