Commissum is proud to announce that it has been CREST accredited for Security Operations Centre (SOC) services, further strengthening its current CREST accreditations comprising Penetration Testing, Vulnerability Assessment, and CREST STAR (intelligence-led penetration testing) and adding to other industry related certifications.
Holding CREST SOC accreditation demonstrates to clients and other stakeholders that Commissum services delivered from the SOC meet industry and regulatory standards, and professionals are highly skilled, knowledgeable, and competent. SOC practitioners are further certified to individual CREST certifications themselves, along with many other academic, industry, and vendor-specific qualifications, meaning the people, process, and technology within the SOC are industry leading.
Following the external audit, carried out against six key areas and their subcategories, Commissum has now been formally recognised as providing CREST SOC services, one of only 28 companies currently accredited globally. Moreover, Commissum additionally holds ISO 17025 accredited (digital forensic and incident response) lab status, meaning events detected by the SOC can be forensically investigated and the findings reported to a court-approved standard – a unique and powerful combination of accreditations and capabilities within the marketplace – and the only organisation globally to hold this combination at the time of publication, providing a truly, end-to-end ‘Defend, Detect, Respond, Recover’ service.
Sarah Smith, Head of Commissum’s SOC, had the following words to offer:
“We place client security at the heart of everything we do. We create true partnerships and clients know they can rely on Commissum to protect and manage the security of their ever-changing technology landscapes, whether traditional IT, cloud, operational technology, or IoT, we have it covered.
Gaining Crest SOC accreditation independently validates the quality and value of service that Commissum provides. Alongside our other accreditations, we can now be the sole source of security services to prospective and current clients.
The credit for gaining CREST goes to the entire SOC team, whose diligence, hard work, deep experience, and commitment to continuous improvement and development ensures that we will provide a quality service to clients for many years to come.”
