Penetration Tests, an Introduction
When your business is online, the front door of your business is directly in front of every potential customer. Unfortunately, it’s just as easy for attackers, fraudsters, and anyone who wants to prey on you and your customers to be at your doorstep too. With carefully architected locks and controls, you can make sure that your door only opens for your customers.
Penetration tests, or pen tests, are a critical part of making sure your controls remain as strong as you think they are. Specifically, it is important that your pen tests are conducted by a skilled external firm. And this is true even if your organization has a competent internal security team – even in our case, with a competent and specialized internal security team to support our data security business.
