Expert Insight

CREST Certified

At Stripe OLT, our experts are committed to developing and delivering exceptional business technology solutions. Our team have gained a wide range of industry-leading accreditations over the last 10 years, and continue to build partnerships with global technology providers.

As such, we’re incredibly proud to announce our latest achievement – We are now CREST certified.

What is CREST?

CREST is the not-for-profit accreditation and certification body representing the technical information security industry. CREST provides internationally recognised accreditation for organisations and individuals who provide vulnerability assessment, penetration testing, cyber incident response, threat intelligence services, and Security Operations Centre (SOC) services. Established in 2006 following the clear need for more regulated professional services, CREST is now recognised globally as the cyber assurance body for the technical security industry.

In order to gain this globally-recognised accreditation, our team of security consultants at Stripe OLT undertook stringent assessments and professional level examinations testing and demonstrating their knowledge, skill and competence.

What does it mean to be CREST certified?

Through successfully achieving this accreditation specifically for our Penetration Testing services, our clients can be confident that:

  • Our Penetration Testing will be delivered by CREST-qualified consultants with up-to-date knowledge, skill and competence in dealing with the latest vulnerabilities and techniques used by real attackers.
  • Our Penetration Testing will be delivered with best practise policies and procedures enforced.
  • Our security consultants have met a high-level of industry standards, underpinned by meaningful and enforceable codes of conduct.

Our Head of Cyber Security, and one of the driving forces behind our CREST achievement, Ryan Pullen, says:

“A data breach can occur to anyone at any time, it doesn’t matter if you’re an SME or a global corporation, just look at the recent Facebook breach – no one is exempt. We frequently come across complex networks and infrastructures that have been built without security in mind, but it’s now 2021 and organisations need to employ a security-first mindset – A penetration test is a great first step in understanding technical controls and how effective they are.

We’re extremely proud of this latest achievement and it only solidifies the skills and knowledge of our SecOps team. For us, it was essential to gain this accreditation to prove our commitment to this industry.”

Ian Glover, President of CREST, remarked:

“By achieving CREST accreditation, Stripe OLT positions itself as a trusted provider of penetration testing services and demonstrates that its business processes, data security and testing methodologies meet the highest standards.

With the continuing rise of sophisticated cyber-attacks from criminal and state-sponsored hacking groups, Stripe OLT is well-placed to take advantage of the growing demand for professional penetration testing services.”

At Stripe OLT we’re incredibly excited to continue developing our portfolio of industry-leading services, whilst continuing to build strong partnerships with global technology providers. If you want more information about our leading Pen Testing and Cyber Security services, click here.
