PSN Compliance

Expert PSN Services delivered by Specialist Qualified Advisors

The Public Services Network (PSN) creates a single, more secure telecommunications infrastructure and creates opportunities for greater information sharing between public sector organisations.

Our consultants keep their fingers on the pulse of the information assurance standards that exist in the UK.  They contribute regularly to speaking engagements when information assurance is on the agenda. Knowledge is gathered from multiple sources such as The Cabinet Office, CESG, NHS, DoH, Government Digital Services (GDS) and PSN. We continue to gather intelligence on other new or emerging threats and vulnerabilities from reliable sources, such as CERT and NIST.

Our knowledge and experience is recognised and retained as Information Assurance advisors to the London Public service Network. In addition to this, they are architects of the technical and governance regime for the associated gateways, from London PSN to the HSCN Network and the former GCSx network (approved July 2008). 

Ensuring compliance

Compliance with PSN Information Assurance Conditions requires implementation of a PSN-compliant network design. We have helped and continue to help a large number of local authorities to achieve this.

We work directly with local authorities/organisations to develop a suitable compliance plan that incorporates the risk assessment/risk mitigation aspects of the current PSN compliance regime.

Hytec has completed many PSN gap analysis projects for many organisations up and down the country. The output of the gap analysis against the major control sections of the PSN CoCo (i.e. areas of non-compliance) feeds into corrective action planning.

During the design phase / corrective actions plan, our consultants liaise closely with PSNA and CESG to establish clear and workable guidance towards compliance. We are highly familiar with the contents of all the standards applicable to public and private institutions and ensures that advice and guidance given as part of a PSN project is in-line with other requirements.
