Penetration Testing Explained
We’ve all heard of pen testing, but when it should be performed is a common topic of debate. Threat and vulnerability specialist Dominic Clark explains that every business is different, but it’s best practice to perform penetration tests regularly.
– It is recommended to perform regular penetration tests; typically one or two times per year.
– Some pen test considerations include compliance, installation of new infrastructure, changes in policy, and tolerance to cyber risk.
– You may want to invest in a vulnerability assessment prior to a penetration test. Our goal is to discuss areas of improvement in-depth, rather than provide a report of 500 critical vulnerabilities.
