Here's a little need to know information
Penetration Testing is the systematic process of identifying and exploiting vulnerabilities in a range of business assets, including; applications, networks, mobile devices and wireless networks. Penetration Tests (Pen Tests) aim to evaluate these vulnerabilities and ascertain whether exploitation is possible and how much of an impact there is to the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) of your data.
A penetration test forms part of an organisation showing due diligence and care for the data it protects as well as its user base. By performing penetration testing you are taking the first step in protecting your organisations data and in addition protecting its credibility.
