CREST shortlisted in SC Magazine Awards

CREST has been named as one of the finalists in this year’s prestigious SC Magazine Awards, in the category for Best Professional Training or Certification Programme. The place on the shortlist reflects CREST’s wide range of work in this area including the CBEST and STAR schemes in partnership with the Bank of England and the development of the technical assessment and certification framework for the UK Government’s Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus initiative. It also recognises the increasing importance of CREST accreditations across government and industry to ensure the highest levels of knowledge, skills and competence.
“We are delighted to have reached the SC Awards finals at the end of what has been an exciting 12 months for CREST,” said Ian Glover, CREST President.  “Despite setting the bar very high, 2014 saw CREST’s membership grow by 40%, with almost 45% increase in exams taken. As well as increasing the levels of professionalism in the industry, it also means that the UK’s talent pool is growing and includes some of the brightest and most capable security experts in the industry.”

We also congratulate CREST members who have made the finals: Context Information Security, KPMG, NCC Group and Nettitude.

The Awards, judged by a panel of experts from the information security profession, are designed to honour professionals working to secure enterprises of all sizes and the vendors that deliver innovative security technologies.

The presentations to the winners of the SC Magazine Awards 2015, Europe will be made on Tuesday 2 June at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane.
