What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing, or pen testing as it is often referred to, involves an authorised individual adopting the role of a hacker and attempting to compromise or gain access to a network or an application. The objective is to evaluate and assess an organisation’s security posture and identify, analyse and exploit any vulnerabilities or misconfigurations that present a security risk.
A penetration test is able to evaluate the impact that a vulnerability or a set of vulnerabilities might have on the organisation and to highlight how even non-critical issues can be chained together to cause greater impact. By identifying any risks, they can be treated before they are targeted by malicious hackers.
