What is a Cyber Security Health Check or IT Health Check (ITHC)?

A Cyber Security Health Check is a comprehensive assessment conducted by cyber security professionals, employing both automated techniques and human expertise, to evaluate an organisation’s cybersecurity measures.

The goal is to identify vulnerabilities and provide a detailed, actionable plan to enhance the organisation’s security posture, ensuring that resources and infrastructure for maximum security impact are optimally allocated.

what is included in your current cyber security health check

What is included in the Cyber Security Health Check?

The Current Cyber Security Health Check we offer is strategically centred around two highly regarded standards in the field of cyber security.

Firstly, the renowned NCSC’s 10 Steps to Security is designed for SMBs to enhance their security posture. Secondly, we incorporate the principles of the NIST Cyber Security Framework, providing a comprehensive evaluation of your cybersecurity health checks your organisation’s cyber risk status. This dual-standard approach ensures we deliver a thorough and robust assessment of your organisation’s cyber security health.

NIST Cyber Security Health Check

In addition to our comprehensive Cyber Security and Health Check service, we offer a specialised NIST Cyber Security Health Check. This service centres around the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF), a proven guideline for managing and reducing cybersecurity health risks. Our NIST CSF assessment focuses on the five core functions of the framework:


Develop an understanding to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, assets, data, and capabilities.


Implement safeguards to ensure the delivery of critical infrastructure services.


Identify the occurrence of a cybersecurity event promptly.


Take action regarding a detected cybersecurity incident.


Maintain plans for resilience and restore any capabilities or services impaired due to a cybersecurity incident.

Cyber Security Health Check Methodology

This exercise is structured around the NCSC’s 10 steps to cyber security, ensuring a thorough assessment. It ensures that every aspect of your organisation’s cyber security and compliance standards is assessed, including:

  • Identification and protection of your assets
  • Detection of potential threats
  • Response to and management of incidents
  • Recovery and restoration after an incident

By following this approach and implementing the overall cyber security software essentials, you can ensure comprehensive and effective cyber security for your organisation.
