In an earlier article, we talked about what a penetration test is and what it is not. After answering those questions, the next logical question that companies might ask is “Does my organization need a penetration test?” The answer is YES.
Many organizations have an in-house IT or security team responsible for identifying potential vulnerabilities and protecting the business against cyber threats. After building out such a program, it might seem like undergoing a penetration test is an unnecessary exercise.
However, in-house security teams have their limitations and blind spots. A failure to acknowledge these can leave an organization vulnerable to attack. Undergoing a penetration test by a reputable service provider is an essential addition to any company’s existing, internal cybersecurity efforts.
A pen test can help companies with various aspects of their cybersecurity including:
Most companies should undergo penetration testing on a regular basis – at least annually. This enables an organization to evaluate the state of its cybersecurity posture as its IT infrastructure and the cyber threat landscape change. Penetration tests provide a snapshot of an organization’s existing cybersecurity strength; only by performing them regularly does a company get a wider picture of how its defenses stack up against cyber threats.
A penetration test is only as good as the penetration testing service provider. When selecting a cybersecurity company to perform a penetration test against your organization, look for one that the top organizations trust with their security.
