PENETRATION TESTING?

Penetration Testing is an ethical process a”Whitehat” would use to launch a cyber attack to detect system weaknesses.

It consists of a series of tests used to identify vulnerabilities of a business network and devices that could potentially be exploited by cyber-criminals for malicious attacks.

There are two versions of Penetration testing, Whitehat and Black Hat. Whitehat testing is ethical hacking, as permission has been granted by the system owners. Unlike a black hat hacker who breaks into systems for malicious reasons.

White hat testing can include a variety of techniques such as penetration testing, vulnerability assessments and security audits. These tests are usually conducted in a controlled environment and follow a specific methodology to ensure they are carried out safely and effectively as an important part of maintaining and improving cyber-security.
