The Center for Internet Security has announced the launch of a joint initiative with CREST, an international not-for-profit accreditation and certification body, to help advance security and resilience to achieve better global cybersecurity.
As cyber threats continue to escalate to unprecedented levels globally, CIS and CREST are launching the CIS Controls Accreditation programme to provide organisations a way to show customers and partners that their cybersecurity posture meets the best practice guidance as set forth in the CIS Critical Security Controls (CIS Controls), underpinned by the rigorous standards of CREST accreditation.
Establishing, maintaining and proving an organisation’s security posture remains a high priority for business, government and regulatory bodies. CIS Controls Accreditation is an exclusive opportunity for CIS SecureSuite Members (Controls, Consulting & Services and Product Vendor) and CREST Members to offer consulting services to end-user organisations who wish to demonstrate that their implementation of security best practices is guided and externally assessed in accordance with the training and validation defined by two renowned authorities in cybersecurity.
“The ability to digest all the data and controls from various devices and systems is essential in this massive shift to evidencing security,” said Tom Brennan, Executive Director, CREST Americas Region. “Together, CIS Controls and CREST accreditations give our joint members an accelerated path to meet risk and compliance requirements in addition to providing a methodology for continuously monitoring their security posture. By using CREST on top of the CIS Controls, security professionals can monitor security from infrastructure that can be observed, tested and enhanced.”Click below to share this article
