Penetration testing (pen test) is a set of procedures designed to bypass the security controls of an IT infrastructure in order to test its resistance to attack. Essentially it is a form of ethical hacking to identify and assess vulnerabilities or weaknesses in your computer systems before they are found by the wrong people. Pen test will validate the efficacy of security controls, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies
Regular pen testing will provide management with confidence that the organisation’s IT systems are secure from attack and provide reassurance to customers (who are more aware than ever before of the potential threat of online information theft) that their data is adequately protected.
A pen test is a key requirement in determining whether security policies are effective, and is also essential for compliance to financial regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, compliance to PCI DSS for online payments, and for certification to standards such as ISO/IEC 27001.
