Penetration Testing Services: ensure you are secure and compliant
Is your internal security team struggling to meet policy or compliance requirements before the year is out, or are you worried about vulnerabilities that may be compromised during the holiday season while you’re away?
Are you a project manager, needing to ensure recent platform changes are secure? Avocado’s penetration testing services can help!
In the ever-evolving landscape of digital technology, businesses face the challenge of ensuring the security and compliance of their IT operations, especially after significant changes like replatforming or digital transformation initiatives.
And, as the year draws to a close, the urgency to meet insurance policy requirements and mitigating the risks of ‘skeleton staff’ bringing out the ‘skeletons in the closet’ during the Christmas break is heightened! Studies show that cyber attacks increase by 40% during the holiday period.
At Avocado Penetration Testing Services, we understand the importance of safeguarding your digital assets against potential threats.
When do you require a penetration tester?
Penetration testing is critical for compliance obligations, as well as whenever you make a digital change. Below are two scenarios we commonly see:
1. Internal Security Teams – policy renewals
For internal security teams facing compliance challenges, Avocado Penetration Testing offers Compliance Assurance. We help you meet policy requirements with comprehensive testing services. Additionally, our Recurring Support ensures you can access our expertise whenever needed, providing reliable assistance for annual policy renewals.
2. Project Teams – validating changes
Digital transitions, while beneficial, often leave organisations vulnerable to cybersecurity risks. Project teams, in particular, might find themselves questioning the security of their newly implemented platforms. Enter penetration testing – a strategic approach to identifying vulnerabilities in IT systems and ensuring they are resilient against cyber threats.
The cost of not performing a penetration test
Reports highlight the average cost of an Australian data breach has increased by 32 per cent in the last five years – reaching AUD $4.03 million. One of the most common breaches were stolen or compromised credentials with data being stored across multiple types of environments in Australia.
Additionally, it is now regulated that cyber breaches must be disclosed. Non-compliance may see organisations faced with a penalty for non-disclosure of up to $1.8 million for organisations and, with additional fines of up to $360,000 for each board member.
Breached organisations come in all shapes and sizes, particularly affected are the Financial Services, Technology and Education sectors. To overcome costs associated with a breach, a penetration test swiftly and definitively assesses your organisation’s risk level at a specific point in time. It categorises identified vulnerabilities based on their severity, offering your management team prompt guidance to expedite necessary remediation measures.
