Entrusting your IT systems and sensitive data to a stranger for PEN testing can be a risky business. The Council for Registered Ethical Security Testers (CREST) is a non-profit organisation which aims to bring high quality and constancy to the global technical cyber security sector. CREST provide internationally recognised accreditations for organisations and individuals providing penetration testing services, ensuring you’re in safe hands.
Security services from a CREST member company means that you can expect the very best from your penetration tester.
Chess CyberSecurity is proud to announce that we are fully CREST certified and ready to carry out full penetration testing.
‘Chess CyberSecurity (formerly Foursys) has been performing penetration tests for over 3 years. Achieving CREST accreditation and becoming a CREST Penetration Testing service provider is the natural progression for an organisation that is focused on delivering outstanding information security services.’

So, what is penetration testing?
Chess CyberSecurity’s external infrastructure penetration tests will enable you to find and fix potential security-related vulnerabilities in your IT networks.
Our specialist penetration testers use a combination of automated and advanced real-world techniques that are closely aligned with the Open Source Security Testing Methodology (OSSTM) to scan your network to ensure it is as secure as possible.
Chess CyberSecurity will provide a detailed penetration test report detailing any threats or vulnerabilities found and the recommended remedial actions. Threats and vulnerabilities will be ranked in order of criticality. The report will also contain an executive summary explain the risks in business terms.
Why would your organisation need to carry out a penetration test?
There are several reasons your organisation might need to carry out a penetration test, including:
- To determine critical vulnerabilities in your environment (which hackers might use to access or exploit sensitive data)
- To meet industry regulatory compliance such as PCI DSS, ISO 27001
- To stay aware and informed about your organisation’s risk level, reducing the risk of attach and data loss
- Enable your organisation to prioritise risks
- Improve your business security stance.
If you are concerned about the security level of your organisation then it is always a good idea to carry out a Pen test. If you are developing or making significant changes to applications, infrastructure of operational processes then we encourage you to get in touch with one of our specialists.
