ITPSS Sdn Bhd had successfully obtained the official accreditation of ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (AR 3125:2019) standard for the National Digital Forensics Laboratory (NDFL), Cyber Security Brunei recently.
The ISO accreditation was awarded by the American National Standards Institute National Accreditation Board (ANAB), an organization that provides accreditation services to government, public and private sector organizations worldwide.
ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 is one of the most important and highly respected international standards for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories. This accreditation marks a significant achievement, with NDFL being the first and only digital forensics laboratory in Brunei Darussalam and among only a select few in the region to achieve such a standard. It also places NDFL on a stronger footing to better serve its constituents that
mainly consist of law enforcement agencies.
The National Digital Forensics Laboratory facilitates digital forensics investigations by providing digital laboratory facilities to law enforcement and investigation agencies in Brunei Darussalam. Comprised of highly specialized local analysts, NDFL is a major contributor to the growth of cybersecurity expertise in the nation, in particular Digital Forensics and cyber crime investigation.
