How would your systems handle a real cyber-attack?

Catastrophic failures could occur within your organisation if information risks are not managed correctly.

System software, applications configuration/maintenance, and user management/administration are just some of the information risks that your organisation could be exposed to right now.

The only way to know if your organisation could handle a cyber-attack is to let our team of accredited penetration testers hack your systems using our simulated ethical penetration testing service.

RightCue Assurance has CREST penetration testing certification, demonstrating that our services are conducted to the highest legal, ethical, and technical standards.

What is penetration testing?

What is penetration testing?

Penetration testing services, commonly known as ‘pen testing’, use simulated hacking to expose vulnerabilities within your cyber security systems that might enable criminal activity.

Existing vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your systems, network infrastructure and process are all thoroughly explored. This includes actions and habits of your staff that could lead to data breaches.

What is CREST accredited penetration testing?

CREST is an international accreditation body for technical information security organisations, ensuring they meet the highest standards of quality and service. There are many benefits to choosing a CREST certified company for your penetration testing, including:


  • Compliance – CREST accreditation is recognised by many regulators and compliance bodies, so choosing CREST approved penetration testing can help you to meet your compliance obligations.
  • Assurance of quality – CREST certified penetration testing providers are assessed annually to ensure that they meet the highest standards.
  • Comprehensive coverage – CREST accredited companies have the skills to test a wide range of IT systems and networks, including networks, applications, databases, and cloud environments.
  • Expertise and experience – CREST certified penetration testing companies employ experienced and qualified penetration testers who have the skills and knowledge to identify and exploit vulnerabilities.
  • Peace of mind – gives you the peace of mind knowing that your IT systems and networks are being tested to the highest standards.

Pen testing has many advantages for your organisation:

  • Cyber-defence capabilities are tested – simulated attacks familiarise you with malicious intruder tactics so that you can create a protection strategy that will defend you in real-life scenarios
  • Websites and web applications are tested for handover to third parties before go-live – confirming that changes to the network have not introduced any security risks
  • Pen testing helps avoid costly disruption to business – critical systems, networks, and other resources that cyber-attacks could cause
  • Compliance with regulations and certifications (e.g. PCI, ISO27001, other security standards) – industry and legal compliance requirements may dictate that your organisation undergoes pen testing to prove the integrity of your IT security and risk mitigation
  • Trust is maintained – reassure all your stakeholders about the rigours of your system security to retain their confidence and loyalty

RightCue will be able to provide an expert independent review of your systems and processes. This external perspective is comprehensive and often carries more validity with key decision makers and investors than any internal evaluation.
