A vulnerability assessment simply identifies and reports noted vulnerabilities, whereas a penetration test attempts to exploit the vulnerabilities to determine whether unauthorized access or other malicious activity is possible.
Penetration testing should include network and application layer testing as well as controls and processes around the networks and applications, and should occur from both outside the network trying to come in (external testing) and from inside the network. Do not wait for a vulnerability to be exposed, contact a Polybian expert.
Ethical Testing should be performed atleast annually throughout the lifetime of a business. For organizations that aspire to adjust their strategies with common threats and ensure they comply with compliance should perform this assessment quarterly or semi-annually.
While testing is paramount, organizations should loook to remediate risks on the report and not place the contents of the report in an unused binder.
