IACIS Receives Accreditation

The International Association of Computer Investigative Specialists (IACIS) announces the receipt of accreditation by The Forensic Specialties Accreditation Board of the IACIS Certified Forensic Computer Examiner (CFCE) program. This is believed to be the first such accreditation in the specific field of computer forensics by any forensic science accreditation body. The IACIS CFCE program was established in 1998 and is an internationally recognized standard in computer forensic certifications. IACIS trains and certifies individuals around the world on fundamental principles and standards, without reliance on specific branded forensic software or proprietary methodologies, with an emphasis on validation, peer review, and other common forensic science practices. IACIS members are located in 65 countries around the world.”One of our goals as an organization is to advance our certification program to the highest level by demonstrating that we subscribe to and abide by sound principles and standards within the forensic science community and judicial systems,” says Dan Purcell, Chairman of the IACIS Board of Directors. “We are exceptionally proud of our international body of members and countless volunteers who support the CFCE Certification Program. Achieving accreditation as a certifying body is a major milestone in our history as an organization, and we hope to attract more practitioners and organizations to achieve the coveted IACIS CFCE Certification or take advantage of our proficiency testing program.”

For qualifying individuals, IACIS offers a comprehensive peer reviewed testing program prior to the final certification examination. To maintain certification, a comprehensive recertification examination is required every three years. IACIS has also established biannual proficiency testing for government and private forensic labs that have that requirement.
