Systemically-important financial institutions that form part of the UK's Critical National Infrastructure need to remain resilient to cyber attack. To help them achieve this, the Bank of England has launched the CBEST scheme, with Digital Shadows being one of the few companies accredited to undertake the Threat Intelligence component of this work. The intelligence-led approach to a CBEST test mimics the actions of cyber attackers intent on stealing, compromising or destroying organizational assets that have financial, operational, intellectual, confidential or reputational value to both the target institution and the wider economy of the United Kingdom.

 CBEST logo

Digital Shadows was one of the original vendors who worked with the Bank of England, CREST and the wider InfoSec community to define a framework for developing the CBEST test. We therefore have the capability and experience to provide clients with intelligence of the standard required for CBEST and STAR testing purposes.

For further detail about our CBEST reports, please see the blue box below.

How CBEST Works

Should you wish to engage with us, the work will typically consist of three phases:


Targeting Report

On the basis of the Threat Intelligence Report we will emulate a threat actor's approach to researching a target's digital footprint. A Targeting Report containing the results of our reconnaissance will then form the basis of our handover discussions with your security test provider.


Deliver Baseline Report

Having understood your critical information assets, risks and social media policy, we will configure Digital Shadows SearchLight™ to meet your requirements. As part of this process we will issue a Baseline Report covering historical incidents.

Threat Intelligence

Threat Intelligence Report

Working in tandem with Digital Shadows SearchLight™, and other intelligence gathering and analysis facilities at our disposal, we will generate a credible picture of the current threat situation and issue a Threat Intelligence Report containing the results of our research.
