GOOD SECURITY PRACTICE INVOLVES
REGULAR TESTING AND SCANNING OF IT SYSTEMS
Moremicro recognises that businesses need to protect their most vital assets, data, networks, and systems from unauthorised access. By performing regular penetration tests and IT assessments, businesses can reduce risks, and safeguard themselves against common cyber-attacks.
PEN TESTING / ETHICAL HACKING
WHAT IS PENETRATION TESTING?
A penetration test (also known as pen testing or ethical hacking) is a process where a cyber security professional performs several tests on a computer system or network for the sole purpose of identifying vulnerabilities, weaknesses and possible threats. For best results, it is best performed by someone who has no knowledge of your infrastructure.
Depending on the level of intrusion and scope of the project, a pen tester uses an exhaustive checklist to identify entry points, risks and vulnerabilities within an organisation. In addition to identifying findings and uncovering flaws, pen testing can also provide clients with measures where they can reduce risks by upgrading their security
IDENTIFY RISK, PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS
BENEFITS OF A PEN TEST:
- Identify risks from misconfigurations, network vulnerabilities and user threats.
- Protect your business from security breaches and threats.
- Uncover any poor internal and external systems.
- Assess whether your business is compliant under GDPR requirements (Article 35).
- Maintain your reputation.
- Evaluate the efficiency of your current security measures.
THE 5 STAGE PLAN
PEN TESTING INVOLVES
VARIOUS STAGES AND CAREFUL PLANNING
Stages of pen testing design:
Explore scope and goals of project.
Gather information on business and map out attacks and access.
Test scan the network/ infrastructure for risks to determine the best entry point for attack.
Penetrate/ Compromise the system and network and obtain as much information as possible.
Create a detailed report outlining step by step how the pen test was performed, what data was retrieved, what weaknesses were found and recommendations for improvement and remediation.
Pen testing can reveal how a hacker can attack and exploit a vulnerable network and device.
