Our approach will be unique to your organisation, your security posture, the digital estate and the goals set. Broadly speaking, each assessment will go through the following stages:
1. Scoping & prerequisites
We will work with you to the ensure that the goals set are beneficial to your organisation, the scope of the engagement has been clearly defined, communication requirements set, and everything is in place before we start the test.
Our testing typically goes through the following stages: Planning > Passive reconnaissance > Active reconnaissance > Vulnerability identification > Exploit > Post-exploitation > Purple Comms.
3. Ongoing communication
We will communicate with you throughout the engagement, to your set requirements, updating you on progress and discussing potential future actions.
5. Post-test support
We provide access to our consultants after the report has been delivered, allowing you to address specific concerns and to provide remediation advice.
We offer an optional period of retesting to allow you to verify issues have been mitigated successfully.
