Government Connect Secure Extranet is a secure, private wide
area network that enables secure interactions between connected
local authorities and other GSi connected organisations.
In order to connect to it, local authorities need to sign up to
the Code of Connection (CoCo) that
defines the minimum standards and processes that an authority must
comply with. As GCSX is a secure, accredited,
fully-managed service that is hosted from geographically separate
data centres, providing data security and network resilience at all
times, GCSX CoCo requires local authorities to
undergo penetration testing before connecting to it, to assure the
integrity of the network.
GCSx CoCo specifically suggests vulnerability
scanning as part of an IT Health Check. While testing by a CHECK
accredited company is not mandated when protectively marked
material is not present, it is recommended in the Code.
As a Green light CHECK accredited company, our
Check test will help you to establish the risks on your IT
assets and how they are being managed. Our IT Health Check will
support many aspects of GCSX CoCo
assurance. From a high-level risk assessment to
full penetration testing, we will provide recommendations to help
you fully meet your compliance.
