Penetration Testing

Your IT systems probably hold data which is critical to your organisation. You may have created a system that you believe is secure, that uses assured solutions and appropriate security procedures. But how sure are you that your system does not have any vulnerabilities and that it has been correctly configured?

A CHECK Service Provider can analyse the systems or networks you rely on to carry out your business securely and effectively by conducting a number of tests designed to identify any weaknesses utilising publicly known vulnerabilities and common configuration faults.

Companies belonging to CHECK are measured against high standards we set. Therefore, HMG and CNI customers can be assured that they will receive a high quality service if the work is carried out under the Terms and Conditions of CHECK.

You will receive a report detailing any vulnerabilities and recommending effective security counter measures.

When data is more sensitive the NCSC provides a service for the more sensitive government or CNI systems, processing SECRET and TOP SECRET material and occasionally other agreed requirements. To register interest in this service please contact us.

For further details of the service you can expect under CHECK, please refer to the Service Provision Guidelines. These form part of the CHECK Terms and Conditions of Contract, which each CHECK company signs up to annually.

More information on using the CHECK services, when it is suitable and providing feedback can be found. You may also find the information aimed at companies interested in becoming a CHECK service provider useful.

Information for companies interested in becoming a CHECK service provider, including the fundamental principles, and composition of the team is also available.
