What's the Difference Between Penetration Testing And Ethical Hacking?

Ethical hacking and penetration testing are both essential components of cybersecurity testing, but they differ in their objectives and methodologies. Ethical hacking, also known as white-hat hacking, involves simulating the actions of a malicious hacker to identify vulnerabilities within an organisation's systems and networks. The primary objective of ethical hacking is to proactively identify and address potential security weaknesses before they can be exploited by unauthorised individuals.

The Role of Penetration Testing in NIS2 Compliance: Insights from KomodoSec

As the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve, the importance of rigorous and proactive security measures has never been more pronounced. The Network and Information Security (NIS2) Directive, an initiative by the European Union, is set to redefine cybersecurity standards for essential and important entities, emphasizing the need for robust risk management, incident response, and business continuity planning.

Our Penetration Testing as a Service (PTaaS) advocates a continuous cycle of testing and remediation. It suggests that your security posture is always changing so in order to combat this moving target there must be an on-going program of testing, remediation and management. The Penetration Testing Methodology understands that there is a need to test and check the entire platform stack.

A Deep Dive into Penetration Testing of macOS Applications (Part 3)

This is the final installment of the blog series “A Deep Dive into Penetration Testing of macOS Applications.” Previously, we discussed the structure of macOS applications and their analysis techniques. Now, we will focus on client-side attacks in macOS applications. In penetration testing, the goal is to identify vulnerabilities in the app. To do that effectively, it’s important to understand how these attacks work. So, let’s dive in and learn more!

Network Pentesting - Your Cybersecurity Secret Weapon

In today’s challenging economy, no company can afford to fall victim to cybersecurity trouble like a cyberattack or data breach. Companies can invest in a wide array of cybersecurity solutions to help safeguard their networks and data, but how can they be sure that they’re making the right security choices? Even with a solid investment in cybersecurity, a company could still have dangerous vulnerabilities that cybercriminals can exploit. Enter penetration testing.

The role of penetration testing in cybersecurity

Cybersecurity forms the backbone of safeguarding your business’s data. With cybercrime becoming more sophisticated, traditional security measures are often insufficient. Staying vigilant and proactive is more important than ever. Penetration testing, a critical component of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, plays a pivotal role in this endeavour.

How to master pen testing in an agile environment

Problems arise when teams are too siloed. In the past, organizations ran into trouble when Development teams would hand over finished code with security problems to IT Operations to deploy and manage. They realized it was faster and more effective to work together throughout the product lifecycle in a DevOps model, picking up on issues and resolving them as they went in an agile way of working.

PCI DSS and penetration testing

PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) is a set of security controls created to ensure all companies that accept, process, store or transmit credit card data maintain an audit-ready environment. Version 4.0 was published in March 2022; organizations required to be compliant have until March 31, 2024, when compliance must be complete.
