Penetration Testing

A penetration Test is a form of ethical Cyber Security, like a Vulnerability scan. The test is used to identify & safely exploit any weaknesses found whilst scanning the companies network. Once the weaknesses are identified, our Cyber security experts will provide businesses with a report, detailing the necessary remediation needed to secure and protect their network.

The different types of Penetration testing:

Physical Security – An attempt to break into the premises, using access cards or using physical means.

Social engineering – Using platforms to try manipulate users, such as texting, (spear) phishing emails, calling to pretend to be someone else etc.

Payload distribution – Dropping USB’s around a premises and seeing if they are plugged in, a simulation to hack into the network.

Benefits of a Penetration Test:

It doesn’t just identify weaknesses, it looks for security vulnerabilities (i.e. a staff member plugging in a USB, or clicking a phishing link)

Penetration tests confirm the threat posed by a particular security vulnerabilities or faulty process, allowing our security experts to arrange appropriate remediation.

Penetration testing can help an organisation avoid data incidents that may affect their reputation.
