Infrastructure Penetration Testing

Advanced Penetration Testing to identify vulnerable aspects of your organisations infrastructure

Dedicated infrastructure testing involves looking at your IT systems as a whole, including both your hardware and software. This enables SES to assess existing security measures and highlight areas for improvement. Our dedicated consultants utilise industry-leading methodologies to identify any potential vulnerabilities which could present an entry point into your systems, as well as providing advice for remediating any vulnerabilities before they can be exploited. 

SES would highly recommend organisations perform dedicated infrastructure testing as part of a holistic, overall security assessment. This aspect of testing provides visibility of your overall security posture and raises awareness of the risks and vulnerabilities that are currently carried by your organisation. 


Benefits of Infrastructure Testing

Dedicated Infrastructure testing should form a critical part of your organisation's Penetration Testing. Organisations rely on their hardware and software daily and infrastructure testing is one of the most effective ways to ensure both your hardware and software is safe.

Four key elements of infrastructure Testing

Our expertise. Your questions answered

What’s the easiest thing to implement in my office?

There are many controls every organisation should put in place to ensure good defence against cyber threat - from the basics like using anti-virus, email filters and firewalls, to more in-depth activities, like Penetration Testing and Phishing Assessments. One of the basic controls you can implement easily in both your professional and personal lives is good password hygiene. In some cases, your password is often the only thing keeping cyber criminals away from your sensitive information; length is the primary factor when creating a strong password—the longer it is, the more guesses will be needed by hackers to get it right.

Am I investing my Cyber Security budget correctly?

You could take a blanket approach and cover every possibility, but that’s an expensive strategy and your Finance Manager or CFO probably wouldn’t be happy to spend money unnecessarily. Every business faces different threats, so what the organisation in the next office needs to defend against isn’t necessarily what you need to invest in. It’s important to get an understanding of your threat profile and align that with the risks you’re willing to take (or not take). From there, you can decide what you should be investing in.

How do I educate my team to handle cyber threats?

The cyber threat is ever-changing and even with the best technical defences in place, the end-users (i.e. humans) are usually the weakest link. That is not to say that cyber security should only be non-technical, but it is important to have the right balance. Knowing where to start for cyber security generally can be difficult and working out what your team needs to know is a bit overwhelming. Like knowing where to invest your budget, how you train your team also starts with understanding your specific threats.

What do I do when something goes wrong?

Frustratingly, you’ve put in place all these useful security controls, but with the threats changing so often, keeping up can be hard. Therefore, it’s important to have the mindset that, it’s not about if you get breached, it’s about when you get breached and then how you handle it. Having a plan in place will ensure the consequences of a breach don’t undo of all your hard work in developing your organisation and building your reputation.
