Fundamentals & Principles, Mobile Phone ProgrammingAt the MTEB Conference 2009 Greg Smith TrewMTE stated that the MTEB would launch a series of new courses in 2010 to help improve skillsets, increase knowledge and experience, help galvanise the industry, generate a body that represented our industry and demonstrate ways forward as to marketplaces. Given the current economic climate and public sector cutbacks MTEB has brought forward the launch of the courses with Cell Site Analysis Fundamentals announced recently here and at Forensic Focus and today the launch of FUNDAMENTALS & PRINCIPLES, MOBILE PHONE PROGRAMMING. This new course is to assist those who want to extend their working boundaries, introduce new work to their company or move on from evidence in criminal cases and see the world of mobile phones in a different perspective.
The skilled mobile phone examiner demonstrates his/her understanding of mobile phones not merely from data that s/he has acquired, for that can be relatively simple, but by illustrating his/her understanding of a mobile phone’s capability. For instance, how does the programming language relate to evidence? What does the keypad tell us? How do we know photos get stored in the Image Folder? File sharing, is that possible? Can mobile phone programming skillsets be used in private and commercial business? What about IP infringement or industrial espionage - are mobile phones used? Remember that forensic techniques are not solely applied in criminal matters but in many other areas too! This course can help get you started in new working environments.
