CESG CHECK works to secure the communications and information systems of the government and critical parts of UK national infrastructure.

CESG has traditionally provided IT health check services for HMG and the wider public sector of systems handling protectively marked information. Demand for these services has grown. Therefore, in line with similar CESG initiatives, a special partnership with industry is the most appropriate way of meeting this demand.

The IT Health Check Service, or CHECK, was developed to enhance the availability and quality of the IT health check services that are provided to Government in line with HMG policy. Companies belonging to CHECK are measured against high standards set by CESG. 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 & Conditions of CHECK

Why Have Sec-1 Chosen CHECK?

The Governmental sector is an important market to Sec-1 and its continued growth. In order to better engage our Governmental partners we have selected the CHECK accreditation to provide them with the assurance that we are fit for purpose measured against the high standards of CESG

'Following (our) initial meeting Sec-1 was requested to provide a Penetration Test for the Halcrow Group. The standard of report received has resulted in Sec-1 being the provider of choice for Penetration and Application Testing for the Halcrow Group and are retained for the foreseeable future.'
