Penetration Testing

What is a Penetration Test?

A penetration test (or “pentest” ) is an authorized attack against your IT systems to identify and exploit their security weaknesses, in order to evaluate the real-world risks they pose to your business.

The goal of a pentest is to proactively uncover your weakest links and identify the extent of damage a real malicious attacker could cause your business.

Who are your adversaries? Who could attack your systems to cause damage?

  • Malicious outsiders (i.e. your competitors, hacktivists, nation states, or organized cyber criminals)
  • Insiders (i.e. your own employees / ex-employees)
  • Your customers , knowingly or unknowingly (through their compromised IT systems)
  • Your vendors or business partners, knowingly or unknowingly (through their compromised IT systems)
