The online components of your organisation’s network are constantly exposed to threats from hackers. To ensure your organisation is compliant with regulatory and legislative requirements, (GLBA, PCI, NCUA, FFIEC, HIPAA, etc.) you are required to conduct independent security testing. These tests identify any vulnerability that could result in unauthorised disclosure, misuse, alteration or destruction of your and your clients’ confidential information.
Best-practice requires that organisations should perform an external penetration test in addition to any other regular security assessments in order to ensure your external network is secure and protected from breaches.
These tests examine your external systems and networks and search for any weaknesses that could be exploited so you can proactively protect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of your systems and information.
