Penetration Testing

Today's organizations do all they can to protect their digital assets, but they don’t always test their defenses. Penetration testing (i.e. ethical hacking) from Breadcrumb Cybersecurity is a systematic set of processes that utilize various tools, methodologies, and experiences in an attempt to ethically breach a computer network. Our team of security professionals evades traditional prevention strategies, demonstrating real-world risks to your organization.


Types of Penetration Testing: (Ethical Hacking)

  • External
    • Identify and exploit vulnerabilities that are exposed to the internet. Real-world attacks to your firewall, and exposed applications, are simulated to give your business an accurate understanding of the risks you face.
  • Internal
    • Mimic a malicious insider (i.e. rogue employee) or an attacker that has gained access to an employee computer. Considering nearly 70% of all successful cyber breaches begin with an employee computer being compromised, understanding the risks you face inside of your network is crucial to defending it from breach.
  • Social Engineering
    • Social Engineering is a series of systematic email campaigns that test and evaluate staff awareness. The fake, but very convincing, SPAM messages are uniquely crafted to your businesses industry, and then sent to your staff. By simulating real-world SPAM techniques, your team is given a chance to learn the pitfalls of improper email habits without exposing your company to risk.
  • Wireless (WiFi)
    • Wireless networks are often the most susceptible to breach. Often extending the physical walls of your business, wireless networks are prone to intense levels of attack. A wireless penetration test will measure the effectiveness of your wireless configuration and the relative strength of your wireless encryption.

Human error is responsible for the majority of the worst reported data breaches.  A lack of cybersecurity awareness training leaves organizations susceptible to attacks and puts companies at risk of losing their reputation, customer loyalty, and potentially their bottom lines.  No company would allow their employees to provide customer service without undergoing training first. Yet, the majority of organizations grant access to company email, corporate documents, and even financial information without ever providing training on how to keep this important data secure. 

The following statistics uncover some of the necessity for employee (and management) cyber security training, and a company-wide cyber security policy:

  • “One in ten confessed to downloading content at work they should not”.
  • “Two-thirds (62%) admitted they have a very limited knowledge of IT Security”.
  • “More than half (51%) had no idea how to update the anti-virus protection on their company PC”.
  • “One in five workers (21%) let family and friends use company laptops and PCs to access the Internet”.

One of the most valuable investments an organization can make with regard to cybersecurity is training their team members. Short, intentional, and focused training events can reap huge benefits for employers. By preparing your employees, you dramatically lower the odds of a breach.
