Discover How CREST Is Helping Buyers Know They Are Getting a Quality Service on the Latest Episode of The Virtual CISO Podcast from Pivot Point Security

HAMILTON, N.J., June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- As many CISOs and other information security professionals know, buying cybersecurity services like penetration testing can seem like a gamble with no objective standard to compare to. Service providers get the flip side of the issue: how do they demonstrate value? The result can be a wide swing in service cost and quality that puts buyers at risk and makes differentiation harder for sellers.

Thankfully, there's CREST. A UK-based nonprofit, CREST provides internationally recognized accreditation for organizations and rigorous certifications for professionals in the areas of penetration testing, incident response and Security Operations Center (SOC) services.

To share what CREST has to offer both buyers and sellers in the cybersecurity space, the current episode of The Virtual CISO Podcast features Ian Glover, President of co-founder of CREST. Hosting as always is John Verry, Pivot Point Security's CISO and Managing Partner.

Ian and John's discussion will introduce you to the key role that CREST plays worldwide in enhancing "capacity, capability and consistency" within the cyber services marketplace. Topics include:

    --  The huge value that CREST offers buyers of cybersecurity services like
        penetration testing, incident response and security operations
    --  How CREST benefits cybersecurity service provider organizations and
        individual practitioners
    --  The rigorous CREST accreditation and certification process
    --  How leveraging "CREST approved" services can help a CISO in the event of
        a data breach investigation or compliance audit

If your business is a seller or consumer of security services, you'll want to know all the ways that CREST is helping you and the industry as a whole today, and how to get the most from CREST guidance and programs.
