CRTSA Course Overview

The C-Registered Technical Security Architect (CRTSA) course will provide candidates’ knowledge and expertise in a common set of core skills and knowledge for systems architects.   In preparation for the role of Technical Security Architect, it is important that candidates understand its purpose which can typically be summarised as driving beneficial security change into a business through the development or review of architectures so that they:

  • Fit the business requirements for security
  • Mitigate the risks and conform to relevant security policies
  • Balance information risk against the cost of countermeasures

Successful candidates will have a strong technical ability aligned with experience to recommend high level solutions.  The exam assumes that without adequate technical understanding it is not possible to perform a satisfactory and meaningful risk assessment of the implications of a particular architecture.  Success will confer CREST Registered status to the individual.
