Security & Penetration Testing

A best practice approach to security includes regular assessment of the risk of unauthorised penetration of your corporate perimeter. This should as a minimum encompass an independently conducted penetration test on an annual basis and after significant change. However, with the constant threat of the impact of data loss, ID theft, and fraud; including direct and indirect consequences such as financial penalties and even the threat of prison terms, this is generally considered insufficient.

To understand why this is so, consider that every year in the order of 8,000 vulnerabilities are discovered in commercial software. While most of these large numbers of vulnerabilities will probably not affect your organisation’s infrastructure, even if only one percent impact your environment, your organisation could be exposed to a significant risk (statistically twenty per quarter, or almost seven per month on average). Can you afford to wait up to a year to check for this eventuality?
