Flashback Data Remains Only Non-Governmental Digital Forensics Lab with ASCLD/LAB International Accreditation
January 23, 2013 – Austin, TX – Flashback Data, a fast-growing data recovery and computer forensics company, announced today it has received its reaccreditation from The American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB). The ASCLD/LAB is the oldest crime/forensic laboratory accrediting body in the world, and currently accredits most of the federal, state and local crime laboratories in the United States plus forensic laboratories throughout the world.
“Continuing our ASCLD/LAB International and ISO 17024:2005 certification solidifies our company’s place as the premier private-sector computer forensics firm,” said Russell Chozick , Vice President of Flashback Data. “We are still the only non-governmental lab with this same accreditation as the FBI and other similar agencies and are continually refining our stringent internal standards so we can offer our clients the very best forensics and data recovery services.”
Flashback Data operates a high-security lab with background checks, secure monitoring and biometric identification security procedures. The forensics team at the company consists of several former law enforcement and military professional and well-trained attorneys. The lab is especially suited to managing the needs of smaller law enforcement agencies, as it can produce faster results than typical government-run locations.
The American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors/Laboratory Accreditation Board (ASCLD/LAB) is a not for profit corporation, incorporated in the state of Missouri. ASCLD/LAB is proud to be recognized as an ISO/IEC 17011 compliant accrediting body in the field of forensic science by the Inter American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC) since September 2008 and by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) since April 2009. ASCLD/LAB is a signatory to both the IAAC Multi-lateral Recognition Arrangement and the ILAC Mutual Recognition Arrangement.
