Network Penetration Testing: Assess Your Security Before Attackers Do

If your business was hacked tomorrow, do you know what would happen? Protecting your valuable assets and customer data is paramount in today's digital landscape. Alongside robust security software, regular network penetration tests play a critical role, and these tests are precisely what cybersecurity insurers will look for when assessing your policy.

What is Network Penetration Testing?

Network penetration testing is a security test where experts try to hack into an organization’s computer network to find vulnerabilities and weaknesses. It’s like a “mock” hack to see if a hacker could get in and cause damage. The goal is to identify any problems and fix them before a real hacker can take advantage. It’s basically a way to check the security of an organization’s network.

How Do Data Breaches Occur?

A data breach occurs when a cybercriminal infiltrates a data source and extracts confidential information. This can be done by accessing a computer or network to steal local files or by bypassing network security remotely. The most common cyber attacks used in data breaches are outlined below.


This software gains access to and locks down access to vital data. Files and systems are locked down and a fee is demanded commonly in the form of cryptocurrency.

Common Target: Enterprise companies and businesses


Commonly referred to as “malicious software,” Malware is a term that describes any program or code that harmfully probes systems.

Common Target: Individuals and businesses


These scams are one of the most common ways hackers gain access to sensitive or confidential information. Phishing involves sending fraudulent emails that appear to be from a reputable company, with the goal of deceiving recipients into either clicking on a malicious link or downloading an infected attachment, usually to steal financial or confidential information.

Common Target: Individuals and businesses

Denial of Service

This is a cyber-attack in which the perpetrator seeks to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users by temporarily or indefinitely disrupting services of a host connected to the Internet. It is typically accomplished by flooding the targeted machine or resource with superfluous requests in an attempt to overload systems and prevent some or all legitimate requests from being fulfilled.

Common Target: Sites or services hosted on high-profile web servers such as banks
