What is Penetration Testing
Our penetration testing service assesses your systems for potential security issues, vulnerabilities or any insecure system configurations. Pen testing can also be used to assess weaknesses in security processes or security countermeasures such as firewalls and WAF’s. Pen testing can involve the attempted breaching of any number of application systems, (e.g., application protocol interfaces (APIs), frontend/backend servers) to uncover vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that are susceptible to code injection attacks.
The introduction of GDPR in 2018 has also meant strict penalties for those who suffer a breach, and fail to report it to the authorities.
However we suggest that you should forget the ‘cost-per-record’ for a breach where data is stolen, or even the potential fines from regulatory bodies; just a post-breach investigation, incident mitigation and reputational damage can be enough to make some businesses struggle to survive.
