Penetration Testing

PenTesting Vs. Assessment

There are two very different ways to test your systems for vulnerabilities.

Penetration testing and vulnerability scanning are often confused for the same service. The problem is business owners purchase one when they need the other. A vulnerability scan is an automated, high-level test that looks for and reports potential vulnerabilities.

A Penetration test is a detailed hands-on examination performed after the vulnerability scan. The engineer will use the scanned findings of vulnerabilities to create scripts or find scripts online that can be used to inject malicious codes into the vulnerabilities to gain access to the system.

Cyber Security Consulting Ops will always offer our customers’ vulnerability scanning instead of a Penetration Test because it doubles the work and may cause outages. If a customer wants us to do PenTesting. They should understand there is a higher risk for an outage, so they must accept the risk of possible outage because of code/script injections into their systems.

I.T. Security Assessment (penetration testing) can help protect applications by exposing weaknesses that provide an alternative route to sensitive data. Cyber Security Consulting Ops will help protect your digital enterprise against cyber-attacks and internal malicious behavior with end-to-end monitoring, advising, and defensive services.

The more you know about your vulnerabilities and security controls, the more you can strengthen your organization with effective procedures for governance, risk, and compliance.
