What is pen testing in cyber security?

Our cyber security specialists are IT experts who’ll use innovative techniques to put your security posture to the test. A pen test mimics the latest strategies and actions of cyber criminals to evaluate the level of vulnerability of your business’s computer systems, network, web applications or data servers. It can also be used to test adherence to compliance regulations.

What are the features of security testing?

Our security experts will work to see if there are any weaknesses in your operating systems which could potentially be exploited, provide you with an understanding of the type of information which could be accessed and how much damage could be done by a cyber attacker.

Frequently asked questions

The number of cyber-attacks is rising at a dramatic rate, putting any company which relies on technology at risk. Pen testing identifies and mitigates cybersecurity risks before they are exploited, allowing you to implement informed security upgrades to minimise the possibility of successful attacks.

The six steps of penetration testing include preparation, development of an attack plan, the implementation of a cyber team, determination of the type of attack, implementation of the test and finally the results and report.

The type of hacking techniques used will depend on the infrastructure and operations of your business, your IT systems and your company standards. It is a complicated approach but Focus Group harness the combined power of the latest automated software programs, human testing techniques and powerful to develop the right approach for you.
