Penetration Testing and Security Health Checking
Penetration tests are used to evaluate the effectiveness of an organisation’s IT security, highlighting any potential areas of weakness, and areas that need corrective action.
By understanding the techniques used by ‘hackers’, 4Secure tests identify how resilient networks, applications and hardware are to attacks from unauthorised users, and can flag up potential mistreatment by authorised users.
Most organisations have specific requirements when commissioning a penetration test, but the test often exposes other issues, such as:
- potential flaws which could result in financial or data loss.
- evidence (or otherwise!) of due diligence and compliance to industry regulators that your IT Systems have been tested. The absence of necessary documentation can lead to loss of business and opportunities.
- avoiding loss of consumer confidence and business reputation, by protecting brand integrity.
- identifying specific vulnerabilities in order to quantify their impact and take any corrective measures.
4Secure combines its own proven methodologies with recognised industry processes to carry out comprehensive tests tailored to a customer’s specific requirements.
A great deal of technical effort is applied during the tests, but the report and de-briefing prioritises any remedial action required in a clear and concise manner making it easy to focus on the necessary actions.
The increasing risk of data leakage and financial fraud are driving many organisation to request penetration tests, often covering a comprehensive review of IT security as well as IT operations. If this is the case, we will investigate how corporate information is stored, communicated and disposed of. We will also offer guidance on compliance, including ISO27001.
