Penetration testing services

Are you confident in the strength of your cybersecurity environment and controls?

Confirming the status and strength of your cybersecurity controls and environment is critical to understanding any vulnerabilities and opportunities for improvement. Penetration testing, or pen-testing simulates the actions of a real-world attacker to identify weaknesses by attempting to compromise a network (internal or external), application or technology system. The goal is to identify, manage and remediate vulnerabilities before a threat actor could exploit them to compromise your organization’s network.

Periodic penetration testing on a quarterly or annual basis has evolved into a best practice for a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, but it is also a regulatory requirement for many industries. During the engagement, RSM consultants note any vulnerabilities identified and exploited, and assign a rating of risk rating that categorizes the exposure by the level of risk posed to your environment. We share the findings with your team so you can begin addressing any security gaps, from adjusting controls and patching systems to making system upgrades.
