Our Services

First Base have provided cyber security testing, consultancy and training services since 1989.

Cyber Resilience

Cyber resilience and cyber hygiene are essential strategies to counter known and unknown threats from cyberspace. Our consultancy and gap analysis services help you defend your organisation in this ever-changing threat landscape, optimising your cyber resilience activities to protect your business and obtain the best return on your investment.

Threat and Risk

Adopting a threat-led security strategy is a critical response to increasing attacks and constrained budgets. We deliver threat assessments and red team engagements in a practical and pragmatic way. We identify, analyse and prioritise the risks to your organisation, then plan and execute red team scenarios that provide a real-world assessment of your cyber defences.

Cyber Awareness

People shouldn’t be the weakest link in cyber security, they need to be your human firewall. Engaging, real world stories help staff understand the threats and how to reduce the risk to their company and to themselves. Our unique approach provides everyone with the knowledge and skills to defend your organisation.

Managed Cyber Services

Outsourcing penetration tests, anti-phishing campaigns and awareness training is standard practice. Our managed services go further, reducing your overheads and freeing your staff for more strategic activities. We provide the administrative support, project management and reporting, all tailored to your organisation.

Penetration Testing

We have been at the forefront of penetration testing for almost three decades. A successful test requires creative and skilled specialists supported by their peers, so that’s how we work. Every team member invests heavily in research, delivering expert testing services for everything from web applications to infrastructure, mobile apps to the Internet of Things.

Compliance Testing

Penetration testing is an integral part of many regulatory and legal frameworks, including PCI DSS, Cyber Essentials, GDPR and ISO 27001. As a CREST member company and a Cyber Essentials Certifying Body, our compliance testing services are designed to deliver penetration tests that meet or exceed each of these standards.

Gowling WLG (UK) Ltd

It was great to get frequent feedback on the progress from your team. The report is great, going into sufficient detail around the methods and vulnerabilities to the extent where no further technical contact was necessary.

In the course of a business case preparation, I asked First Base to scan one of my most sensitive environments. The team worked with adequate caution, finding critical vulnerabilities nevertheless. Jointly we evaluated their findings, developed a story arc on how to present them in business management language. First Base turned the findings into a concise, BBC-quality video. The business case presentation worked like a charm. Beside the professionalism, it is great fun to work with their team. I can strongly recommend to go for First Base!
