As part of our routine security checks we found that the our government backed client which deals with the birth, marriage and death registration across the entirety of the UK required pen testing of their highly sensitive data content. It was our responsibility to ensure that there were no issues with any potential data breaches or any weaknesses that could be exposed.
Scope of Work
In order for us to make sure that this network is secure, we found that it would be best to pen test the network firewall and port from the ground up as to isolate and expose any potential weaknesses. As part of our process we then engaged with a 3rd party security company to carry out the tests.
On completion of the pen tests we worked with the customer to lock out the websites, modify the firewall rules in order to increase the levels of overall protection and received a signoff from the customer confirming that they were happy with the quality of service received.
Upon completion of these tests and the improved security measures set in place, the customer has been able to win further work from councils due to the high level of security which protects all sensitive data passed through the business.
