Penetration testing is the methodology of ethically attempting to break in to an organisation's systems by exploiting any vulnerabilities, with the goal of determining whether an organisation's computer systems are secure. As hackers and would-be cyber attackers become more brazen, the importance of penetration testing cannot be stressed highly enough. This essential BCS guide for business and IT managers, in collaboration with CREST, explains the process of penetration testing and the benefits it brings. With contributions from practising penetration testers, information security experts and CREST, the book brings together a wide range of expertise, insight, and tips for setting up a penetration testing programme, maintaining it, and responding to the results of penetration tests.
The BCS-CREST penetration testing working group are all penetration testing experts from across the security industry. From university lecturers specialising in information security, to penetration testers and consultants, to information security managers, they all have insight to share on preparing, carrying out, and responding to penetration testing.
