CACI’s Digital Forensics Lab granted ISO/IEC 17043:2023 accreditation for Proficiency Testing services

CACI’s new Digital Forensics Laboratory has successfully passed its initial assessment and been granted accreditation to ISO/IEC 17043:2023 by UKAS for its Digital Forensic Proficiency Test schemes. This builds on the Laboratory recently receiving ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation back in February. This accreditation means that CACI are now the only accredited Digital Forensics Proficiency Testing provider in Europe.

Full scope details:

The following CACI Ltd Proficiency Testing Schemes have been accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) for ISO/IEC 17043:2023:

  • Computer-Based Devices – Acquisition
  • Computer-Based Devices – Processing & Analysis
  • Mobile-Based Devices – Acquisition, Processing & Analysis

All schemes are tailored to meet the criteria for accredited digital forensics (DF) laboratories operating in law enforcement. Participation rates during proficiency testing cycles have been consistently increasing.

CACI’s DF Laboratory’s Operations Director, Richard Cockerill, had this to say:

“CACI are delighted with the news that we have been granted ISO/IEC 17043:2023 accreditation for our digital forensic proficiency testing services. Over the past year we have successfully delivered realistic and challenging PT schemes to UK Law Enforcement related organisations. Feedback from participants has been really positive. Now that we are an accredited PT provider we look forward to expanding our support in this area for both existing and new law enforcement clients.”

*The certificate of accreditation awarded to CACI will be available from the UKAS website shortly.
