Vetted Staff

All of our staff are UK-based and employed full time with Armadillo Sec; we never sub-contract any of our work out to third parties. Our staff are comprehensively background checked to the BS7858:2012 standard. Additionally, our consultants are HM Government security cleared to SC or DV level, allowing the handling of HMG protectively marked data.

How we do it


We are not just a production line of consultants that you may only encounter once; instead we strive to build long term working relationships with you and to fully understand your environments, concerns and business so that you can minimise risk.

Report Walk Through

Included with every test, we offer a complimentary 1 hour online walk through of your final report and issues. Our aim is to help you and your teams fully understand issues and risks, resolve them and also prevent them from reoccurring.

No cancellation fees

We understand project deadlines can slip. If you do have to cancel at short notice we will not penalise you and instead work with you to adjust project timelines accordingly. If cancelled with at least 2 weeks’ notice, there is not charge at all. If cancelled with less than 1 weeks’ notice we will invoice you the cost of the proposed activity, but this will be stored as testing credit for you to use when testing is re-scheduled.
