2 December 2015:
Symantec (NASDAQ: SYMC), the global leader in cybersecurity, has passed the demanding assessment required to become a member of CREST, the not-for-profit accreditation body that represents the technical information security industry.  Operating one of the world’s largest cyber intelligence networks, Symantec helps organisations, governments and individuals secure their information wherever it lives.  Backed by over 500 security professionals around the world, Symantec’s Cyber Security Services provide 24x7x365 global threat monitoring and analysis; real-time adversary and threat intelligence; and incident response so organisations can quickly detect, assess, and respond to advanced threats.“Symantec is proud to be recognised by CREST for our Cyber Security Incident Response services,” said Bob Burls, Head of Symantec EMEA Incident Response Services.  “The CREST accreditation is a strong testament to the depth and knowledge of our Incident Response team.   CREST’s recognition further demonstrates the breadth and scale of our processes and procedures, validating the competence of our technical capabilities, and endorsing our team’s professional qualifications to provide expert guidance to help organisations appropriately respond to cyber security incidents in the EMEA region.”Through CREST membership, Symantec demonstrates that it provides the highest level of incident repose services, carried out only by qualified people and with all the appropriate policies, processes and procedures in place.  It also means they have signed up to a strict and enforceable code of conduct.  All of this provides valuable assurance to the buying community.
