Control-F at ICDDF 2012

Control-F Managing Director Kevin Mansell presented at the International Communications Data & Digital Forensics Seminar (ICDDF) 2012 at London Heathrow on Monday March 26th. Kevin talked about about the challenges posed for phone examiners by the 7-bit encoding of SMS messages, particularly when trying to identify and recover SMS from hex dumps of mobile handsets. During his well attended session, Kevin also provided practical advice to those in the audience for finding and recovering SMS effectively.

Our Phone Forensics Deconstructed course teaches delegates about the structure of SMS messages at a bits and bytes level, giving them the knowledge and skills they need to be able to search for, recover and interpret live and deleted SMS from hex dumps of a multitude of handset models.
