During this module, you explored the topics of mobile forensics. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines list four different states a mobile device can be in when you extract data.
- Identify the four states.
- Describe the state, and how it might impact the investigator gathering data. Also discuss alternatives and work-arounds to the device state, which the investigator may initially encounter.
