Geocell is pleased to announce newly developed course on cell phone and mobile device forensics. This course has been developed from the ground up to fill a distinct void in law enforcement training when it comes to training regarding mobile device forensics. The introduction to cell phone and mobile device forensics course has been developed by experienced criminal investigators and those with extensive experience working with computer forensics overall and cellular and mobile device forensics in specific.

This course is targeted at the every day investigator, prosecutor, analyst, and even management and patrol personnel. In this modern world, essentially every investigation involves mobile digital devices. Most commonly, these devices include cell phones, but also include ever-increasing numbers of tablet computers (i.e., iPads). It is imperative that ALL law enforcement personnel know key skills when dealing with these devices.

The course has the following key objectives:

What is digital forensics & why does it matter to law enforcement, including why it cannot be overlooked!,

What data is available on physical cellular and mobile devices themselves, how is the data extracted, & most importantly, how can the data may be used to enhance investigations & prosecutions, including liability reduction!

Detailed coverage of key considerations that ALL law enforcement personnel should know regarding the physical recovery, securing [leave on or off?, radio frequency (RF) isolation?, fingerprints, DNA?, etc.], transportation, & storage of cell phones & other mobile devices such as tablets (i.e., iPads), laptops, & GPS devices.

Important legal considerations for the seizing & searching of devices,

What methods are available for properly securing & extracting data, including important manpower, financial, training, & practical considerations such as examination times, analysis times, data carvings, etc.,

Introduction to what records & data are available from the cell phone companies (including CDRs/geographic cell site/sector/ranging data, etc.), &, what surveillance options are possible with wireless devices, &,

Introduction to digital forensic reporting & analysis, courtroom presentation considerations, &, the future.

Geocell has secured an outstanding law enforcement veteran and computer and cell phone forensic expert. Michael Harrington will be the primary instructor for this newly developed course. As a former Michigan State Police Detective Sergeant, Mike brings years of experience not just in investigations and forensics, but also in training. Geocell is very pleased to be working with Mike on these courses.

Please check the website for future training opportunities:
