Purpose of Penetration Testing

A penetration testing, or pen test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations, or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as end-user adherence to security policies.

What is the purpose of an information security policy?

An information security policy aims to enact protections and limit the distribution of data to only those with authorized access. Organizations create ISPs to:

  • Establish a general approach to information security
  • Document security measures and user access control policies
  • Detect and minimize the impact of compromised information assets such as misuse of data, networks, mobile devices, computers, and applications
  • Protect the reputation of the organization
  • Comply with legal and regulatory requirements like NIST, GDPR, HIPAA, and FERPA
  • Protect their customer’s data, such as credit card numbers
  • Provide effective mechanisms to respond to complaints and queries related to real or perceived cybersecurity risks such as phishing, malware, and ransomware
  • Limit access to key information technology assets to those who have an acceptable useç
