The information provided is extensive and covers all aspects of basic examinations of SIM cards, memory cards, feature phones, GPS navigation devices, and smartphones. There are three levels of this course: basic, intermediate and advanced. All levels include different hands-on exercises.

Basic Course

This entry-level program is the starting point for those tasked with identifying and seizing mobile devices for data acquisition. The course will address legal considerations, standard operating procedures, and best practices for seizing and searching devices. Key serial numbers included in every investigation and their importance will be explained. Extraction methods will be introduced and demonstrated, followed by practical exercises that include SIM card, physical, file system, and logical extractions. After successful extractions, participants will analyze the extracted data using forensic tools. Recognizing various locking mechanisms found on Android and iPhone devices will be taught, along with an overview and analysis of both operating systems. Participants in this course will gain a basic understanding of how to open the extractions in mobile forensics software, perform basic searches, and how to create bookmarks and reports.
