NIST Mobile Forensics Workshop and Webcast

18 Jun 2014 - 18 Jun 2014 - Gaithersburg, MD, USA

Bookmark and Share

Mobile devices are ubiquitous in today’s society and often contain valuable information that can help investigators reconstruct events and solve crimes. There have been many research advancements in both mobile devices and the tools used to analyze these devices. With these advancements, investigators and analysts that rely on the outputs of the devices and tools require confidence that the evidence they find is reliable and reproducible. Stakeholders in the mobile forensic science community work together to keep pace with the rapid change experienced in this industry. These stakeholders perform research to develop new analysis tools, use collaborative venues to develop procedural standards, and validate tools through testing programs to support investigators through the investigation and judicial process. 

To educate attendees on the latest developments in the forensic analysis of mobile devices and how technologies are used in casework. The information provided will increase the situational awareness of investigators and criminal justice stakeholders across the United States about the latest trends, analysis protocols, and issues encountered when applying analysis tools to mobile devices. 


  • Discuss a broad range of technical mobile forensic topics, from basic to advanced concepts
  • Discuss mobile forensic research needs from academic and practitioner perspectives
  • Discuss mobile device forensics - is it actually ‘forensics’
  • Discuss the real-world application of mobile forensic analytical tools
  • Allow participants to ask questions directly of mobile forensics experts
