Bluelight service providers – ambulance, fire brigade police – are all open to cyberattack and information theft. Penetration testing uses hacking tools and techniques to test – and compromise – your network defences.
Penetration testing is a vital test of your people, processes and technology, helping to ensure you are ready and able to withstand a cybersecurity incident. Penetration testing is also an important tool for proving compliance with the various regulations and frameworks that govern emergency services providers.
Penetration testing exposes critical vulnerabilities
Identifying and resolving network vulnerabilities is crucial to protecting the sensitive data that your organisation holds. By placing security defences under stress, you can test resilience and effectiveness.
To achieve compliance
Demonstrating robust security provisions is an essential step towards achieving compliance with relevant frameworks including PSN ITHC, NHS DSP and GDPR.
To protect your service users
Emergency service providers store incredibly sensitive personal data belonging to officers and private individuals. Penetration testing verifies that you are upholding your duty to protect these people.
Validation of incidence response planning
Fire brigades, police forces and ambulance services will all come under cyberattack at some point. Conducting penetration testing allows you to assess whether your incidence response plans are effective and efficient.
CHECK qualified engineers scan your firewall and network assets for known vulnerabilities. We also probe software and operating systems to identify unpatched applications that could be exploited or compromised.
Physical security tests
By testing access control systems, Fidus will help you better understand your physical security provisions at each of your offices and locations.
Phishing and social engineering tests
Using social engineering and phishing techniques, we will help you expose incidences of poor practice that see employees divulging sensitive data to unauthorised parties. We’ll also help you draw up training plans to address these issues.
Red Team cyberattack scenarios
To understand how your systems and processes work together, we can arrange a full-scale cyberattack. We will place your systems under load and assess your response and effectiveness throughout.

Introduction Fidus’ R&D team identified a vulnerability within Virgin Media Super Hub 3 routers that permitted for exfiltration of sensitive information remotely, which, among other things, can be used to determine the actual, ISP issued IP address of VPN users. A vulnerability we were asked to hold back from releasing for a whole year. A […]
Introduction Quiplash – a game full of wit, banter and borderline acceptable humour… and security consultants on a lunch break. To set the scene, the date was 19th February 2020 and the mood was cheerful in the Fidus office. Lunch had just been delivered and today was the day that Mario Kart was not going […]
