CREST, or the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers, is an independent accreditation and certification body for the information security industry. It ensures that penetration testers have a minimum standard of qualifications and experience. By using CREST-approved testers, organisations can be certain that their chosen tester is properly qualified to carry out the work.
CREST-approved testers are highly experienced and qualified professionals who have demonstrated their technical capabilities. They operate in accordance with the highest ethical standards of conduct, maintaining confidentiality and professional integrity. All CREST-approved testers must adhere to the strict Code of Conduct, which sets out a clear framework for acceptable behaviour. This ensures that organisations can trust their chosen tester to carry out the work without any risk to their systems or data.
In addition, CREST-approved testers must have appropriate insurance cover in place at all times. This protects organisations from any potential liabilities that may arise during the testing process.
CREST also provides guidance and support to its members throughout the entire process. This includes guidance on developing test plans, report writing, and other best practices. By using CREST-approved testers, organisations can be sure that the highest standards of professionalism are maintained throughout the entire testing process.
Organisations can find a list of CREST-approved testers on the CREST website. Here, they can search for a tester by their experience and qualifications. The list includes information about each tester’s location, contact details, and the services they offer. In addition, the list also provides ratings from previous clients that have used the tester’s services in the past.
