Penetration tests - What are they and do I need one?

Given today’s cyberthreat landscape, it is imperative organizations have the correct protocols, policies and procedures in place to keep their information safe, data secure, infrastructure robust and ultimately, make them resilient. In 2017, the 2013 Yahoo breach was recalculated to have affected close to 3 billion users accounts, and the Equifax data breach — with 145.5 million customers affected — exceeds the largest publicly disclosed hacks ever reported. These breaches along with WannaCry and Petya cyberattacks are signals of what is to come in the cyber space. With this in mind, organizations need to identify their susceptibility to a successful attack by testing their systems and networks before an attacker does.
