What Is A Penetration Test?  

Penetration testing AKA pen-testing or pen test is a process where a tester looks for exploitable vulnerabilities from within an IT infrastructure that may allow the tester to subvert, modify, and extract information.

The Process

Penetration tests are typically performed using manual or automated technologies to systematically compromise servers, endpoints, web applications, wireless networks, network devices, mobile devices, and other potential points of exposure.

The process typically includes the following steps: make sure to add a picture and have the structure as we did with common issues on the home page.

Planning & Reconnaissance

The first stage involves defining the scope and goals of a test, including the systems to be addressed and the testing methods to be used. Then, gather intelligence (e.g., network and domain names, mail servers) to better understand how the target works and its potential vulnerabilities. 

This information is then used to design a more effective security strategy, prioritize remediation, apply targeted patches, and improve overall security awareness.
