What is CREST?

CREST is a not-for-profit accreditation body that represents and supports the technical information security market. It provides internationally recognised accreditations for organisations and individuals providing a host of cyber security services.

It was set up in response to the clear need for more regulated professional services and is now recognised globally. It’s governed by an elected executive board of experienced security professionals who help promote, develop and support awareness and standards within the cyber security marketplace.

Internal audits ensure that all CREST membership and accreditation activities preserve impartiality, objectivity, independence and confidentiality to provide the highest of professional ethics.

Why CyberGuard is CREST accredited...

Being a member provides a demonstrable level of quality for our services and is used as a major differentiator in offering superior cyber security services rather than a traditional security business.

By being accredited it provides an independent, verifiable third-party assessment of our security methods giving us confidence that our procedures are of the highest standard. This then provides us with greater credibility within the cyber security industry.

With constantly new and evolving threats within the cyber security landscape, knowledge and guidance is indispensable. Being accredited with CREST also offers us access to industry leading guidance, standards and the opportunity to share and enhance our cyber security knowledge.

CREST membership isn’t easy. Companies applying must undergo stringent assessments, while CREST qualified individuals have to pass rigorous professional level examinations to demonstrate knowledge, skill and competence. This validates our cyber security professionals and demonstrates a level of the highest quality, which is why CyberGuard is CREST accredited.
