System assurance company VEGA Group has won two contracts from the UK's Identity and Passport Service (IaPS), and the Police Information Technology Organisation (PITO).
The IaPS contract is for three years and covers risk analysis and management, accreditation of document sets, and IT health checks – including technical assurance and system penetration testing.
The contract covers the security requirements across all nine of IaPS’ major sites.
The IT security framework contract with PITO also runs for three years and involves VEGA providing security health check services for police forces and other crime-related organisations.
Each police force in England and Wales is required to have at least one annual health check of its IT and other related security support services.
