CREST becomes 'Founding Member' of UK Cyber Security Council


CREST has announced that it has been awarded ‘Founding Member’ status of the UK Cyber Security Council. This is a reflection of CREST’s work to set up the Council alongside the other members of the Cyber Security Alliance – the group of organisations that were originally commissioned by DCMS.

“Being awarded ‘Founding Member’ status is permanent acknowledgement of the significant contribution that CREST and the other 15 organisations involved in the Cyber Security Alliance have made to help get the Council off the ground,” Ian Glover, President of CREST commented. “CREST looks forward to working closely with the Council in the future to further develop and grow the cyber security profession”.
