CREST exam cheat-sheet scandal: New temp chairman at UK infosec body as lawyers and ex-copper get involved


Re: Having to sign an NDA

Why would you accept CHECK? (Respectfully it sounds like you don’t know the difference from that comment).

CHECK is just Tiger/CyberScheme or CREST + SC clearance.

So by accepting CHECK you’ll implicitly be accepting CREST people.

Also if you’re a commercial entity and not related to government you won’t be able to get a CHECK test, you might get a “CHECK-like” test but NCSC frown upon them greatly.

What should a customer do? What I always recommend customers do, ask for bio’s and if they don’t help make a decision, get on the phone and have a chat.
