Web Application Testing Certification For RandomStorm

Randomstorm : 14 December, 2011  (Company News)
CREST Gold Standard achieved by RandomStorm engineer in web application security testing
Web Application Testing Certification For RandomStorm
RandomStorm's senior security engineer, Robin Wood, has gained the Certified Application Tester qualification from the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST).  The CREST examination is a senior level qualification that measures candidates’ practical ability to discover vulnerabilities in Web applications. It is recognised as being the “gold standard” of security testing.

Following this latest accreditation, RandomStorm is now a CHECK Green Light company for both Web Testing and Infrastructure and has CHECK Team Leaders certified with both the CREST and TIGER schemes.

CREST works with organisations to understand current security testing requirements and translate these into course components. This standards-based approach has introduced proven expertise and professionalism to application security testing. The rigour of the qualifications ensures that organisations that hire CREST companies will be working with professionals with up-to-date knowledge of Web application vulnerabilities. This enables testers to advise companies on ways to improve their defences against the latest techniques used by hackers and cybercriminals.

Robin Wood (@digininja) stated, “I am delighted to have passed the CREST Certified Application Tester exam. Application vulnerabilities were at the root of the majority of the major security breaches this year and will continue to pose a threat as new applications are introduced. It’s important that we can help our customers to improve their security posture by identifying both common and less obvious vulnerabilities in their applications.”

Commenting on the latest accreditation, Andrew Mason, Technical Director and co-founder of RandomStorm said, “CREST qualifications are the gold standard in web application testing and can only be achieved by security professionals at the top of their game. We congratulate Robin on successfully achieving this senior level and winning CHECK Team Leader status for web application testing for the RandomStorm team.”

RandomStorm provides vulnerability scanning and intrusion detection services to help companies in the public sector, retail, hospitality, financial and utility industries to improve their security posture. The company is a CESG CHECK security consultancy and certified as a Qualified Security Assessor and Approved Scanning Vendor by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
