‘CREST is pleased to welcome Foregenix Ltd. as an accredited member company’, said Ian Glover, President of CREST, ‘Foregenix Ltd. has been through a demanding assessment process that examined test methodologies, legal and regulatory requirements, data protection standards, logging and auditing, internal and external communications with stakeholders, as well as how test data security is maintained.  Awarding Foregenix Ltd. membership for its penetration testing services means that we are formally recognising that the company consistently delivers the highest professional security services standards to its customers’.
