If you’re handling information that is RESTRICTED (IL3), CONFIDENTIAL (IL4) or SECRET (IL5) then you will require an annual IT Health Check conducted to CESG CHECK standards.
It’s easy enough to find a company who holds the relevant qualification to deliver a project of that nature, just take a look at the CESG website and you’ll find a list of around 25 ‘Green’ accredited companies, but does this mean they all deliver the same standard of work and reporting? All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.
Are they all easy to work with? Will they be flexible enough to deal with the inevitable slips in the project time scales? Are they able to assign a CHECK Team Leader who was among the first in the Country and involved in developing the standards?
We do not believe that simply meeting the minimum standards should ever be good enough, especially when the network and the data under investigation is as important as on a RESTRICTED network or higher.
If you require a CESG IT Health Check one of the team is always willing to discuss any specific requirements or questions you might have so feel free to contact us.
