Overview

As smartphones become more secure, what has changed for us forensically? What are the different types of security measures being deployed and how do these affect our processes? Which acquisition methods are best for secured devices? If you get an image of the device, can your current forensic tools provide you access for analysis? This webcast will go into detail on each of these topics and dive into ways around some of these security features on smartphones. White papers, tools (including open source) and methods written and developed by those in our community will be discussed. Don't let a smartphone "out smart" you - take the reigns on your investigation.
