Increase Competences through Penetration Testing

Innovation within the hacker and cybercrime communities are developing new tactics, new strategies and new technologies faster than most organizations invest and implement new security technology. In other words, if your IT system was secure yesterday, it does not necessarily mean that it still is today. Penetration testing is the solution to many questions, but…

How does your organization react when it happens for real?

Agility, revenue, EBIT, brand…. etc. are all things that organizations need to pay attention to and this is where a proactive testing program will add value to the business. Testing your company's IT system for potential gaps, vulnerabilities, misconfigurations and human errors is a minimum requirement and should be scheduled and measured on a regular basis. However, we have seen the need for testing the ability to identify, detect and remediate as well and this is where we see penetration test as an addition to the security testing that identifies how your organization reacts when an attack is happening for real.  

We believe that penetration testing is one of the tools that will create a  solid foundation for preparing and testing the way we handle an attack, and very important how we use this new knowledge to optimize our preparation for tomorrow and remediate risk at the same time. Our methodology relies on standards to ensure common alignment with other test and peers in your sector. On top of this, we keep a tight logbook that among other things time stamps all actions during the test. Comparing the time stamp to your own defense strategy and resources will allow you to identify, quantify and qualify the ability to detect and respond.    

To take advantage of all the new ways of conducting business and all the new technologies for optimizing the topline or a measurable impact on the bottom-line most organizations are going through a transformation these days. Running a mature and agile business today in all sectors and across business units requires a trust in the foundation for a digital business case. In short, businesses are as dependent on IT as they are on electricity and skilled employees.
