All About Vulnerability Testing
What is vulnerability testing?
Vulnerability testing is designed to identify any weaknesses in your IT network. The results of which will tell you where and how to strengthen your organisation’s IT security.
Why is it important?
Left untested, if you have any weak spot you don’t know about, these can make it easier for security incidents such as data breaches, ransomware attacks and malware to infiltrate your IT systems.
Uncovering the weak spots will enable you to prevent hackers from exploiting those weaknesses.
The cost of cyberattacks can be devastating to businesses, so any measures you can do to help prevent this is well worth considering.
So we can do a vulnerability test and then we’ll be fine?
Vulnerability testing needs to be ongoing to be effective. Threats constantly evolve. Cybercriminals are constantly looking for new ways to exploit IT networks and software applications. If there is a new vulnerability which hasn’t been patched, you can guarantee they will find it.
IT security incidents happen all the time, even when you think your business isn’t a target. Recent data shows that 43% of all cyberattacks have targeted small businesses. These criminals aren’t just going for the big corporates, literally any business could be targeted, and vulnerability testing is one way to check your networks are secure.
