Cyber Security & Operational Resilience 

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing is a method for gaining assurance in the security of an IT system or the physical part of your operation by attempting to breach some or all of that systems security.

There are a number of different types of penetration tests, including:

  • Continuous Testing in Agile Delivery.
  • Cloud Services Testing.
  • Infrastructure Penetration Testing.
  • Application Penetration Testing.
  • Wi-Fi Penetration Testing.
  • Mobile Application Testing.

Why Is It Important?

As technology and information systems become even more critical for businesses, cyber security testing is an important method used to identify potential weaknesses in your systems before cyber-criminals do.

Importantly it also helps to identify underlying weaknesses in your cyber security control framework. Often overlooked by organisations but penetration testing helps to identify activities which you perform each day that are not operating effectively and as a result undermining the security of your systems.
