What is Internal Penetration Testing?
Network testing is a way to find and fix problems in your computer network. It looks for weaknesses that bad people might use to break in and cause trouble. This kind of testing copies what bad people might do, like if someone who works for you gets mad and wants to do bad things. It’s a good idea to do network testing once a year or after you make big changes to your network. This helps you keep up with the latest tricks and ways to break into networks. Some rules say you have to do network testing, like PCI-DSS, ISO27001, and SOC 2.
Why Conduct an Internal Pentest?
Conducting an internal penetration test provides invaluable insights into the potential security risks your organization may face from internal threats. Here is what you will gain after conducting a project with our team:
Our external penetration tests will help validate the effectiveness of your existing security controls in preventing and detecting external attacks. By simulating an attacker, our experts will identify gaps in your defenses and provide remediation measures to improve your ability to prevent cyberattacks.
Our internal penetration testing service will simulate real-world attack scenarios to help you understand the consequences of a successful breach. This includes the potential for data loss, system downtime, and reputational damage. By knowing the potential impact, you can prioritize remediation efforts and better protect your organization.
Using a mix of automated and manual techniques, our team will identify all security vulnerabilities within your internal network, including misconfigurations, outdated software, and weak access controls. This will help you prioritize remediation efforts and reduce your overall risk exposure.
Many regulatory frameworks require internal penetration testing to be performed as part of their compliance requirements. Our tests will help ensure that your organization meets these requirements efficiently and avoids potential penalties for non-compliance.
When Should You Perform an Internal Penetration Test?
Knowing when to conduct internal penetration testing is essential for maintaining a strong security posture. It is highly recommended to perform internal pentests in the following situations to stay proactively prepared to handle potential threats:
Common Cybersecurity Risks &
Internal penetration testing often reveals several common vulnerabilities, including:
Inadequate encryption can leave data transmissions susceptible to interception and unauthorized access.
Failing to apply security patches can leave your systems vulnerable to known exploits and attacks.
A lack of proper monitoring and logging can make it difficult to detect and respond to potential security incidents in a timely manner.
Weak or improperly implemented authentication mechanisms can allow unauthorized access to sensitive data and systems.
Without proper data segmentation, an attacker could potentially access multiple parts of your network, leading to increased damage.
Attackers can use stolen credentials or infected devices to infiltrate your network and access sensitive information.
