Modern mobile devices have alot of remote management features, including a full whipe of the data of the phone and SIM/USIM card.
We produce investigation rooms and boxes for forensic applications so that the devices can’t make contact with the outside word.
Since mobile phones change very quick in size and way how to operate (Google glass), it’s better to take it into the room with with the investigator him/her selves.
In that case you need a Faraday cage with a lock, so that always a door is closed when personnel enter the room.
An another approach is that the phones are fully shielded in separate boxes and can be stored under power.
This to get full date retrieval to save all data on the cell phone, SIM/ USIM and eventual memory cards.
Therefore is it important that base station can not create contact with the phones during transport and that the phone will not be switched off.
For transport we have special shielded transport boxes, which should be on board of every police vehicle.
In case it is not possible to take the phone from the victum we make also blankets to cover the victim until to prevent the cell phone connecting before it is saved in a shielded box and transported to the laboratory and ensure it is court -admissible.
Data which is imporant to save:
- Dialed, missed and received call including times and duration;
- Messages like sms, whats-app and other ways of communication with it’s times;
- Names of contact and the phone numbers;
- Data like email addresses, residential addressed;
- “Secret codes”, bank informations, details of pins , credit card numbers;
- Digital payment data;
- Photo’s and other graphics.
Legal firms and and law enforcement officials realize that it is important to get all these data and that these data have a greatly affect on the outcome of a trial.
