Governance

CREST International represents the needs of the global cyber security market and is registered in the UK as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.  As a consequence, its strategy is aligned to that of nurturing global capability, capacity and consistency and is not tied to any country specific agenda.

CREST International provides global support to regionally based CREST Chapters.  CREST International currently operates four regions split across EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), The Americas, Asia and Australasia.

CREST International supports local countries to build their own CREST chapters to service the needs of the local market.  This is further supported by CREST International with research, certifications and accreditation programs being delivered consistently across the globe.

The individual Chapters each have elected Councils to manage the country-specific interests of member companies.  The Councils encourage buyers to utilise CREST accredited member companies for added reassurance of quality of service and to encourage the upskilling of technical cyber security professionals in the region.  Information on each of them can be found as follows:

There are two legal directors for CREST International – Rowland Johnson and Ian Glover –  who devolve responsibility to the CREST internal Management team for the day to day management of the organization.  Their details are available here.   In addition, there are a number of key executives that are engaged by CREST International to deliver financial control, marketing and public relations services.  Delivery of CREST’s practical certifications is via individuals appointed from member companies that possess the necessary technical skills.
