What is CREST certification?
CREST is an accreditation body and non-profit organisation that provides regulation, accountability and accreditation to the information security marketplace. CREST provides internationally recognised accreditations for organisations and individuals who provide penetration testing, cyber incident response and threat intelligence services.
Why does CREST certification matter?
Penetration tests form part of an industry recognised approach to identifying and quantifying risk. They actively attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in a company’s infrastructure, applications, people, and processes. As cyber attacks and techniques continue to evolve, it is more important than ever to ensure that an organisation’s network, devices and applications – and the personal data and information that resides within them – are protected.
Penetration testing involves simulating the techniques used by cyber criminals and hackers, and should only be carried out by trusted third parties that adhere to the highest professional standards and hold the appropriate independent accreditations – such as CREST.
