Penetration testing is a critical component of your information security program. Whether you are conducting internal or external penetration testing, identifying critical exploits and remediating them in a timely fashion could mean the difference between becoming a victim of a data breach or fending off an attack.

The classification of these tests includes black box, gray box, and white box testing. Each category, or "box" brings with it different testing methodologies ideal for different situations.

Our Penetration Testing Methodology
Our penetration testing methodology consists of the following steps:
Analyze the system(s) in scope for testing and obtain as much information as possible before conducting the test.
Conduct vulnerability scanning to identify any potential vulnerabilities and/or exploits present on the target(s). The vulnerabilities identified in the vulnerability scan will be further researched to determine whether the exploit code exists. If exploit code is available, the code will be used to exploit the vulnerability and penetrate the host in the next step.
Conduct penetration testing, using various methodologies, to determine the exploitability of the target(s). All testing will abide by the Rules of Engagement document that is created by our team in collaboration with your organization and will outline testing expectations, procedures, and methodologies that will be used to perform the penetration test.
Provide you with multi-level reporting to satisfy all of the key stakeholders in your organization. For your technical team, we will provide a detailed technical report outlining the methodology used, the vulnerabilities identified, if penetration was successful, and specific remediation strategies to mitigate your risk and patch the vulnerability. For your executive team, we will provide a high-level overview of the overall process that was used, any significant risks that were uncovered and the overall risk level of the organization.
