A DIGITAL forensics specialist that works with law
enforcement, defence, government and big business has new owners.

CCL Group, the UK’s leading provider of digital forensics,
data analytics and cyber security services, has acquired Milton Keynes-based

enforcement and the military with its specialist triage solution SPEKTOR, used
in major operations to gather data and provide actionable intelligence for fast
moving investigations.

CCL Group chief executive Andrew Archibald said: “The addition of
Evidence Talks strengthens our overall presence in the digital forensics market

Evidence Talks’ unique forensic technology and hardware further strengthens the depth and range of services for which major organisations have come to rely on CCL Group, Mr Archibald added.

1993, Evidence Talks has built a team of security-cleared forensic analysts,
trainers, digital artists and software developers to create innovative forensic
technologies, training and tools. Its work is recognised as important in the
fight against cybercrime.
