These systems are susceptible to all manner of exploitation. They contain all sorts of data and are crucial to our daily tasks and activities. Organizations feel the effects of an interruption in services far and wide.
Penetration testing simulates the kind of attack(s) that organizations face, probing for weaknesses that leave an entity vulnerable to real attacks.
