What should good pen testing Include?
Every penetration testing project should begin with a thorough assessment of the company's potential entry points. Through this evaluation, all possible points of entry into the network, such as open ports, unpatched vulnerabilities, improperly configured systems, and weak passwords, should be discovered.
Following the determination of all possible entry points into the network, the penetration tester should attempt to gain access to the system by exploiting those points. As soon as the tester gains entry, it is imperative that he or she ensures that no sensitive information has been exposed, such as credit card numbers, bank account details, or trade secrets. Penetration testers attempt to gain administrative access as a final step.
