CREST and Immersive Labs announce partnership for developing technical cyber security skills

 CREST, the international not-for-profit cyber security accreditation and certification body is partnering with Immersive Labs, the Cyber Workforce Optimization Platform, to support CREST member professionals in developing their defensive and offensive security skills.

The Immersive Labs platform will provide access to hands-on simulations of threats and mitigation techniques, allowing those preparing for CREST examinations to exercise and improve capabilities in line with the certification framework.

“We are delighted to be working with Immersive Labs to offer members a powerful, real-time alternative for ongoing skills development,” said Rowland Johnson, president of CREST. “Immersive Labs will be providing labs that are aligned to our examination framework and CREST Accredited organisations will have free access to entry level labs. They will then have the option to gain access to a wider set of labs, at a reduced cost which will be aligned to our Registered and Certified level exams. This new partnership is not only providing our members with better access to training for CREST exams but we also hope it will build a greater sense of community.”

CREST will work with Immersive Labs to put a particular focus on incident response, mapping its online, on-demand content to the exam syllabus and delivering a number of bespoke learning pathways.

“Achieving a CREST certification is a high bar, with members benefitting from an in-depth understanding of complex technical skills. Our platform will enable this, letting the community get first-hand experience of offensive and defensive capabilities in an engaging way,” said James Hadley, CEO at Immersive Labs. “This shows CREST to be a forward-thinking certification provider dedicated to furthering the development of human cyber capabilities using innovative approaches.”
