ProCheckUp is an approved provider of CREST STAR services.

STAR (Simulated Target Attack and Response) is a new, intelligence-led, vulnerability testing framework devised to replicate the behaviours of a real-world threat against individual clients. The testing framework has been designed to provide a bespoke assessment service, tailoring the assessment to replicate the specific threats faced by an organisation.

STAR has been created for non-financial organisations, using the same methodology as CBEST assessments, while managing the risks of a simulated attack exercise. STAR can be used by financial organisations to prepare for a CBEST assessment. STAR providers have to go through additional levels of assurance, and work with threat intelligence providers to provide intelligence led security assessments.

ProCheckUp has formed a partnership with Digital Shadows; a threat intelligence provider. For each STAR engagement, Digital Shadows will provide ProCheckUp with a customised threat intelligence report identifying the key threats facing your organisation. The threat intelligence report is used by ProCheckUp to develop a tailored testing strategy to focus the security assessment and replicate the threats facing your business.

ProCheckUp STAR testing delivers a customised testing experience simulating the threat posed by current threat actors and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) to replicate the most realistic attack scenarios and deliver a comprehensive evaluation of your current threat exposure.
