Penetration Testing

by | Nov 24, 2023 | News, Security

Penetration testing is important for businesses because it helps them identify and fix security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers.

It can be a significant job as it needs a team of security professionals to simulate a real-world cyberattack. This can include stealing confidential data or disrupting normal business operations.  The testing uncovers vulnerabilities that can then be closed.  It isn’t exhaustive but it is hugely useful.

Sometimes penetration testing is a requirement of a cyber-insurance provider before they will commit to a policy.

These are highly skilled tasks.  Based on demand,the lead times can vary,and are often 1-2 months.

We recommend getting them done sooner than waiting till you get a 60 days notice from your insurer.  

To arrange a penetration test, we will need to quote.  That can take a week in itself, subject to the preparatory work (for example, an initial surface scan)
