Home - First Base is now Falanx Cyber
First Base have provided cyber security testing, consultancy and training services since 1989.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
