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.
RSM’s cyber testing team performs hundreds of offensive security assessments each year, and we are able to test every facet of your company’s attack surface.
Our advisors have extensive experience delivering web and mobile application security testing, penetration tests of corporate and industrial control system networks, and physical security and social engineering assessments.
We approach each assessment from an attacker’s viewpoint, identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities in order to demonstrate the potential consequences of security inaction.
The experienced RSM cybersecurity testing team holds various industry certifications and provides a breadth of penetration testing options to help keep your data and systems secure. Available options include:
Nearly every company now uses the cloud to support key business processes and applications, and we help you understand where new threats can emerge.
Our team acts as an external attacker and uses current threat methods in an attempt to breach your systems and applications.
We help ensure that your security posture and controls align with recognized best-practice guidelines.
Many attacks come from insiders, so we act as a user with internal access who attempts to compromise your network.
The payment card industry data security standard, or PCI DDS, has specific demands to verify that cardholder data remains secure, and our team analyzes your environment to assess compliance.
We test your networks to determine how connectivity with wireless devices can compromise security.
We provide a comprehensive, automated evaluation of your attack surface to discover any potential gaps.
Our team attacks your APIs endpoints and backend to identify exploitable flaws.
We evaluate your mobile policy to find gaps that threat actors may exploit.
All organizations utilize a host of software and applications on a daily basis to get the job done. Our team tests their potential weaknesses and integrations with other systems.
We train your developers on how to keep the critical applications that run your business secure.
We develop and execute fraudulent email campaigns to determine the susceptibility of your people to social engineering attacks.
Through phone calls, our team attempts to manipulate your employees into disclosing sensitive information.
We attempt to breach your physical security measures to gain access to sensitive data and networks.
We provide extensive training to ensure your people are aware of emerging threats and potential attack methods.
Our team simulates an attack to lure people into revealing key data through mobile messaging.
As sensors become more important in the collection of data during key processes and operations, we identify whether that data may be at risk.
We work with you in a simulated attack scenario to build response capabilities and detection signatures in real time.
Our team plays the role of an attacker in a real-world scenario, testing your response capabilities and reaction time.
We can tailor our testing methods for any potential situation your business encounters to determine how your systems and people react.
Really appreciate the awesome partnership and job you guys do.
Great work! The deliverables exceed the level of detail that we need. The organization of the report is fantastic.
We thought the assessments went really well last year, and we would like to engage RSM for the same project this year.
