Rolling Out the Steps Involved in Penetration Testing

Also known as ethical hacking in the cybersecurity realm, penetration testing involves the authorized breach of IT systems. This process is conducted for organizations who seek to attain an in-depth understanding vulnerabilities their IT infrastructure possesses and weaknesses that may arise in the future. We perform penetration testing on web and mobile applications, networks, cloud, and wireless devices. The steps involve:

Phase 1: Planning

Our ethical hackers work with the organization’s in-house teams to understand the scope of pen tests, set targets, and understand goals to curate a tailored PenTest methodology.

Phase 2: Information Gathering

As the organization’s scope of assessment is defined, our professionals collect relevant data on the target network and system. This includes domain names, IP addresses, network architecture, open ports, live hosts, internet surfing, and other details.

Phase 3: System Scanning

Ethical hackers use static and dynamic assessment in this phase to analyze how an organization’s system responds or reacts to intrusion attempts.

Phase 4: Simulating Attacks

After gaining access to the targeted system and scanning codes behind it, the tester deploys different breach attempts that simulate real-world attacks to identify which vulnerability is easily exploitable and help them gain access.

Phase 5: Post-Attack Actions

If the attacker successfully breaches the organization's system, they simulate the exfiltration of sensitive information. This practice helps in assessing the impact of intrusion on data integrity and confidentiality.

Phase 6: Documentation and Reporting

This is the concluding phase of our penetration testing service, where our testers document all findings with minor to major details, extent of compromise, identified weaknesses, confidentiality level, and the duration of undetected intrusion.

Phase 7: Remediation Support

We assist organizations in strengthening their systems, networks, and servers through our all-inclusive pen testing service. Our testers devise remediation strategies and support throughout the implementation and mitigation process.

Phase 8: Re-Testing

On successful strategy and security controls implementation, our ethical hackers give the system a test run by deploying breach techniques to validate the effectiveness of fixes applied.

How Often Should Organizations Schedule and Conduct Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing is a proactive cybersecurity approach that simulates real-world external threats to help businesses identify vulnerabilities in their IT infrastructures. Its frequency depends on several factors, such as regulatory requirement changes, organization’s niche, and how often its system experiences technological alterations. Usually, cybersecurity experts suggest conducting penetration testing annually, especially when new upgrades, network changes, or application installations occur.

Question Image

How Long Does Penetration Testing Generally Take?

Generally, it takes a few days, but if it involves a comprehensive assessment, the tests can take up to two weeks maximum. Factors such as network size, connected devices, applications, and depth of assessment mainly influence the duration.

Question Image

What is the Difference Between Penetration Testing Service and Automated Vulnerability Scanning?

Automated vulnerability scanning leverages tech-advanced tools to identify known weaknesses in networks or IT systems. While it may be valuable, it often lacks comprehensive assessment delivered by PenTests. Penetration testing, on the contrary, encompasses both manual ISMS analysis and automated scanning. This allows ethical hackers to simulate real-world cyber-attacks and explore the paths that increase exploitation risks. Ultimately enabling them to curate tailored and comprehensive security posture results.

Question Image

Does Penetration Testing Procedures Disrupt or Compromise the Organization’s Daily Operations?

Penetration testing may have some impact on the organization’s IT infrastructures, but ethical hackers make necessary efforts to minimize disruptions. Ferro Technics team of experts works collaboratively with businesses to schedule testing at optimal times to ensure their daily operations do not experience disruption.
