Empowering you to get ahead while demonstrating your CoCo compliance
“SureCloud’s IT Health Check ensures you can always be certain of your CoCo compliance. Underpinned by the SureCloud platform, our IT Health Check raises your security posture to a new level, identifying vulnerabilities earlier so remedial actions can be taken sooner to keep you ahead of the game.”- Luke Potter, Cybersecurity Practice Director, SureCloud
Is it enough to just show your PSN CoCo compliance?
Guidance issued by the Cabinet Office requires you to submit PDF documentation that demonstrates your compliance with the Public Services Network (PSN) Code of Connection (CoCo), which protects the PSN against threats, such as opportunistic hackers and abuses of business processes.
The problem is, for the penetration testing (ITHC) requirement of the PSN CoCo, all the PDF report does is provide a snapshot of your vulnerabilities and demonstrates that you were compliant at a specific moment in time. It doesn’t show the full picture, and it’s impossible for you to derive any value from it to feedback into your organization.
From a post-test results management perspective, which is where your work really starts after an ITHC is delivered, trying to manage remediation from a static PDF document can quickly become a nightmare and involvement significant amount of manual process.
Beyond basic compliance
“Getting the scope of an ITHC right is one of the most important aspects in ensuring that the ITHC is a worthwhile exercise and provides you with the correct level of assurance.”- Cabinet Office
A PDF report may reassure you about your CoCo compliance but imagine if your IT Health Check went beyond the basics. Just think about the value an IT Health Check could really deliver to your organization…
