Types of Security Testing Services

IT Governance offers the following types of security assessments, testing and technical services, in addition to the IT Governance penetration tests:

Software Penetration Tests

What is a Software Test?

In the same way that the network infrastructure needs testing to audit its security defences, software requires testing. Whether it is an application, operating system, web application or mobile application the coding can contain errors that allow malicious users to affect the security of the organisations assets.

What is the difference between a software penetration test and a software vulnerability assessment?

A software penetration test will attempt to exploit the identified vulnerabilities using the same tools and techniques as an attacker in order to gain access or ownership of the application. A Vulnerability assessment identifies the attack surface area and security posture of an organisation.

When do you need a Software Test?

After social engineering, attacks on software are the next serious threat to the security of an organisation. Software attacks can affect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of services and the data they rely on.

What exactly can you expect from a Software Test?

  • Consultation
  • Scoping
  • Reporting

Please note: Software testing does not include code review, which is a separately billable service.

Security Audits

What is a Security Audit?

A security audit is a service offered where IT Governance conducts a security review of a product – either a hardware or software product. The review focuses on the security aspects of the product and produces a report outlining how the product’s security profile matches requirements. This service covers:

  • Build reviews
  • Application reviews

When do you need a Security Audit?

A Security Audit is recommended when you are considering purchasing a new product, or prior to rollout of a new service or product. In particular, a Build Review would be conducted for a new build of a server or workstation prior to the installation being cloned as a gold template for rollout across an organisation.

What exactly can you expect from a Security Audit?

  • Consultation with the client
  • Scoping of your requirements
  • Testing and reporting

Please note: This is not a fixed price service and is dependent of the scope that will be conducted in consultation with the client. The review can include all common operating systems.

Cookies Audits

What is a Cookies Audit?

A cookies audit is an examination of your organisation’s website to identify all cookies and other mechanisms of retaining visitors’ information to identify whether the site complies with the Privacy and Communications Regulations.

When do you need a Cookies Audit?

A cookies audit should be undertaken on any UK and EU website to ensure it complies with EU and UK regulations covering identification of visitors to a website. The audit should be conducted after changes and updates to ensure new cookies not covered by previous audits are identified and added to the sites cookie policy.

What exactly can you expect from a Cookies Audit:

  • Consultation and scoping of the test requirements
  • Testing and reporting
  • Consultation

Our PECR Cookies Audit Service quickly and cost-effectively identifies the cookies that your site downloads onto visiting computers and provides specific guidance as to the steps that you should consider in order to meet the compliance requirements of the new Cookies Law, the revised Privacy and Communications Regulations.

Architecture Reviews

What is an Architecture Review?

An architecture review is a security review of an organisation’s infrastructure to determine the security posture of the infrastructure architecture. It will identify weaknesses within the architecture and make recommendations for improving the security posture and reducing the attack surface area.

When do you need an Architecture Review?

This type of service is recommended during the deployment of a new infrastructure architecture or after changes and upgrades have been made.

What exactly can you expect from an Architecture Review?

  • Consultation and scoping of the test requirements
  • Testing and reporting
  • Post-test consultation

Please note: Architecture Reviews are focused on auditing of the infrastructure. Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery aspects are not included in the test but can be offered as a separate service.
