How we work
Scope and sign off
The initial contact, scoping, and the creation of the statement of work, are handled by our engagement team with input from a technical consultant.
Project planning and management
Our projects team become the primary point of contact and are responsible for handling scheduling, gathering pre-requisites and managing the delivery of the review.
Completion and reporting
The technical team will complete the review and produce a set of reports, which will then pass through several stages of technical review and quality assurance.
Once the report is delivered, our team are available to do a walkthrough of the findings, answer questions, or provide re-testing of any remediation actions.
In May 2013, Insomnia Security became the first New Zealand based IT security company to become an accredited member of CREST, the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers. This certification organisation originated in the UK government CHECK programme as a requirement for companies supplying security testing services to the UK government and later adopted by financial organisations. The Australasian division was formed in 2012, with Insomnia Security as an early supporter of this initiative.
When engaging a CREST Approved organisation, you can be confident that the work will be carried out by qualified individuals with up to date knowledge of the latest vulnerabilities and techniques used by real attackers, backed up by a company with appropriate methodologies for the secure storage and protection of your data.
