A penetration test simulates the actions of a cyber hacker aiming to breach your organization’s security. Penetration tests are an important part of a security team’s threat and vulnerability management capability and give organisations and their leadership teams a clear picture over how much their business is at risk. The outputs from these tests are used for several purposes; for example:
• To provide input to the development of security and risk management improvement programs.
• To validate the efficacy of security controls and capabilities.
• As part of ongoing threat and vulnerability management activities.
Penetration tests can encompass a range of activities and outcomes. Clients using penetration tests typically focus on external and internal network tests, as well as external and critical internal web-based applications. Tests against wireless networks have become more common, sometimes to meet regulatory requirements like PCI DSS, as well as physical tests, depending on the organizations’ vertical (e.g., utilities, retail). Tests that specifically address phishing and social engineering are also very common nowadays.

One of the main reasons for you to conduct a penetration test is to get an in-depth evaluation of your information security posture. Our team will not only indicate weaknesses but also provide the appropriate mitigation procedures required to either eliminate those weaknesses or reduce them to an acceptable level of risk. Our experts use tools and techniques which attempt to exploit critical systems and gain access to sensitive data before cybercriminals do it.
Modern cybercrime is a high stakes game. It has the potential to financially and reputationally ruin a business.With admin-level access to a corporate network, cybercriminals are free to do almost anything they choose. Virtually all hacking activities are carried out for profit, or as part of an espionage program.The main risks lie in data exfiltration, brand damage and disruption of the business processes.
