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.
