Published: 25th March 2020 | In: News

EDINBURGH, UK, March 25, 2020 – Quorum Cyber Security Ltd. have been successfully assessed against CREST criteria for the supply of Cyber Security Incident Response services. Only a small group of cyber security providers have achieved this accreditation globally, highlighting Quorum Cyber’s commitment to continuous improvement of standards and quality of service.

CREST is an international not-for-profit accreditation and certification body that represents and supports the technical information security market. The CREST Cyber Security Incident Response (CSIR) accreditation scheme is fully endorsed by GCHQ and CPNI, focused on “appropriate standards for incident response aligned to demand from all sectors of industry, the wider public sector, and academia”.

In gaining CREST CSIR accreditation, Quorum Cyber demonstrated having effective policies, processes and procedures in place to help organisations plan for, manage, and recover from significant cyber security related incidents. As well as having access to team members who are professionally qualified in intrusion analysis and reverse engineering within their team.

“Cyber Incident Response is the term used to describe actions undertaken when a computer network or system is compromised, or believed to be compromised. Cyber Security Incident Response (CSIR) organisations can evaluate the situation and undertake the most appropriate actions to allow recovery from, and prevent reoccurrence of, the incident.” – CREST (International)

A member of CREST since 2016, Quorum Cyber has also gained accreditations in penetration testing, and vulnerability assessment, with the achievement of further accreditations in full progress.

I’m incredibly proud that the team has achieved CREST CSIR. This accreditation means a lot to us, as it further demonstrates the quality of the team and validates the approach we take to deliver best-in-class Incident Detection and Response Services.”
— Federico Charosky, Managing Director of Quorum Cyber.

CREST is delighted that Quorum Cyber has achieved CSIR accreditation. To gain CREST accreditation, companies go through a very demanding assessment process that examines 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. As a CREST member, Quorum Cyber is demonstrating to its customers and to the Industry as whole, its commitment to consistently delivering the highest professional security services standards.
— Ian Glover, CREST President.
