Video: Crest - David King on the launch of the penetration testing accreditation body

Penetration testing now has its own not-for-profit standards-based accreditation organisation in Crest, the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers. David King, Head of Information and Risk Management at Aviva talks about the benefits Crest will bring to the industry.

The new association, with its tough exam, should ensure end-users will be better able to evaluate which suppliers of security penetration testing services are reliable vendors, as Crest-approval will provide a means of quality assurance.
