To comply with the highest audit standards, Secura can now offer CREST approved audits for pen testing and vulnerability assessments.
CREST is an independent, non-profit organization that sets professional standards for Pentesting in an unregulated environment. Their accreditations confirm the abilities of Pentesting companies; up-to-date knowledge and skills, the right processes in place, and compliance with regulatory standards. Also, you can be sure that the accredited company is responsible for dealing with you and your environment.
For Secura, consistency and accuracy in our testing process have always been important. With this new CREST accreditation, we can now also deliver our pen testing and vulnerability assessments according to the highest industry standard. Working and delivering according to the CREST processes confirms the consistency of our approach. This gives our customers the confidence that we will deliver as promised. Also, it makes it easier to compare tests and see progress over time.
Secura will help financial organizations leverage CREST to consistently manage their IT risk and related test programs, in compliance with the up and coming Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA)
“Recognising the vital role of penetration testing for its ever increasing client base, Secura can now give customers the added assurance that its services meet the highest standards, by successfully going through the CREST accreditation process,” said Rowland Johnson, President of CREST. “Secura’s accreditation reflects its commitment to invest in the people, processes, methodologies and systems to deliver internationally recognized and trusted services.”
Anne de Nies, Manager Finance Market Group, comments – “I’m proud to say that we are certified against the high international standard of CREST. We believe we are doing the right thing, with the right skilled people and according to good practices. To have an external party confirm that is valuable.”
The benefits of this new certification include:
• Consistency in test approach; see progress over time.
• Help customers build a solid test program to comply with DORA.
• Confidence in the knowledge and skills of Secura testers
