With the popularity of smartphones and tablets continuing to rise, mobile devices are becoming more of a target to cybercriminals. Many individuals are using smaller devices as they would a desktop or laptop computer. They are storing more personal data and connecting apps to GPS, financial, storage, health, and more without taking the time to read and understand what information theyre allowing them to track, store, and share. Taking time to understand the latest malware, smartphone operating systems, third-party applications, acquisition shortfalls, extraction techniques (jailbreaks and roots) and encryption is key in keeping mobile security safe in the digital era. Getting a basic understanding of mobile device forensics will arm users with the knowledge needed to protect information on their equipment that could otherwise be used to harm them.
