Mobile forensics continually changes and these changes are addressed in numerous lessons, including Lesson 7, when some Supreme Court landmark decisions have changed the rules for law enforcement. Lesson 9 gives an introduction to Mobile Forensics and covers the changes in Android devices and methods of examination. Lesson 12 explains how iPhone examinations have changed dramatically and shows how full file system extractions are now available with a recently discovered exploit. Lesson 10 is a new lesson that provides investigators with forensic techniques to perform both a static and a dynamic examination of mobile apps. Furthermore, this lesson explains how real-time intelligence can be gathered from many popular apps.

Every lesson has been updated extensively to incorporate many recent changes in technology and newly discovered techniques to obtain digital evidence. This course assumes no prior knowledge of the subject matter and it is for both high school and university students and professional forensics investigators. The course places a significant emphasis on process and adherence to the law, which is equally important to the evidence that can ultimately be retrieved.

This course will certainly benefit those in that profession or perhaps those considering a career change. The growth of social media and open-source data and tools creates a wealth of information for investigators and these are discussed in the course. 

Finally, this course often refers to professional computer forensics tools that can be expensive. The course makes a point of mentioning many free or low-cost forensics tools that can be just as effective as some of the expensive tools.
