Mobile Forensics: A Bibliometric Analysis


In the past few years mobile devices have advanced in a variety of ways such as internal power source capacity, internal memory storage, and CPU capabilities thereby increasing computing capacity while still maintaining a portable size for the owners of mobile devices, this essentially turning it into a portable data storage device where people store their personal information. These changes in the nature and sage of the mobile devices have led to their increased importance in areas such as legal implications in police or company investigations. In this paper we will conduct a bibliometric analysis of the subject of mobile forensics which will enable us to examine the degree to which this new development can become potential evidence, the advances investigators have made over time on the subject, the possible future technologies that could influence more changes in the field of mobile forensics and its impact, covering also the difference between mobile forensics and computer forensics.
