WE WILL NEVER RAISE YOUR CSS SCORE FOR MONEY!

CER was initially founded as a project of Hacken, but today we are an independent and separate project under Hacken’s house of brands led by Konstantin Oleshko, Product Owner at CER. However, we still have the same mission and values. 

CER strives to help crypto exchanges and blockchain projects (including DeFi) to maintain the highest cybersecurity standards to protect users’ digital assets and personal data from a wide range of cyber threats. Currently, CER works towards making the cryptocurrency market and DeFi projects more secure by providing the list of crypto exchanges ranking them by their cyber safety.

The transparency of the cer.live is achieved by a few means:

  1. CER is independent and separate. We disapprove of the CSS score selling and different manipulations with it. We will never put any company higher on the list for money or tokens. 
  2. Any exchange can increase its CSS score ONLY by sending us proof of penetration testing and bug bounty programs as well as by enhancing the user security and server security.
  3. The proof of penetration tests and a bug bounty program can come from any reputable cybersecurity company 
  4. All metrics and our methodology are transparent and can be found here.

The main objective of CER is to prevent users from trading on unsecured cryptocurrency exchanges”, said Konstantin Oleshcko, Product Owner at CER.

Cybersecurity Marketplace

Our next step is to build a cybersecurity marketplace. To bring more decentralization and confidence in the CER rating, we will display a list of companies providing audit services so that each interested user can order services from them and submit a report to us.

Any cybersecurity company that conducts security audits can contact us and be added to the marketplace. 

By doing this, we want to make sure that every user understands the transparency of the cer.live platform. 

About CER

Since 2018, CER has reviewed 280+ crypto exchanges and performed dozens of complex security assessments of well-reputed exchanges, resulting in the CER score has become an important indicator of trust for tens of millions of crypto users around the world. In July 2020, cybersecurity data provided by the CER.live platform became a part of CoinGecko’s TrustScore
