Connecting IT Security Compliance with Penetration Testing

Out of need, not out of choice – that’s cyber security compliance. A pro-active security strategy aligns compliance seamlessly in identifying the threats and achieving the compliance. 

Penetration testing sits at the heart of any security programme. Ever-increasing TTPs (tactics, techniques and procedures) complexity is constantly adding to attack surface of digital assets used to conduct business. 

Regulatory requirements are developing and demanding continuous need to monitor and manage security vulnerabilities that demands more than a tick in the box approach. Our compliance aligned penetration testing ensures that identified vulnerabilities carry relevant context if they are a genuine threat to the organisation.
