Fidus Information Security have gained CREST accreditation for penetration testing services.

We are extremely proud to announce that we are now a Council for Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST) accredited company for penetration testing services. Obtaining CHECK in 13 months, ISO 27001 in 3 months and now CREST have been huge milestones for Fidus and they’re excited about what lies ahead.

CREST is an international not-for-profit accreditation and certification body that represents and supports the technical information security market.

For Fidus, it was important for them to provide assurance to their customers that Fidus are a trusted company who have all the correct policies, processes and procedures in place which only a trust worthy penetration company would have.

Fidus’ policies, processes and procedures have been assessed by CREST who have deemed them to be fit for purpose and they will now sit within their accredited companies for penetration testing services.
