Forensic investigations often rely on data extracted from smartphones and tablets. Smartphones are the most personal computing device associated to any user, and can therefore provide the most relevant data per gigabyte examined. Commercial tools often miss digital evidence on smartphones and associated applications, and improper handling can render the data useless. We have created a poster as a cheat-sheet to help you remember how to handle smartphones, where to obtain actionable intelligence, and how to recover and analyze data on the latest smartphones and tablets.

This presentation provides an overview of useful data that can be extracted from mobile devices and I will walk through the new Smartphone Forensics Poster.
