Organisations across the globe join CREST Community Supporter initiative

November 2023 by Marc Jacob

CREST, the international not-for-profit, membership body representing the global cyber security industry, has announced its first nine Community Supporters, following the initiative’s launch in July. The CREST Community Supporter initiative gives organisations with a shared interest in raising standards in the global cyber security industry, a tangible way to support CREST in its mission to build capability, capacity, consistency and collaboration.

“I am thrilled to welcome our first nine Community Supporters” said Nick Benson, CREST CEO, “To meet the vast array of challenges facing the world of cyber we must join forces and be serious about open and effective collaboration. Developing relationships and formalising them through our supporter initiative is key to our mission and each of these fantastic organisations will play an important role in helping us build a globally resilient cyber security industry.

“By combining the strengths of the cyber security service providers that make up the CREST membership with our new Community Supporters, the whole cyber ecosystem can be brought together to solve the most pressing and complex problems of the day.”

The nine CREST Community Supporters joining the initiative are:
• Center for Internet Security (CIS) - a community-driven nonprofit, responsible for the CIS Controls® and CIS Benchmarks™, globally recognized best practices for securing IT systems and data. CREST currently works with CIS to deliver the CIS Controls Accreditation.
• Cloud Security Alliance - a global non-profit organisation dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
• Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA) - a non-profit organisation that is working to improve the cybersecurity of our global digital ecosystem by enabling near real-time, high-quality cyber threat information sharing.
• Global Anti Scam Alliance (GASA) - an organisation dedicated to protecting consumers worldwide from scams, by raising awareness, enabling hands on tools and facilitating knowledge sharing.
• Global Cyber Alliance - an international non-profit organisation dedicated to eradicating cyber risk and improving our connected world.
• Global Resilience Federation - a nonprofit creator and operator of threat information sharing communities. It serves as a hub and integrator for support, analysis, and cross-sector intelligence exchange among information sharing and analysis centres (ISACs), organizations (ISAOs), and computer emergency readiness/response teams (CERTs)
• ISC2 – a world leading member organisation for cybersecurity professionals, driven by a vision of a safe and secure cyber world
• Stott & May Consulting - specialists in both technology and neurodiversity consulting services. CREST is currently partnering with them on an innovative neurodiversity training programme
• The Security Institute - launched in 1999 the organisation strives to promote the highest possible standards of integrity and professional competence in the security industry.

The Community Supporter initiative was launched by CREST to collaborate with organisations and bodies who share CREST’s core values and mission in raising standards in cyber security across the globe.

CREST Community Supporters believe and share in CREST’s goals and want to support the cyber security industry in a tangible way. There are three supporter levels - Silver, Gold, and Platinum - which offer a wide range of benefits including closer collaboration with CREST, promotional support, event discounts, CREST exam vouchers and more.
