Forensic Control


Understand your vulnerabilities before it's too late

Penetration, or ‘pen’ testing is the process of testing a computer system, network, or application to discover vulnerabilities that could be exploited by cyber security attacks. Once identified, the tester will provide remediation details to fix the potential exploit. We recommend that our clients carry out regular penetration testing, especially after changes to systems, as new vulnerabilities and methods to exploit these vulnerabilities regularly emerge.

Pen testing involves simulating an attack on your systems using various techniques, tools and methodologies. Our expert pen testers will attempt to gain access to your systems, identify security weaknesses, and then try to exploit them. This can involve using ‘social engineering’ tactics to trick people into revealing sensitive information, or using automated tools to scan for vulnerabilities.

The goal of penetration testing is not to cause harm or damage to the system, but rather to help improve its security by identifying weaknesses that could be exploited by real attackers. By conducting regular pen tests, you can proactively identify and address security vulnerabilities before they are exploited by malicious actors.

The benefits of penetration testing

Penetration testing helps identify security vulnerabilities in your systems, networks, and applications, allowing you to address them before they are exploited by attackers. This helps to improve the overall security of your systems, protecting your organisation from potential data breaches and cyber attacks.

Many industry regulations and compliance standards require regular penetration testing to ensure the security of sensitive data. Conducting regular pen tests can help you meet these requirements and avoid fines and legal penalties for non-compliance.

Penetration testing is a cost-effective way to identify and address security vulnerabilities. By proactively identifying and addressing these, you can avoid much higher costs associated with data breaches, including legal fees, lost revenues, and reputational damage.

Penetration testing helps you understand the risks associated with your systems, networks, and applications. By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, you can reduce the risk of cyber attacks and minimise potential damage.

Conducting regular penetration testing can give you peace of mind, knowing that your systems are secure and you are taking proactive steps to protect your organisation from potential cyber threats.
