Physical Penetration Testing

Is your organisation's security plan effective? With the threat landscape continually changing it has never been more important to be prepared. Our physical penetration testing program can help to identify gaps in your security measures and, if required, provide practical training to address these issues. At the end of the program a comprehensive action plan will be produced to suit your organisational needs.

Are you conscious of the risk of

  • Security breaches

  • Loss of sensitive material

  • Loss of equipment

  • Identifying hostile reconnaissance

Identifying weaknesses and vulnerabilities

Imagine having a critical friend who tells you the truth about your weaknesses and vulnerabilities. That's what physical penetration testing does for your organisation. By identifying these weaknesses and vulnerabilities in your physical security systems, processes, and controls, you can improve your overall security posture and protect your organisation from potential threats.

Realistic understanding of security

You can't be truly prepared for an attack if you don't have a realistic understanding of your security. That's where physical penetration testing comes in. It provides a simulated attack, carried out without activating an actual threat, that enables you to assess your security protocols and effectiveness against a potential threat. This knowledge helps you improve your security and be better prepared for actual attacks.

Assuring security

Your clients trust you to keep their assets secure. To ensure your physical security measures are effective, physical penetration testing is crucial. It provides a third-party assessment of your protocols and helps you comply with regulations. With physical penetration testing, you can assure clients that you're doing everything possible to maintain their trust and protect their assets. Take action now to ensure your organisation's security.

How the Process Works

Are you concerned about the security of your organisation? Let us take you through our simple three - step process for a physical penetration test that will help you identify vulnerabilities and improve your organisations security posture.

Step 1: Initial Assessment and Planning

The process starts with a meeting to identify the scope and requirements of the test. Our team will conduct an open-source intelligence exercise and desk-top reconnaissance to gather information about your systems and infrastructure. This information will help us identify potential vulnerabilities and determine the most appropriate testing methods.

Step 2: Penetration Testing

The first step is for us to conduct an initial reconnaissance in which we will gather as much information as possible about your systems and infrastructure.

This is followed by a confirmatory reconnaissance to verify and expand on the information gathered during the open-source intelligence gatherings and desk-top reconnaissance. Once this is complete, we will carry out the actual penetration test attempting to exploit any vulnerabilities that were identified during the reconnaissance and planning phases.

Step 3: Reporting and Recommendations

We will provide you with a detailed report of the vulnerabilities identified during the penetration test, along with recommendations on how to address these issues. This step is crucial as it helps you to understand the risks you face and provides you with a realistic roadmap for improving your security footprint.

Don't wait until it's too late. Let us help you protect your organisation from security breaches, theft, and loss of sensitive material. Contact us today to schedule a physical penetration test and improve your security posture.

Frequently Asked Questions

This is where you will find most answers. If there should still be any questions left, don't hesitate to contact us.
What is physical penetration testing?
Physical penetration testing is the process of testing an organisation's physical security controls and procedures to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be exploited by an attacker.
What are the benefits of physical penetration testing?
Physical penetration testing can improve physical security, demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements, be cost-effective, raise employee awareness, and help prevent security incidents.
What are the limitations of physical penetration testing?
Physical penetration testing may be limited by access to the target facility, may only identify existing vulnerabilities, and may result in false positives.
What are the risks of physical penetration testing?
Physical penetration testing can be disruptive, result in legal consequences if not conducted ethically, and potentially cause physical harm.
What are the best practices for physical penetration testing?
Best practices for physical penetration testing include planning ahead, obtaining consent, hiring qualified professionals, conducting testing in a controlled manner, documenting findings, maintaining confidentiality, and regularly reviewing and updating physical security controls and procedures.
