About Penetration Testing

What is penetration testing?

No business is immune to cyber-attacks. In fact, every year, nearly half of all UK businesses suffer some sort of breach. But there are measures that your organisation can take to minimise risk, helping you to maintain your income, your valuable internal resources, and your reputation with your clients.

Identify your cyber vulnerabilities

Penetration testing is a method of identifying possible ‘penetration points’; any vulnerabilities or gaps in IT security that could be exploited, leaving your business at greater risk.

Experts recommend how to fix the vulnerabilities

This testing format is simulated hacking, undertaken by security experts. Once gaps have been identified in your systems and networks, they provide expert advice for strengthening your defences.

Why have a penetration test?

It's not just about keeping your clients happy; it’s about being proactive and doing everything you can to keep your business safe. whilst cyber security is important to UK businesses, we’ve found that only 27% have a formal policy in place.

Much like carrying out an annual MOT on your car, we recommend regular penetration testing for all businesses to ensure ongoing mitigation of risk; however, it is even more important if:

You are undergoing digital transformation and introducing new technologies to the workplace

You are transferring data off site, such as utilising cloud storage or outsourcing IT tasks

You have experienced a breach in the past, or are unsure of your system/ network security
