Wales' First CREST Accredited HQ

We are pleased to announce that CNS are the first company headquartered in Wales to become CREST approved for our Penetration Testing Services.

The prestigious accreditation establishes us as a leading provider of penetration testing and cyber security services and is hot off the tail of our recent award of ISO 27001 and ISO 9001 certifications.

Penetration testing provides a very meaningful way for businesses to identify and address potential vulnerabilities in their systems or security investments. Due to the importance and implications of this testing it is vital that trusted and experienced penetration testing providers are used, to ensure that testing is conducted as safely as possible to avoid any possible damage or disruption.

This partnership with CREST allows us to demonstrate that we conduct our testing in a highly technical and ethical manner having undergone a rigorous assessment process.

Ian Glover, President of CREST says, “CREST is delighted to welcome CNS as a member company. By becoming a CREST member, CNS is demonstrating its commitment to delivering the highest professional security services standards to its customers.”

Our Managing Director, Sarah Edwards, says, “It is a real testament to the team that we have become the first fully Welsh based business to become CREST accredited. The award further establishes CNS as one of the leading cyber security companies in the UK.”

What is CREST?

CREST is recognised globally as the cyber assurance body for the technical security industry and provides internationally recognised and rigorously assessed accreditations for companies who offer penetration testing, cyber incident and threat intelligence services.

Full information about CREST’s work can be found on their website.

What does CREST accreditation stand for?

The esteemed new accreditation means organisations can be assured that our Penetration Testing services stand out from other UK companies, and are:

  • Delivered using best practice policies and procedures
  • Carried out by highly-qualified individuals with up-to-date knowledge and skills to tackle vulnerabilities and techniques used by real attackers
  • Covered by rigorous and enforceable codes of conduct

Here at Capital Network Solutions, we hold more than 40 accreditations in 20 specialist technology areas and have recently established ourselves as one of the biggest certification bodies in the UK compared to other cyber security companies, certifying our 1600th Cyber Essentials customer mid 2018.

Sarah says, “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.”
