Penetration Testing: Test Your Security Integrity Before Hackers Do 

Penetration testing—or pen testing—replicates a cyberattack on your organization’s computer system. The process helps to reveal weaknesses and test your security integrity. An organization can use results of a vulnerability scan to perform the pen test, gaining insights into how a hacker might exploit those discovered weaknesses. 

Cost of Pen Testing versus Cost of a Breach 

Some organizations may feel penetration testing is too time-consuming and costly. But when you consider that the average global cost for a data breach in 2022 was $4.3 million, the testing might be worth a place in the budget.
