What is Security Assessment/ Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing, pentesting, or security assessment, is a form of ethical cyber security assessment activity which is conducted to find, safely exploit, help fix vulnerabilities in computer systems, applications, websites, and networks. Using the same tools, and methods utilised by cyber criminals, penetration testing replicates the nature of a genuine cyber-attack. Carrying out a security assessment test allows organisations to reduce the security risks and improve the overall security posture by mitigating weaknesses before a malicious attacker exploit them.
