Stealth penetration testing is a vital method for allowing organizations to determine how exposed their networks are to real world threats by showing how well corporate security processes, procedures and technologies hold up against authorized but unannounced attacks by veteran security specialists using advanced hacking techniques.
Decision Consultants’ security experts can perform extensive in-depth penetration testing without the knowledge of internal IT resources. Such testing uncovers whether existing security monitoring tools such as intrusion detection alerts and event log monitoring are correctly set up and actively monitored.
For larger organizations, Decision Consultants can perform anonymous physical security penetration testing, including attempts to gain unauthorized/unchecked access to physical premises by pretending to be authorized personnel, with proof of success from copying of confidential information and accessing internal network resources behind all perimeter firewalls.
Decision Consultants experts can use social engineering techniques and public information to attempt customized password penetration testing utilizing information such as employees’ family member names, birthdates, home addresses, and phone numbers. Decision Consultants team members can often quickly uncover this information through Internet online search and public records. Decision Consultants can uncover employee names/email addresses through publicly accessible information on the Internet, from PBX voice mail directories, public records filings, marketing materials and press releases, web sites, and receptionist.
Decision Consultants will provide a complete report of methods used and vulnerabilities uncovered during stealth penetration testing, along with a detailed list of recommended remediation steps. Decision Consultants can then work with internal IT staff to perform an audit and evaluation of the actual security protection, configuration, tools, and processes and help your company develop a comprehensive security plan.
