Major Breach Response Mistakes and How To Avoid Them

Penetration testing: Godsend or necessary evil?

The expansion of regulatory frameworks in multiple domains (e.g. PSD2, NIS, GDPR) had led to increased focus in how organizations manage their Information Security and how they verify that the deploy effective controls. One of the verifications methods suggested is the execution of a penetration test on regular (or well-defined) intervals. But, do these mandatory penetration tests add value to the target organization? Or is it just to check one more box in a long compliance checklist? 

Key takeaways:

  • What are your experience with penetration testing?
  • How can one select the most appropriate vendor for the activity?
  • What do you (as a customer of the test) want to see more of (or less of)?
