What is the CREST OVS Programme?

Developed by CREST, in consultation with the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), the CREST OWASP Verification Standard (OVS) is a framework which provides a scalable and consistent approach to web and mobile application security standards.

The CREST OWASP Verification Standard (OVS) programme sits as a specialism of the CREST Penetration Testing Discipline. It provides assurance that suppliers have the necessary competencies and methodology to deliver a quality assessment using the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) and Mobile Application Security Verification Standard (MASVS).

Organisations that can conduct the OVS demonstrate a robust and repeatable methodology supplemented by the appropriate internal quality and governance controls that broadly align with ISO/IEC 17025:2017.
