NSS can conduct a complete, human-driven penetration test to IT systems and procedures. Theses tests are carefully designed and crafted to define any gaps in systems without causing any downtime or unnecessary security risks. NSS offers several different types of Penetrations Tests to review different IT areas:
- Electronic Penetration Test: a purely electronic attempt to breach IT systems from the outside using electronic methods only.
- Social Engineering Penetration Test: The weakest point of any system is often the human element. This test stresses personnel policies and procedures to make sure that staff members are following them. NSS trained personell uses phone, email and even in person visits to verify staff compliance with firm policies.
- Physical Penetration Test: This test examines the physical protections to IT systems. This is particularly useful for government and medical facilities where classified or sensitive data needs to be protected with strong physical controls.
In conjunction with internal and external NETSCAN vulnerability scans, an NSS Penetration Test can be part of a complete program for electronic security
