Operating a safe and secure service is a priority for any public sector organisation. We take security and assurance seriously.

Some of the sites we host use WordPress and we have lots of experience with making our sites more secure. We routinely perform audits, code reviews and penetration testing so we can identify vulnerabilities and mitigate against the risks that our clients face.

Giving back to the WordPress community

We share the results of the assurance work we undertake. We publish advisories about security vulnerabilities we identify with suggested steps you can take to mitigate them.

Plugin code reviews

Before we install WordPress plugins, we carry out a targeted code review to assess the plugin code’s quality and the potential it has to introduce security problems. We can carry these code reviews out for others, on request.

We publish all outcomes of plugin reviews and advisories on our advisories site.
