The Initial Services

  • Automated Penetration Testing

  • Manual Penetration Testing

  • Consultancy

  • 6 month review for other services

Automated Penetration Testing

  • On demand testing for potential vulnerabilities on external systems and websites

  • Testing is specifically designed to check for the most common vulnerabilities

  • Continuously updated vulnerability database

  • Easy to use web interface for management of scanning and reporting

  • Provides remediation advice on securing vulnerabilities

Manual Penetration Testing

  • Manual testing by experienced and certified testers, carried out to industry standards

  • Team members have wide experience of common educational applications

  • A complete service from scoping, project management, through to testing and reporting

  • Report provides executive overview, graphical summary and detailed analysis


  • Janet has had the skills internally, however has lacked the route

  • Supporting the outcomes from penetration testing

  • ... also providing support for security issues arising from the work of CSIRT

  • ... and other security work, best practises, security management incident response training

Key Points

  • Service as normal for existing ESISS customers, including price

  • Same certified testing team

  • For the sector, by the sector

  • Several new contracts since taking ESISS into Janet


  • How does penetration testing help your organisation?

  • Part of an audit: security, IT, financial

  • Compliance: PCI-DSS, data protection

  • To improve your security


  • Penetration testing won’t make a system 100% secure (nothing will)

  • Reduces the likelihood that the system can be compromised, and so reduces the risk

  • Demonstrates a certain standard of care towards your information


  • Perhaps around your most sensitive assets and applications

  • When new applications are first deployed

  • As part of the QA and release processes for software development.

  • When needed - on demand

  • Scheduled - check for unexpected changes, new vulnerabilities

  • A mix of the above depending on the risks
