Tried, Tested and Proven

Following our successful launch of RedIntel at The House of Commons last Friday, Portcullis is very pleased to announce that we have been selected as the first approved supplier of the CBEST tests. As you may know, CBEST is a new intelligence led testing framework run by The Bank of England and delivered through the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers or CREST.

The scheme has been devised to improve and test resilience to cyber attack within the financial services industry. It aims to enhance their understanding of the types of cyber attack that could undermine financial stability using tailored threat intelligence to inform the CBEST penetration test or Red Team attack that then follows.

This CBEST approved status, is a significant achievement for Portcullis and we are very keen to employ our highly skilled team of security testers in this innovative area. Through CREST we also provide a new intelligence led testing service called RedIntel for organisations outside the banking sector.

You will find a link below that outlines the wide range of services Portcullis provides as well as links to CREST and the CBEST page on The Bank of England’s website. If you would like to learn more about our CBEST and RedIntel services, please contact us at or call on 0208 868 0098.
