Cyber Security Health Check.

Our Cyber Security Health Check measures your organisation’s security controls against those recommended by the National Cyber Security Centre in their “10 Steps to Cyber Security”.

What are Cyber Security Health Checks?

A Cyber Security Health Check – known as a Penetration Test – is a comprehensive security evaluation that mimics the tactics of a real-world threat actor, aiming to penetrate an organisation’s physical or digital assets and services.

Our team of security experts conducts a Cyber Security Health Check using a number of industry-leading approaches such as testing internal and external infrastructure, mobile applications, wireless infrastructure, cloud service configurations and social engineering tactics. It can include methods such as sending phishing emails to capture credentials or executing social engineering exercises to infiltrate systems.

Unlike Vulnerability Management, which relies on a known set of “in the wild” vulnerabilities, a Cyber Security Health Check depends on the expertise and resourcefulness of the penetration tester to exploit an IT system – and our team of qualified, professional testers support Cyber Security Health Checks for all organisations of all size and sector.

What are the benefits of Cyber Security Health Checks

Cyber Security Health Checks serve as an essential defence strategy for organisations aiming to mitigate their risk against hacking and data loss. They offer a robust understanding of your organisation’s information security status and act as the cornerstone of your security foundation.

A Penetration Test, undertaken by Ascentor’s qualified and seasoned penetration testers, delivers a high level of assurance in the security of the system under test and establishes a technical security baseline.

Our Cyber Security Health Checks are instrumental in identifying vulnerabilities in your systems or processes that could be exploited by internal or external threats, leading to data theft or loss. Our Cyber Security Health Checks meet the requirements of several regulatory initiatives and compliance standards such as ISO 27001, PCI DSS, SOC2 and GDPR.

Ascentor’s Cyber Security Health Check services adhere to industry-leading methodologies such as PTES, NIST and OWASP. Our testers come with years of experience and hold industry-leading qualifications including CREST and the Cyber Scheme.
