Why is Penetration Testing important?

Also called ethical hacking, white-hat hacking or pen testing, Penetration Testing is simply a security assessment highlighting any vulnerabilities and giving you confidence in your digital security.

Some of the reasons for considering pen testing are:

  • Risk Assessment – How much would the cost of a system failure or data loss impact your business? Would you be able to operate without the? An assessment like this will highlight risk areas and allow you to address them before they become an issue.
  • Compliance – Failing to comply with certain laws and regulations could cost your business a lage fine and/or even in some cases prison time. On the other side of it, compliance is a great tool to give you an advantage over competitors that are not as complant as you when it comes to customer data.
  • Reputation – This probably has the most expensive impact to a company that has been hacked. Cyber criminals like to publisise what they have done and just depending on the nature of your business it could result in complete business loss.
  • Competition – Losing data is disastrous for any business but could be made even worse if it ended up in the hands of your competitors. Although your competitors would not ever consider hacing your systems but if you valuable data becomes available in the public domain it is likely they would make use of it.
