The importance of holding a mobile forensic conference

The importance

The mobile forensic conference officially took place from 29 to 30 October 2018 ago, the event which involved many participants from all over the world has also run successfully and has become a routine agenda that is always held by the international mobile forensic committee. This conference is not without clear objectives.

For several purposes The importance of holding mobile forensic conferences has been felt rightly for the scientific world and its development in the future, this is because the mobile forensic conference itself is a gathering place for academic scientists, researchers and experts from around the world to exchange and share their experiences and research results regarding all aspects of mobile forensics.

Not only that, this mobile forensic conference can also be a new bridge for everyone to be able to directly contribute to being ordinary participants and resource persons through various selection, of course there will be more people who will join the mobile forensic committee international later, this can be proven through a number of new names that made it into the list of fillers.

Some people who made it through the selection and were finally able to give presentations at this event, such as Alexander Yushcenko for a paper on modern synergistic multi-science war studies and information security component, Turan Erdogan for his paper that discussed evidence-based practices for oral care in children, Jorge Maestre – Ana Lucila – Luis Javier, which discusses malware detection on mobile devices by analyzing system call sequences.

And there are many others. there were at least 15 papers that made it through the three-stage selection process and finally it could be presented at the mobile forensic conference in Barcelona last March. So in broad outline, this mobile forensic conference is very important to continue to be held every year because in addition to focusing on the world of mobile forensics, this event is also one of the drivers for the continued advancement of the world of science, engineering and technology academies that should continue to grow to meet the needs and the advancement of science especially in terms of this mobile forensic.

Why Mobile Forensic Is Important

Why Mobile Forensic Is Important

If a number of years ago computers were believed to be able to store many important things and data and were the most needed modern tools, apparently this was not the same. At present the function and sophistication of computers or commonly called Personal Computer (PC) has experienced a shift in terms of priority.

Now many types of smartphones have emerged that are far more minimal. Much more comfortable and safe to carry everywhere. For reasons of practicality, a technology called Mobile Forensic was created.

A Forensic Mobile is considered very practical and very profitable because it is only by using a small and efficient and lightweight tool that it can store a lot of important data and compete with computer devices. Especially if the smart phone is well connected to the internet network, then it can be said that important data storage is almost unlimited.

Why Mobile Forensic Is Important

In recent years smart phone technology has exploded and is a favorite for many people. A smart phone can have many highly sophisticated features and not only receive or send voice and text. But with a smart cellphone, other data can now be obtained in the form of call logs, images, the most recent messages, and can even be used as location tracking because there is a feature called data location. So using a tracking system onĀ  smart phones can be known where someone is currently.

In addition, people also tend to store a lot of personal data and important data on their cellphones, so it will make it easier to check and usually a smart phone will be the first item that the forensic team will ask for when something happens.

But this technology also has its own challenges in the world of forensics. Now many are accompanied by features that slightly complicate forensic work. It’s just that lately the development of Mobile Forensics, especially in the software systems section, has been very great at helping investigators in carrying out their duties. For example, to extract and describe the different devices in operation, then making various kinds of applications that support Mobile Forensic performance are always in the most recent or updated state.

Even though this variety of greatness is carried out by Mobile Forensic, investigators cannot hang all work on this system from Mobile Forensic. They must still consider other things as much as data that has been obtained manually, computers, or even on network traffic systems. Make the results obtained wider and more accurate than if only using Mobile Forensic.
