ISO 17025 For Digital Forensics – Yay Or Nay
by Robert Merriott
“Much of the digital forensic community desires to have their evidence seen in court as forensically sound and bulletproof, yet do not want to go through the rigors that other traditional forensic sciences have done to prevent evidence spoliation and other mishandling and misinterpretations.”
~ Josh Moulin, Deputy Chief Information Officer, US Federal Government, National
As many forensic experts will already know, ISO 17025 is now the mandatory standard in the United Kingdom (UK) for all Digital Forensic laboratories as of October 2017.
Any digital forensic laboratory in the UK which isn’t ISO 17025 certified will be required to declare itself as “non-compliant” on each issued report.
