Digital forensics (sometimes known as computer forensics) is a branch of forensic science encompassing the recovery and analysis of data found in digital devices, often in relation to computer crime. The term digital forensics was originally used as a synonym for computer forensics but has expanded to cover the analysis of all devices capable of storing digital data including thumb drives, hard drives, cell phones, and memory cards. The goal is to support or refute a hypothesis before criminal courts (as part of the data recovery or electronic discovery process). Digital forensics may also be paramount in the private sector; such as during divorce cases or internal corporate investigations that may be tried in civil court.
Cell Phone Forensics, Cell Tower analysis and Call Detail Records analysis
Mobile device forensics is a branch of digital forensics relating to recovery of digital evidence or data from a mobile device under forensically sound conditions. The phrase mobile device usually refers to mobile phones; however, it can also relate to any digital device that has both internal memory and communication ability, including PDA devices, GPS devices and tablet computers.
The use of phones in crime was widely recognized for some years, but the forensic study of mobile devices is a relatively new field, dating from the early 2000s. A proliferation of phones (particularly smartphones) on the consumer market caused a demand for forensic examination of the devices, which could not be met by existing computer forensics techniques.
Cell Tower and Call Detail Records analysis is a powerful tool to help you reveal the truth about where your clients phone was. Nevada DIgital Forensics uses the most advanced software available to analyze the Call Detail Records and Cell Site records.
