Network Security Penetration Testing
A Network Security Penetration Test evaluates the effectiveness of your network security by simulating an attack. The objective is to gain unauthorised access to the targeted network and devices deployed within. Effective penetration testing shows if and how this can be achieved given the current network device configuration and security controls deployed.
Security penetration testing is an art. The art of thinking like an attacker – identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities that would allow access. The key to penetration testing is to clearly identify the testing objective before starting. For instance, if you are testing to ensure that unauthorised access to your network cannot be achieved, this objective should be clearly stated in the scope and addressed in the report of findings.
Specific information and communication technology (ICT) requires specific testing objectives methodologies and tools. Risk Crew provides security penetration testing for:
- Local area network (LAN)
- Wide area network (WAN)
- Payment Card Industry (PCI) payment card
- Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA)
- Critical National Infrastructure (CNI)
- Internet of Things (IoT)
Risk Crew’s testing is scoped to meet your specific business or compliance requirements and we issue “Testing Certificates” to enable your business to produce evidence of compliance if required.
