Mobile Device Discovery for the Win

Did you ever imagine there would be a time when your phone would be almost as powerful as a computer? When you would carry your smartphone or tablet with everywhere, like a lifeline to all the information you need?

Cell phones and tablets store a wealth of data such as email, text messages, voicemail, social media activity, and internet browsing history. Because they have quickly become such an essential part of our lives, they are quickly becoming an integral part of the eDiscovery process. Increasingly, evidence found on mobile digital devices wins cases.

Just as computer information is never truly deleted, the same applies to mobile device information. Because mobile device technology, like all technologies, is constantly evolving, the cell phone forensics team at TCDI uses industry-leading technology to preserve and analyze data stored on mobile devices, including:

  • Text Messages
  • Call History
  • Applications
  • Calendars
  • Voicemail
  • Email
  • Pictures and Videos
  • Geolocation Information
  • Contacts
  • Internet Browsing History

A variety of devices and operating systems (e.g., iOS and Android) are supported by cell phone forensic services, such as:

  • iPhone®
  • iPad®
  • iPod Touch®
  • Samsung Galaxy®
  • HTC®
  • Blackberry®

How much information we can retrieve, including deleted data, depends a lot on the type of phone we are working on and the operating system version it uses. When you are worried that important information has been deleted from any device, stop using it immediately and have it analyzed as soon as you can. If you continue to use it, the information may be overwritten and lost forever.

If you need supporting evidence for litigation, retrieval of information accidentally deleted or lost, or employee data theft investigation, we can help you recover that information.

Mobile devices are continuously advancing and becoming more sophisticated, giving them the ability to store increasing amounts of relevant data. They continue to get smaller, yet they do more and save more information. That’s why specialized hardware, software, and knowledge, is necessary to preserve and analyze this critical evidence.

At the conclusion of our analysis, we’ll give you an easy to navigate report containing all the extracted information from the device. Or, if you are only interested in specific information or data, the report can be limited by keyword, date filter, or data type (such as text messages). Finally, the forensic analyst assigned to your case can testify regarding the authenticity of the evidence, if necessary.

36 years and counting. We must be doing something right.

It’s a lot easier to say than to do: Assemble the right mix of tech geeks, data nerds, flexible lawyers, Lean Six Sigma ninjas, and creative solution architects. Choose only people who are obsessed with client service and committed to being the best team they can be. Build systems that ensure high quality by design. Then stand back and let that team deliver an unmatched client experience at cost-effective, predictable prices.

Sure, it takes a bit of doing, but it’s worth it. And once you get used to working this way, nothing else will really do.
