Mobile Chat and Social App Forensics
Smartphone apps that allow users to express themselves by messaging, posting, tweeting, liking, commenting, and sharing images and videos, have radically altered communication patterns. This new world of hyper-connected mobile chat and social apps is evolving at warp speed, and it seems like a new app explodes in popularity every month, with others constantly changing and adding new features. These apps are drastically altering the field of mobile forensics, introducing rich new sources of evidence, but also creating new demands of digital forensics examiners who are expected to stay abreast of the latest app developments in order to recover and interpret data. The Magnet Forensics team tracks the latest mobile app trends in order to develop the timely artifact updates that IEF mobile module users require. In this recorded webinar, we discuss the newest trends in chat and social apps and provide a deep dive into the analysis of data from these apps using IEF.
