Professionals who will be pursuing a career in Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing

Prerequiste: Basic Knowledge of OS, Network Operations.

The CREST Practitioner Security Analyst (CPSA) is an entry level exam that tests a candidate’s knowledge in assessing operating systems and common network services.

The examination covers a common set of core skills and knowledge. The candidate must demonstrate that they have the knowledge to perform basic infrastructure and web application vulnerability scans using commonly available tools and to interpret the results to locate security vulnerabilities.

CPSA candidates will be able to demonstrate that they are qualified for hands on Pen Test Roles (indicative of 2 years experience).
The CPSA has no pre-requisite but a valid CPSA certification is the pre-requisite for the CRT.
