Information System and Data Security Audits
“Hacking” is no longer in the domain of high value, high stakes business. It is a serious everyday threat for organisations of every type and size that rely on IT to facilitate their business. Reliable security depends on understanding the exposure, weaknesses and the threats that could lead to a breach in the defences that could be exploited to access or damage information systems and data.
We at UHY understand this and offer our clients comprehensive penetration testing services as well as training for not technical staff who may be targets of attackers trying to breach enterprise security.
What is Penetration Testing?
“Penetration Testing” or “Ethical Hacking” is the process of identifying vulnerabilities in your technology environment and assessing the exposures they create. This is performed in the same way as a malicious attacker would, with the same techniques and tools, however, without the malicious intent. This allows the enterprise to understand the level of exposure that it has to the various forms of attack and is the only real test that uncovers hidden vulnerabilities. It is a convincing tool in planning remediation activity and security spend effectively.
Typical Test Process
Testing involves five key stages, with the option to “penetrate” during an assessment if there is sufficient need, risk appetite and potential reward.
- Scan: Passive and active scanning techniques are used to identify possible targets.
- Analyse: Analysis and cross-referencing of vulnerabilities found on the targets.
- Follow up: There is no substitute for the experience of a seasoned tester; any findings from the prior stages are manually verified to eliminate false alarms.
- Penetrate: During the manual follow up of findings, our test teams may discover vulnerabilities that if exploited, could bring further levels of access. If this is the case, a full risk and business impact analysis is performed and presented to you, so that you can decide if the potential value outweighs the likely risk.
- Report: The key to value is a report the business can understand, with practical recommendations of deeply technical issues, analysis of potential root causes and a clear explanation of the risks.
Why do I need this?
Although the organisation may have invested in significant security safeguards, a penetration test carried out by an independent third party can provide assurance that the safeguards in place are effective and thus protecting the organisation’s reputation with customers, business partners and regulators – ultimately acting as a business enabler.
We conduct training programs for end users as well as IT staff to ensure that they have a comprehensive understanding of the threat landscape. Our consultants take IT staff through an intense threat assessment and management program ensuring that they are able to identify and stop potential risks that may be a threat to your business.
