Proactive Cybersecurity Practices
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.
Benefits of Penetration Testing
- Identify and triage risk factors
- Decrease errors
- Test cyber defense capabilities
- Strengthen business continuity
- Objective third-party review
- Fortify trust and reputation
When Should You Perform a Pen Test?
A thorough penetration test should be conducted annually or when you:
- Add a new network
- Install new software
- Relocate your office
- Set up a new end-user program
- Discover new threats
