Smartphones and the data they connect to from Apps to IoT devices

How can you make sure that you get the most out of a device when it comes to the lab? This session will go through all of the common issues that act as barriers for smartphone forensics and their processing as primary pieces of evidence. Review of data from the device, how they connect to other devices, as well as how they interact with the cloud. Review of the most popular Apps in these areas will be part of the presentation.
