Dionach’s cyber security services shine with CREST STAR accreditation

Oxford, UK – 27 July 2018 – Dionach, a leading global information security consultancy based in Oxford, UK, today announces that its cyber security services have been formally awarded STAR (Simulated Targeted Attack and Response) status by CREST, the accreditation and certification body for the UK’s information security industry.

The STAR accreditation provides clients in the financial services sector with greater assurance that their IT vulnerability assessments, cyber security tests and incident response services are being delivered to the highest possible technical and service standards.

STAR-accredited providers have passed a rigorous assessment process that scrutinises every aspect of their service and verifies their ability to simulate cyber attacks based on the latest threats and techniques used by real-life criminals.

Ewan McKenzie, CEO of Dionach says: “Becoming STAR-accredited is a significant milestone for our company and reinforces our position at the forefront of the cyber security industry. It’s important for our clients – especially those in the financial services sector – to know that our penetration testing and red teaming services have been independently assessed and meet the strict criteria defined by CREST.

“I’m immensely proud of our whole team. The accreditation recognises the quality of our processes, the technical competence of our 50 consultants and our commitment to ensuring clients’ security postures are as tight as they can be. It is our role to protect clients’ critical information assets and help them reduce exposure to commercial, regulatory and reputational risks – a role that is growing in importance every month.”

Dionach has been a pioneer in the information security industry for over 20 years, has over 200 current clients and holds other industry-leading certifications including PCI and ISO 27001. The company employs over 70 staff worldwide.
