With cyber-attacks, data breaches and ransomware dramatically on the increase, businesses must be confident they are sufficiently protected but how can they really tell? Anti-virus and firewalls provide some protection but today’s sophisticated cyber criminals are skilled at finding routes into organisations that the business owners and employees may not have considered.
Add to this the forthcoming data protection regulation GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) then it becomes even more critical to be confident that the information security in your business is fully protected.
One very effective method of checking out the security of your systems is to run a Penetration Test. Penetration or Pen Tests use a simulated attack under controlled conditions to identify how intruders could approach your network. The Pen Test will engage across a range of vectors including network, applications, wireless and social communications so that specific risks can be identified. Certified security engineers will work with your organisation in setting up the pen Test and agree all of the variables for the test. Once completed, a detailed report will show what was accessed, where and how, so you can plan your threat protection strategy with confidence. Take a look at our short animated Pen Test video here:
