Accredited Companies providing CBEST services

Working alongside the UK central Bank, the Bank of England (BoE), CREST has developed a framework to deliver controlled, bespoke, intelligence-led cyber security tests that replicate behaviours of those threat actors, assessed by Government and commercial intelligence providers as posing a genuine threat to systemically important financial institutions.  CBEST is the first of initiative of its type to be led by any of the world’s central banks.

CREST helped to develop the new accreditation standards for CBEST penetration testing, based on the already stringent standards for assessing the capabilities, policies and procedures that CREST member companies have to achieve. CBEST accredited professionals also need to demonstrate extremely high levels of technical knowledge, skill and competency.
