Penetration testing should be done for a number of reasons, including:
- To uncover major vulnerabilities and prioritise your vulnerabilities into low, medium and high risks, then give you an opportunity to fix these vulnerabilities.
- To help you enforce your security strategy and identify any further security controls you need to implement if poor internal security processes are revealed.
- To show your security team in real-time how attack vectors impact the organisation.
- To give your organisation and team more confidence, with a new perspective on your network, application and data
- To help inform governance and compliance improvements, possibly as your organisation aligns with industry security standards
- To train your security team on how to better detect and respond to threats, while introducing newer security technologies
- To test your team’s ability to conduct remediation and incident reporting.
- To allow your team to optimise their incident response process
- To protect your most critical data
- To provide your management and leadership team with insightful reports
To strengthen customer trust and loyalty by demonstrating your commitment to security
