An effective security program must validate the effectiveness of the security controls being used to protect systems that are believed to be secure or else provide evidence that discovered vulnerabilities can definitely be compromised.

By performing penetration testing, organizations can closely approximate the circumstances of an adversary attempting to compromise their systems. To be effective, penetration testing must use the equivalent tools and the Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) that adversaries would be expected to employ. Apart from demonstrating the effectiveness of existing controls and offering a credible level of assurance, penetration testing can also uncover new methods of compromise that can be used to update and strengthen an organization’s security posture.
Penetration testing applies a systematic, validation-centric process that provides meaningful results without posing any actual risk to the organization. The process must, therefore, work within the boundaries and ground rules defined and authorized by the organization to avoid business impact and potential legal ramifications.
It is not sufficient, however, to simply mitigate the risk from validated weaknesses after performing a penetration test. The one or more business processes – or the lack of a process – that gave way to the vulnerability must be addressed as part of an overarching governance program. The overall success of penetration testing must reduce the immediate risk to the organization to a level that falls within the organization’s risk appetite. Additionally, the current risk level compared against the benefit–cost ratio of controls must be taken into account when prioritizing risk mitigation activities. Furthermore, the long-term effectiveness of risk mitigation options, their associated impact on business, and the cost of controls must be considered during the risk mitigation and control selection process
The CyberStash Penetration Testing Service validates the effectiveness of an organization’s security program and associated technical controls through regular single or managed assessments.
CyberStash takes a proven approach to conducting penetration testing.
The CyberStash Penetration Testing Service leverages industry-leading standards and practices.
We support the following standards
To underpin the program’s success, CyberStash can additionally provide a Service Governance layer where we work with the Client to ensure they prioritize and remediate any underlying vulnerabilities that might allow their business assets to be exploited. Once weaknesses have been remediated, we conduct a further penetration assessment to validate control effectiveness.
Results and recommendations arising from the CyberStash Penetration Testing Service are documented and presented to meet the needs of both an executive and a technical audience.
