penetration testingPenetration testing is an industry buzzword that is currently gaining in popularity. Considering its usefulness, this is not surprising. Penetration testing is actually a very detailed and thorough process of examination of an information system. During this process, penetration testers examine the security of the target system. Every penetration test is fully adapted to the needs and requirements of the client and its information system. In addition to conducting numerous checks using specialized tools, penetration testers need to have a vast degree of experience and knowledge. Unlike vulnerability scanning where the end goals are to find potential security risks, the goal of penetration testing is to take control of the target system. Actually, penetration testers try to act the same way potential attackers do. Naturally, with the exception they do not cause actual harm to the client system.

This begs the question as to what should or should not be included in a penetration test. By definition, a penetration test is highly invasive. What should be included in a penetration test? The harsh reality is everything should be tested. Real cyber criminals won’t spare your systems! Why should you?
