It’s been a seriously exciting time for us lately with an expanding team of cyber security experts and our recent announcement of our strategic alliance with the leading audit, tax, and consulting firm, RSM.

And now, we are delighted and proud to announce our official status as a CHECK accredited provider. Not bad for a company that was founded only four years ago.


CHECK is an NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) backed scheme that approves organisations to conduct IT Health Checks and penetration tests within the public sector and Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) systems and networks. It is also a specific methodology that organisations should be adhering to when conducting penetration tests.

Companies who hold the CHECK status will only conduct services using staff who hold NCSC approved qualifications. Staff will also have obtained suitable knowledge and experience in order to produce reports and recommendations to a recognised standard.


CHECK was designed to create better assurance for those companies working and handling classified and sensitive data within the public sector, government departments and those that are deemed part of the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure (CNI).

These types of companies will benefit knowing that they are using cyber security service providers who have proven to be trusted, ethical testers and are using staff that hold specific qualification requirements.


Achieving this status didn’t happen overnight. We were assessed under a meticulous vetting process in order to prove our quality and experience. With our new listing as a CHECK accredited organisation, it means we are now in a position to open up our services even wider and offer greater assurance to specific types of clients.

And this, combined with our defence grade services and practical approach to cyber security means our clients will be receiving the very highest standards of delivery and services to better help our customers uncover their known and unknown cyber risks.

Our Founder, Jason Kalwa, who himself is an Infrastructure CHECK Team Leader, is delighted by the new CHECK status:

“It means a great deal to Salus and the growth trajectory we are currently experiencing. The additional projects we will be able to bid for and win as a result of this will be strategically massive for us. With our heritage and cyber experience in serving   Defence and Government, it puts Salus Cyber in front of many more prospective clients that may benefit from our knowledge and skills.”

If you would like further information about our CHECK services or would like to arrange a scoping meeting, please contact us either by email at: or via phone on: +44 (0) 1242 374087

The support and networking opportunities that the Chamber offered to me as director of a new business really appealed. The board and members I spoke to seemed really interested in my business.
