Beagle Security (Beagle Cyber Innovations Pvt. Ltd.) is now a CERT-In empaneled Information Security Audit Provider. This certification allows the company to provide security audit and advisory services to the Indian government, semi-government, and public sector organizations through its cyber security services wing – Beagle Next. Beagle Security is one of the youngest companies to be CERT-In empaneled.

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) is part of the Government of India’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. It is a nodal agency in charge of dealing with cyber security concerns such as hacking and phishing.

It increases the Indian Internet domain’s security defenses. CERT-In has used a demanding approach to examine participants in its effort to develop a competent panel of Security Auditing organizations. This is to ensure that the participating businesses have the technical knowledge and ability to conduct an information security audit.

Empanelment for CERT-In is a difficult process that includes several steps such as providing information, methodology, case studies, skills, and profiles.

Participants must also pass a two-stage qualifying test, both offline and online, to assess applications in both the offline and web environments - identifying, exploiting, and reporting vulnerabilities are also part of the selection process.

To be deemed effective, you must identify at least 90% of the vulnerabilities on the web server. A team of security specialists will analyze the report before awarding the empanelment.

Who needs the CERT-In Certification?

CERT-In certification is one of the most effective methods of attesting the security of Indian organizations. The following organizations stand to benefit the most from a CERT-In certification:

  • Companies or those who use the software as mandated by:

    RBI – Cybersecurity Framework for Banks

    RBI – Cybersecurity Framework for Urban Cooperative Banks

    RBI Guidelines for Cybersecurity in the NBFC sector

  • Online payments providers – Companies and software that come under RBI Guidelines for Payment Aggregators and Payment Gateways

  • Companies who conduct business related to software, hardware, or services with the Government of India

  • Companies and related software that fall under the rulebook of SEBI Cybersecurity and Cyber Resilience Framework

  • Companies that host applications or portals online using the National Informatics Center (NIC)

  • Companies or those using software that should follow the mandate of the UIDAI – AUA KUA Compliance

  • If you’re selling, providing licenses, or just deploying relevant software and services for organizations that need ISNP Security Audit (under the IRDA mandate).
