What is CREST?
CREST is a non-profit organization headquartered in the UK, established to serve the needs of the information technology and security market. CREST’s goal is to provide process standardization, and assurance that companies accredited under their name are trusted to perform critical testing with reliable results.
From CREST’s home page:
“CREST provides organizations wishing to buy penetration testing services, threat intelligence or incident response services with confidence that the work will be carried out by qualified individuals with up to date knowledge, skill and competence of the latest vulnerabilities and techniques used by real attackers.”
What Makes CREST Approved Testing So Valuable?
A CREST Approved Penetration Test is not just an assessment performed based on a tester’s experience and methodology but is instead a standardized pen testing program. This standard of testing helps ensure reliable results and consistent documentation, as well as assurance that best practices have been followed.
A CREST Approved Penetration Test:
- Offers a tangible level of assurance for the processes, procedures, and documentation of testing
- Ensures the competence of security personnel performing testing
- Is built to provide the most value from testing, including standards for guidance, enhancing knowledge, and security awareness.
Do I Need a CREST Approved Test?
CREST Approved Penetration Tests provide a level of attestation that can be considered a best practice standard in the security marketplace. Having an accredited reference for testing results can make a massive difference when it is time to provide clients, shareholders, and company partners with assurance of security.
The Stakes are High
Failing to provide proof your network can securely process client data has proven to result in the loss of customers. On the flip side, being able to prove you are able to handle customer data securely can be a strong marketing message used to keep and close new customers.
