Working with a CHECK Accredited Penetration Testing Provider

Falanx Cyber is accredited to CHECK status with a green label from the NCSC – meaning we meet all the contractual requirements to undertake CHECK work.

What is CHECK?

CHECK is an umbrella term by the NCSC to describe companies providing penetration testing services and methodologies with staff that hold NCSC approved qualifications and security experience.

What companies are most likely to use CHECK accredited services?

Public sector organisations, government departments and organisations that form the UK’s critical national infrastructure (CNI).

Any data on a company’s network marked OFFICAL should be tested by a CHECK accredited penetration test provider. Any network with data marked SECRET or above should discuss requirements with the NCSC.

Greater assurance for all businesses

By choosing a CHECK accredited penetration testing provider you’ll benefit from:

  • The highest standards of delivery and reporting as the provider has been assessed by the NCSC.
  • Greater assurance against loss – NCSC place stringent requirements around storage and the handling of data.
  • Trusted testers – penetration testers working under CHECK must hold SC clearance as a minimum
  • Penetration testers must meet strict qualification requirements and all qualifications require re-testing so companies can be confident that their penetration testers have the latest techniques and knowledge.
