Don't know your background and only got a few secs (got to watch a film with my missus)

Think about how you would approach a given examination, what sort of problems you might encounter and how you would get around them.

Try and have an understanding of the different stengths and weaknesses of the tools.

Be able to discuss the implications of a manual extraction/jailbreaking or if some code is uploaded to a phone in order get a dump

Be able to talk about the importance of evidence handling.

any many more Smile

These may sound obvious but it is frightening how many people freeze at interview on subjects that they know well but have not considered from an interviewers perspective.
