IT Health Check
Advanced penetration testing to
identify vulnerable areas
What is an IT Health Check?
An IT Health Check is an annual assessment required for public sector organisations using the government’s Public Services Network (PSN). It examines all aspects of IT security to ensure that any weaknesses and vulnerabilities are identified and managed. It has a special focus on security or operational flaws that could potentially create unauthorised access points to the network and place the integrity of the PSN at risk – intentionally or unintentionally.
IT Health Check certification has been primarily designed as a method of maintaining high levels of security for businesses tasked with storing, handling, and managing particularly sensitive data relating to the public sector. This includes government bodies, educational establishments, healthcare, and more.
Benefits of an IT Health Check
This government-mandated IT Health Check provides a comprehensive overview of IT safety and security, highlighting room for improvement.
IT Health Check is tailored to individual businesses depending on scope, but typically looks at:
Internal and external
Security of web applications and servers
Mobile device management
Security controls, protocols, and processes
Ultimately, the IT Health Check is a mandatory requirement for any central or local government body or public sector organisation needing to use the PSN.
