The organisation provides application and network details for the penetration testing.
The organisation offers no information for the testing.
The organisation provides limited details on the targeted security systems.
This is the first step in the PCI DSS penetration testing. It involves defining the test's scope and identifying the organisation's PCI DSS compliance assessment requirements. Scoping determines the rules and limitations before the actual penetration testing.
This second step involves information gathering about the target systems and networks. This discovery step in the PCI DSS penetration testing also recognises all the hosts in the target network. The information gathered will be used to identify potential attack vectors.
This step involves exploiting the vulnerabilities of the systems to gain unauthorised entry. It can be a DoS attack, phishing, buffer overflow and SQL injections.
This is the comprehensive evaluation of the test results. It highlights detailed information about the system's vulnerabilities, potential impacts and suggestions to resolve them.
This entails ensuring all the identified security issues are fixed.
The application penetration test detects vulnerabilities caused by unsafe development or coding practices. It resolves the vulnerabilities and ensures no unauthorised access to sensitive data.
This test detects vulnerabilities around the weak security protocols of wireless technologies. Wireless network penetration testing eliminates these fraudulent access points using stronger passwords and updates the security protocols to global standards.
This test can identify security flaws like misconfigured software, outdated software and operating systems, firewalls and insecure protocols. The software becomes reconfigured, and obsolete software and operating systems are upgraded or replaced.
This test evaluates people and processes and their possibilities of bringing security risks to the organisation. The pentesting seeks to identify employees not adhering to safe security practices using social engineering methods like impersonation and phishing.
This segmentation check tests whether the rules isolating high-security networks from the less secure ones are valid and appropriate. This check protects sensitive data from breaches and malware.
It is essential to research past projects, past and current clients, and reviews before choosing your next penetration testing partner.
