  • 6 Persistent Challenges with Smartphone Forensics

    • DFI News
    • February 11, 2013

    Smartphones, the most popular mobile communications devices today, are also some of the most difficult to extract evidentiary data from. While many commercial forensic tools have made great strides in supporting data extraction, decoding and analysis from iOS, Android, and BlackBerry devices, some challenges remain. What are they, and how are vendors responding?

  • A Survey of Official and Unofficial Law Enforcement Twitter Accounts in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States

    • Canadian Association of Police on Social Media
    • August 20, 2010
    Authors: Christa Miller, Laura Madison, Chris Worden

    To use Twitter to its fullest potential for public communications, emergency management, and other functions, law enforcement agencies must first understand the medium -- not only how citizens use it, but also how their peers use it both officially and unofficially. This study, a survey of 1,089 police and police-related Twitter accounts, used 25 different criteria to show how agencies and officers are using Twitter, where they can improve, and implications for their future use.

    Keywords: law enforcement, Twitter, crisis informatics, social media policy, third-party Twitter tools, public information, community relations

    Authors: Christa Miller, Ronen Engler, Lee Papathanasiou

    If you’re contemplating entering the field of mobile forensics, know that much of the hard work associated with file systems and data structures is now automated. With that said, “I pressed a button and got the data” is still a statement you want to avoid making in court. Here are some additional challenges to keep in mind as you start to investigate mobile devices.

  • 5 forensic challenges of mobile malware

    • SC Magazine
    • July 1, 2013
    Authors: Christa Miller

    As smartphones have gained popularity in American culture, it stood to reason that eventually malware—and the potential spoils to be gained from its use—would become attractive to cyber criminals. Yet the unknowns about mobile malware are almost as many as the apps it often comes packaged in. Not least is the question of whether mobile malware is really an emerging threat, or just so much FUD. (Remember, Verizon's 2012 Data Breach Investigations Report noted that “confirmed [mobile] data compromises remained rare” that year.) What are the major challenges to digital forensic examiners?
