What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing is a simulated cyberattack on an organisation’s computer systems.

The goal is to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in a network infrastructure, so they can be addressed before an attacker discovers them.

You can think of penetration testing (or pen test) as a security stress test – we intentionally try to break in to see where defences are weak. The best way to do this is to think and act like an attacker, so that’s what we do.

The process includes a Reconnaissance audit, followed by an attack simulation. Unlike Cyber Essentials, there is no accreditation process to pen testing.

Think like an attacker to get the highest quality analysis.
