Penetration Testing

What is a Penetration Test/ IT Health Check?

Penetration Testing evaluates the security of a system or network and reports on any vulnerabilities that could lead to a business impact.

It is the most effective way of demonstrating how attackers identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities as well as how these vulnerabilities could be leveraged to gain further access.

An IT Health Check is an enhanced Penetration Test required by government departments, other public bodies and certain companies connected to government systems.

It involves much of the same processes and outcomes as a Penetration Test, but is recognised and mandated by the UK Government.

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into force on 25th May 2018 requires personal data to be processed in a manner that ensures its security. This includes protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage.

You must evidence steps have been made to secure and test your data network to be GDPR compliant. A data breach is a breach of GDPR without this. Make sure you are aware of your network vulnerabilities and fix them before it’s too late with PGI Penetration Testing.


Why Penetration Testing should be top of your priority list

Most cyber criminals use existing flaws to access systems. It is essential you know how many of these vulnerabilities you have, where they are and how to mitigate them.

Penetration Testing is a standard security procedure and is increasingly becoming required in commercial contracts

Having an IT Health Check shows a level of compliance the government expects from thier suppliers. If you work with the government an IT Health Check is advised.

Penetration tests can vastly reduce your risk profile and contribute greatly to the protection of your income, resources, clients and reputation.

Any organisation with a large web presence or a large remote access by staff, clients or public should invest in a penetration test.

With the introduction of GDPR, regular penetration tests are a good way of evidencing security of personal data processed on IT networks.
