Whether your organisation is small or large, public or private, you are likely to have information that if compromised could cause harm to your staff, customers or your reputation. Weaknesses in internet facing networks and applications can occur due to poorly patched, configured or unsupported systems. Where these vulnerabilities occur, they may be exploited by malicious attackers to compromise your data. Therefore, it is essential to identify these weaknesses and understand how they can be remediated to protect you from future damaging attacks.
Regular penetration testing, particularly after the introduction of new functionality or infrastructure is an essential facet of security best practice. Using penetration testing, you can improve the security of your systems and minimise the chance of future cyber attacks.
