FCO Services operates a range of security accredited information services on behalf of our clients. External penetration tests are conducted as a mandatory part of the security accreditation process. The external penetration tests are commissioned at solution deployment and then at least annually thereafter to maintain the security accreditation. The last external penetration test commissioned was completed in April 2015.
