The goal of cell phone data extraction is heavily dependent upon the unique situation for which the data stored on the phone is being requested. No two cases are ever the same, and for this reason, an in-depth initial consultation can be a critical step in assessing the correct techniques for the specific role required. This will also allow for taking things step by step while enabling clarification of your goals clearly and easily.
By eliminating the data you do not need, you can become more efficient in the time and effort used to procure the correct data, which will be a valuable end result. Specifically targeted data might include any or all of the following:
Cell phone surveillance is usually carried out with the importance of creating effective final documentation in mind. This process allows for data to be analyzed and stored in a consistent, legal fashion then turned into information that can be used in a variety of ways. This may include things like evidence in a court case, documenting employee fraud or any number of other reasons situations may present.
A few things to consider before starting include:
If you are stopped by a police officer, do you know whether or not they have the equipment or the legal right to extract data from your mobile phone? The equipment to do this is readily available, and in fact several state police organizations are already using it. Consumer and activist organizations such as the ACLU are already taking action to challenge the legality of these situations and it will be very interesting to see how it unfolds over the coming months. But whatever side of the issue you stand on, if you or your employees carry sensitive data on your mobile smart phones, it would be a good idea to make sure this data is properly protected.
