Commissum Press Release – Caius Gurgu Achieves CREST Registered Tester (CRT) Level with CREST and Commissum
Cybersecurity specialists Commissum can announce today that Security Analyst Caius Gurgu has passed his CREST (Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers) Registered Tester (CRT) examination. Caius has passed the exam despite only being a few short months into his Penetration Testing career. This is testament to the quality of Commissum’s Graduate Development Program and Commissum’s commitment to the CREST scheme.
Having already achieved his CPSA (CREST Practitioner Security Analyst) with Commissum, the minimum level for conducting Cyber Essentials Assessments, Caius has progressed to this higher level of accreditation, building further on his skillset since he joined the company back in summer 2016. “Now that I’ve passed my CRT exam, I’d like to gain as much experience of external and internal infrastructure testing as possible,” said Caius on hearing the news that he’d passed.
“The exam was tough but I learned a lot in my preparations. The exam itself was exciting! It taught me a lot that I can now put to use in my day-to-day work.” Caius went on to say.
“The team at Commissum were fantastic, too, and I doubt I would have managed it without them.” -Caius Gurgu
“Special thanks go to my colleague Robert, who helped with many of my questions while preparing for the exam, and my team manager Boglarka, who has guided me through my whole learning process since joining Commissum. She pushed me hard with tight deadlines, but never doubted I’d be up to the challenge.”
The CPSA exam is a theory test which looks at general, overarching knowledge in information systems and key security skills, while the CRT exam is a purely practical exam, which takes this knowledge to the next level, also focusing on the tester’s skills in the field of infrastructure and basic web application security testing. Caius is the most recent member of the Commissum team to achieve his CRT, bringing the whole team in line with this high standard.
Boglarka Ronto, head of technical services at Commissum, was delighted at Caius achieving CRT level, and said “I’m thrilled that the whole team is now up to CRT level or higher, as it reinforces the skills, abilities and experience of our colleagues in a tangible way, demonstrating our ability to really add value for our clients.”ENDS
