Security Controls Testing
Testing cybersecurity controls (often called “penetration testing” or "pentesting") is a white-hat (ethical hacker) activity that enables a company to identify vulnerabilities its network, systems, or software.
Who should test?
Testing is an essential part of the security verification process. These services are for organizations building a mature cybersecurity practice that have already assessed and mitigated risk. The testing process validates a company’s security posture and uncover areas for improvement; it is not a first step. But, it’s an important one as your company grows.
