Commissum, providers of cyber security testing and consultancy services, today announces Test Analyst, Robert Cretu, has successfully completed his CREST (Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers) Registered Tester (CRT) examination.

Martin Finch, CEO of Commissum offered the following words: “Robert has consistently worked very hard over the past year, and his development is reflected in this achievement. We are pleased to welcome him as a fully-fledged member of the testing practice. As a service delivery organisation Commissum recognises the value of continuing professional development of all of its staff. We now look forward to Robert delighting our clients and carrying on the Commissum tradition of delivering outstanding penetration testing and security consultancy services.”

Robert joined Commissum in January 2014 as a year-in-industry Student Placement and has progressed rapidly since then. Robert returns to complete his undergraduate Computer Security and Forensics degree at Napier University in September 2015 but will continue his professional development with Commissum part time alongside his academic studies before returning as a full time, fully qualified Tester in 2017.

CREST Technical Examinations are highly valued and globally known in the industry and recognised as extremely difficult to pass. Robert said: “My practical, hands on experience at Commissum assisting with various aspects of security consultancy and testing has been invaluable over the past year and especially with my CREST CRT preparation. Passing is the culmination of a lot of learning and hard work. I look forward to getting into working on some of the most challenging testing assignments, projects and research that we undertake at Commissum.”

Although CREST does not specify that industry experience is needed in order to take the examination, it certainly serves as an advantage for those who have it. The fact that Robert has gained practical experience working for Commissum has helped him to answer the exam questions more effectively during the limited time frame.

Being a CREST Registered Tester brings additional responsibility, and Robert has signed the CREST Code of Conduct for Qualified Individuals which describes the standards of practice providing technical information security services. The full CREST Code of Conduct can be found on their website alongside details of their examinations.
