CREST accreditation

Digital Assurance, a security assessment and information assurance consultancy, has been awarded CREST accreditation for the penetration testing services. Digital Assurance passed CREST’s assessment and certification process to demonstrate standards in security testing.

CREST is a not for profit organisation that provides industry and government recognised standards and qualifications for companies and individuals providing technical information security services. CREST also provides its members with support and a framework for testing that includes standards, methodologies and processes.

Mark Osborne, executive director, Digital Assurance, said: “For us, and our clientele, CREST accreditation is one of the hallmarks that embodies security best practice in ethical hacking and penetration testing. Achieving CREST certification as a security consultancy testifies to our established technical expertise and validates the quality of our testing across the business. CREST is rapidly emerging as a key standard by which information security testing companies want to be measured and we’re delighted to be part of the scheme and make contributions to help shape the CREST standards as they develop in the future.”

“Becoming a CREST member is not an easy process, nor should it be, because it is designed to provide complete assurance of processes and procedures and validate the competence of information security testers,” said Ian Glover President of CREST. “Congratulations to Digital Assurance for passing all of the criteria and we are delighted to have them on board as members.”
