Cyber-security firm, Capital Network Solutions (CNS), has become the first company headquartered in Wales to be CREST approved for Penetration Testing Services.
With more than 40 accreditations in 20 specialist technology areas, CNS has taken the steps to further establish themselves as a leading provider of cyber security and infrastructure solutions by gaining the prestigious CREST accreditation for their penetration testing services.
This follows on from their recent award of ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certification.
Speaking about the CREST accreditations, Sarah Edwards, managing director at CNS, said: “It is a real testament to the team that we have become the first fully Welsh based business to become CREST accredited and further establishing our ourselves as one of the UK’s leading cyber security companies by adhering to best practice and ensuring the security and quality of our information systems.
“We pride ourselves on the dedication we show by further investing in our company and staff to make sure we are fully trained and certified, so to be accredited with CREST is a great way for us to lead by example and is a testament to the amazing work our team provides, and we couldn’t have achieved it without them.”
CNS has recently established itself as one of the biggest certification bodies in the UK after certifying its 1000th Cyber Essential customer at the end of last year.
