CGI Federal’s Digital Forensics Lab has been awarded the ISO/IEC 17025 forensic accreditation by the American National Standards Institute’s National Accreditation Board, meaning the lab operates competently and generates valid results.
This milestone enables CGI Federal to expand its customer-facing offerings to provide end-to-end forensic investigations on behalf of its federal customers.
“As federal agencies continue to combat fraud, IP theft and other digitally based crimes, CGI’s newly accredited digital forensic lab will provide thorough, precise investigations that enable our federal customers to identify and track crimes at the point of origin,” said John B. Owens II, senior vice president and consulting and enterprise solutions group lead at CGI Federal.
Located in CGI Federal’s Cyber Threat Analysis Center in Huntsville, Alabama, the lab is one of a handful of private digital forensic laboratories that hold this accreditation.
“This accreditation of CGI Federal’s world-class digital forensic investigation lab recognizes our ability to provide state-of-the-art imaging, forensic equipment and decades of forensic case management and court testimony experience to our federal customers,” Owens said.
The lab delivers on- and off-site digital forensics services that include data/evidence collection, recovery, processing, analysis, reporting, litigation support and managed services, all done according to industry standards and CGI Federal best practices.
