penetration testing process Uncover architectural and conceptual issues through emulated, real-world attacks.

The best way to know if your organization is susceptible to a security breach is to test your defenses. By evaluating the strength of your company’s infrastructure and revealing vulnerabilities, you can effectively manage those weaknesses.

Cybering evaluates various points of exposure in your programs, systems, and networks, attempting to gain deeper levels of access and higher levels of security clearance. Once these access points are identified, we’ll work with you to build a plan that helps your company be better prepared to face threats.

  • Penetration Testing process - External

     Consists of enumerating and verifying vulnerabilities that could be exploited by external attackers to gain unauthorized access to your systems. Cybering’s team plays the role of an external attacker, attempting to exploit vulnerable systems to obtain confidential information or compromise network perimeter defenses.

  • Penetration Testing - Internal

    Focuses on determining the potential business impact of a security breach and validating the level of effort required for an attacker to overcome your security infrastructure. After access is gained, Cybering identifies configuration issues and vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Using that information, Cybering attempts to complete several objectives that are designed to replicate common attacker behaviors.

  • Penetration Testing - PCI

    With specific goals set by the PCI Security Standards Council, this test involves both external and internal penetration test methodologies. The two main objectives of his test are; 1) To determine whether and how a malicious user can gain access to assets that affect the fundamental security of the systems, files, logs and cardholder data; 2) To confirm that the applicable controls required by PCI DSS are in place.

  • Penetration Testing - Web Application

    Focuses on evaluating the security of a web application by using aspects of the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES) and the OWASP standard testing checklist, and involves an active analysis of the application for any weaknesses, technical flaws or other vulnerabilities. You’ll receive an assessment of the potential impact, steps to reproduce the issue if applicable, and Cybering’s recommendations for remediation.

  • Penetration Testing - Physical

    Measures the effectiveness of security training, internal procedures, and technical controls by attempting physical access to your organization. Cybering staff will pose as a legitimate person or company (fire inspector, exterminator, power company technician, etc.) and then attempt to gain access to restricted areas, obtain a physical network connection, or access unattended workstations or information stores.
