Internal Penetration Testing FAQs
An internal penetration test identifies and remediates all weaknesses to your internal IT environment, to prevent costly and damaging exploitation from hackers. Once weaknesses have been found, Gridware will provide their respective remediation activities for your company to implement, followed by re-verification testing to ensure that all changes have been made correctly.
It is crucial to regularly test your internal cyber environment to protect your organisation from external intruders, malicious insiders and accidental staff errors. By doing so, you can guarantee that threat actors will not gain unauthorised access to your internal network and private data, as well as gain assurance that your organisation will not experience costly downtime and damaging reputational damage as a result of an internal data breach.
Internal penetration testing should be performed by an external provider to guarantee that there is no bias in the assessment and that it is done separately from the company by CREST-accredited experts who are up to date on vulnerabilities and are familiar with both international and industry standards.
Typically, internal penetration testing is completed within 3-5 days, depending on the size of the company and number of sites.
