How we do it


We are not just a production line of consultants that you may see once, we want to build a long term working relationship with you to fully understand your environments and ensure you remain safe and secure for the future.

Report Walk Through

Included with every test, we offer a free 1 hour online walk through of your report and issues. Our aim is to help you and your team fully understand issues, resolve them and 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 week’s notice we will charge you the cost of the proposed activity, but this will be stored as testing credit for you for you to use when you are ready. 


We want to share our knowledge with our clients and ensure you and your staff are armed to defend your environment against attack. We offer bespoke training courses tailored to your needs.
