Accreditations you can believe in

Working to the accepted gold standards across digital forensics and cyber security.

Quality at our core

Quality, accuracy and integrity are in the CCL DNA. We were one of the first testing laboratories to be ISO 17025 accredited and have adhered to the industry’s gold standard consistently for well over a decade. We were also in the vanguard of Digital Forensic Service Providers (FSPs) to be deemed fully compliant with the new FSR Act 2021 Codes of Practice.

Our cyber services are built on similar levels of excellence: our consultants are CHECK and CREST-certified and operate to recognised security standards including ISO 27001, Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus.

CCL: amazing technology and very talented people

Digital forensics accreditations

ISO 17025 logo


ISO 17025 - Laboratory Accreditation

ISO 17025 is a globally recognised accreditation for testing and calibration laboratories. Holding this standard demonstrates a company's competence in producing precise and accurate results, ensuring the reliability of their testing processes.

CCL Forensics Ltd has held ISO 17025 accreditation for the past thirteen years, boasting the broadest certified service scope of any UK digital forensics service provider. We can also help organisations get ISO 17025 ready with tailored consultancy and training programs.

ISO 27001

ISO 27001 - Information Security Management Systems

ISO 27001 focuses on information security management systems. Companies with this accreditation showcase a commitment to safeguarding sensitive information, managing risks effectively, and maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.

For CCL, this standard underscores how invested we are in the care and secure management of evidential data and/or confidential information.

Cyber security accreditations

CHECK logo


CHECK is the term for NCSC-approved penetration test companies and the methodology used to conduct penetration tests. Companies providing CHECK services do so using staff who hold NCSC approved qualifications and have suitable experience.

CCL has a large CHECK-accredited team that can conduct authorised penetration tests of public sector and CNI systems and networks.

CREST logo


CREST is a not-for-profit organisation that offers certifications for various cybersecurity services, including but not limited to penetration testing. CREST certifications are recognised globally and are not limited to government-related work.

Our CREST-certified cyber professionals work extensively in the private sector, bringing proven methodologies to services including pen testing, Red Teaming and Microsoft 365 security reviews.

Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus logos

Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus

Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus are Government-backed certifications that demonstrate a commitment to basic cybersecurity practices, protecting against common online threats and bolstering overall digital resilience. As well as holding both certifications, CCL can also train, assess and certify other organisations looking to attain them.

Learn more about our Accreditation Consultancy services, including training and assessment for key cyber security standards.

Quality management accreditation

ISO 9001 is the globally recognised standard for quality management. Its requirements define how to establish, implement, maintain, and continually improve a quality management system (QMS). With the QMS in place, organisations can look to enhance their performance, meet customer expectations and demonstrate their commitment to quality.

CCL has been the proud holder of ISO 9001 since 2004, and it has been instrumental in the development of our processes and our people to deliver consistently to the highest possible standards.
