Security Testing

In an increasingly connected world, organisations are finding their systems and networks potentially exposed to the Internet. A mis-configured or un-patched server can be easily identified by automated ‘bots’ that scan the Internet for know weaknesses.

Once a weakness has been identified, attackers can exploit them for a variety of reasons. These can range from utilising your resources to attack others, store illegal material, deface websites or hold your data to ransom. More targeted attacks known as ‘advanced persistent threats’ or APT are designed to silently sit on your systems and exfiltrate company secrets or financial data. No matter how big or small your organisation is, attackers will find some value in gaining access to your systems.

It is essential that organisations proactively monitor their systems to identify weaknesses before the attackers do. We offer a range of bespoke security assessments that will help you understand potential vulnerabilities and how they can be resolved.

Penetration Testing

Whilst vulnerability assessments are largely based on identifying known vulnerabilities and mis-configured services, full penetration tests involve a deeper analysis of your services. Designed to test critical systems, this process involves our team assuming the role of an attacker and attempting to gain access to your systems with the use of contemporary tools and information gathering.  

Vulnerability Assessments

Whether your systems are hosting public facing services like websites or portals, company services like email and CRMs or are internal intranets, our assessments will help you clearly identify the assets and any potential weaknesses. A programme of regular scans throughout the year are valuable in ensuring your systems remain protected and compliant.

PCI / DSS Testing

If your organisation handles payment card data at any point, you must comply with the Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards. This covers a range of requirements based on your annual transactions. We can provide PCI ASV scanning services, WiFi security testing and full application code reviews.

Physical Security Testing

Digital security can often be bypassed if an attacker can get physical access. We can conduct a physical security assessment of your buildings and attempt to gain access. Our tests will test both physical controls and staff awareness.
