What is CREST Accreditation?

For those unfamiliar, Council for Registered Ethical Security Testers – CREST is a non-profit accreditation body founded in 2006 in response to the need for regulated and standardised cybersecurity services. Over the past decades, it has emerged as the gold standard and industry-leading accreditation. Today, it provides internationally recognised accreditation to organisations as well as individuals in penetration testing, cyber security incident response and threat intelligence. CREST-accredited organisations undergo stringent assessments, and the professionals are required to pass the high-level examination that shows knowledge, competence and skill to qualify. Initially, the membership was UK-based but now covers the Americas, Asia, Australasia, and EMEA. CREST continues to work with governments, regulators, academia, training centres, professional bodies and other stakeholders worldwide to establish global cybersecurity standards.

CREST OVS Programme

CREST OVS sets new standards for application security.  Both CREST and OWASP are not-for-profit organisations with a shared vision to improve global app security security and standards. Underpinned by OWASP’s Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) and Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS), CREST is leveraging the open-source community to build and maintain global standards to deliver a global web and mobile application security framework. This will provide assurance to the buying community that developers using CREST OVS accredited providers, always know that they are engaged with ethical and capable organisations with skilled and competent security testers by leveraging the OWASP ASVS and MASVS standards.
