As governments and enterprises worldwide are inundated with threats to their information assets, cyber penetration testing can prove invaluable to the process of cyber assessment and strategy building.
To accurately map cyber defense gaps, CyGov applies a threat-guided approach in which our offensive team simulates the attack model most relevant to the client. We pinpoint the assets most likely to be targeted and compromised, alongside a list of the most relevant attack vectors, their probability of being exploited, and the impact they have on business continuity. A variety of different methods are employed to mimic the attack modes targeting the client, with each method carefully chosen based on the client's needs. When commissioning a penetration test, there is no one correct or incorrect route. The chosen method depends on the scenario that needs to be tested.
Upon completion of one or more phases of penetration testing, our experts dissect the results, craft a plan to mitigate the gaps, and install the required security controls to prevent future attacks. This service provides a new perspective and a more detailed understanding of your organization’s cyber risk, while enhancing the output of a subsequent action plan.
