FAQs

When do we need a penetration test?
  • Prior to contracting a breach insurance
  • If you notice viruses, malware, spyware on workstations
  • After implementing significant changes in your website or network
  • If you notice unauthorized traffic on your network
  • When a security audit for HIPAA or PCI-DSS is needed
  • After installing new software or other upgrades
  • Prior to submission of application for breach insurance
  • If you store valuable data and have never had one

How much does it cost?
The cost for penetration testing varies greatly. A number of factors are used to determine pricing including size of the environment we are testing, scope of the project (external, internal, wireless, applications, etc), and the frequency of testing. A small company can expect a figure of around $20,000 while large firms often invest hundreds of thousands across their many systems.

How often should we get a Penetration Test?
Best practice is that you perform Penetration Testing at least once a year. This reveals new threats and emerging vulnerabilities that might be exploited by malicious hackers.

What are the main risks of not conducting a Penetration Test?
1) Loss of money: Data breaches and security incidents are becoming increasingly costly. According to the “Cost of a data breach 2019” report from IBM and the Ponemon Institute, each record lost costs around $242 in the U.S.
2) Negative impact on your reputation: Improving your security posture is not only about technology but about retaining the trust of your customers and protecting your company’s reputation. Data breaches can result in some of the most impactful downturns in sentiment for your organization.
3) Discontinuity in your operations: Cybersecurity events — if properly mitigated — may not be damaging enough to disrupt the continuity of your business. You should establish a robust plan and controls to ensure business continuity in the event of an active security event.

What are the deliverables from a Penetration Test engagement?
We provide customized finding reports including an executive summary without any technical jargon, detailed descriptions of each vulnerability in both business and technical terms, and detailed recommendations on how to fix things.

If we're already performing vulnerability scanning, why should we perform a Penetration Test?
Yes, a vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying threats and vulnerabilities on a target by using automated vulnerability scanners.  A pentest is often initiated by various scenarios which can include (but are not limited to) application launches, major network/application changes or updates, compliance regulations or a breach/leak from a targeted attack.
Since vulnerability scans leverage preconfigured pattern recognition, there are many aspects of a system that cannot be tested completely, or at all. Penetration Testing provides coverage for serious security faults that scanners are incapable of testing, and will definitely improve the security posture of an organization.
