Penetration Testing Services

3GRC’s Penetration Testing Services are accredited under the CREST scheme, providing our clients with the assurance of quality at all times. Our methodologies follow a strict process building upon industry standards for network and web application security assessments such as the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)

All our testing services are performed by experienced and qualified consultants. They are designed to highlight any vulnerabilities in your organisation and to assess the resilience of your security controls to identify how attackers may be able to access your organisations systems or data providing recommendations on how to improve your defences.

The 3GRC Approach

3GRC can help your organisation develop and implement a cyber security Penetration Testing strategy, to assist in mitigating the threat of an attack and help achieve or maintain regulatory compliance all as part of a mature risk management programme. Our Penetration Testing leverages the 3GRC Platform to ensure you have a live, organic record of Penetration Testing vulnerabilities and issues which can be updated over time to clearly demonstrate risk reduction, proactively chase remediation managers, and provide a single audit trail of activities.

3GRC offer a full range of Penetration Testing Services including but not limited to:

Simple Testing Process

Our approach is to simplify the process and follow clear, simple steps.


3GRC work closely with your organisation to understand and agree the complexity of your requirements.  This also gives us the opportunity to discuss any prerequisites such as test accounts, authorisation and escalation processes. We require full agreement from an organisation before any testing can be conducted. All scoping including exchanging of information is conducted within the 3GRC Platform.


Testing will be performed by 3GRC’s experienced security consultants who hold the highest industry qualifications such as CREST & OSCP. Your assigned consultants will carry out the testing as agreed as part of the scoping exercise and update you throughout the process.


The key deliverable from the 3GRC Penetration Testing Services is a formal report, with risks populated.  This report will provide a clear understanding of any areas of risk or vulnerability and will form the basis for any remediation activities.

In addition, 3GRC will give customers access to the 3GRC Platform with the risks and vulnerabilities presented in an online format. This allows our customers to view discuss and mitigate issues all within a secure, cloud-based platform.


After testing has been completed and you have reviewed your report, you can discuss all aspects with your 3GRC consultant. This covers post-test support and guidance on remediation activities.


3GRC are passionate about our security testing and it’s a firm belief that if we conduct a remote external security assessment that we will offer a completely free re-test once the customer has been able to mitigate the issue or issues identified.
