Cybersecurity Techniques: Ethical Hacking, Penetration Testing, and Vulnerability Scanning
One of the best ways to protect your business from cyber threats is to know exactly how it is vulnerable to them. Crypto Secure Vault specializes in cybersecurity for businesses like yours. We have developed keen techniques that can help us identify your vulnerabilities, so you know what to do to keep your business safe from cyber threats and hackers.
Our techniques include ethical hacking, penetration testing, and vulnerability scanning, all of which puts us in the shoes of a potential hacker, allowing us to identify any potential areas of improvement within your business’s digital infrastructure.
What is Ethical Hacking?
Ethical hacking sounds confusing because it’s an oxymoron, but we promise it is a great technique that we can use to keep your business safe from online threats. We use ethical hacking to really get into the nitty-gritty of your business’s online presence and infrastructure. Basically, we pretend to be the hackers who could potentially hack into your system and we use this technique to hack into your cloud storage, business computers, and other electronics to identify where the vulnerabilities lie.
One thing you should know about real hackers is that they don’t give up. For example, let’s say they find a series of the same vulnerabilities with companies similar to yours. They may think “hey, that’ll work on theirs too,” and attempt to hack you. But let’s also say this didn’t work. They’re not just going to give up and move onto the next company. More likely than not, they’ll continue to try and break in, interested in all the files, data, and sensitive information you have in your cloud storage, stored on your computers, or even in your email accounts. As ethical hackers, we can identify all of the ways they may break in and then use our techniques to better protect your business. One of the ways we do this is through penetration testing.
Penetration testing, or a pen test, is used to analyze your computer’s security by acting out a cyber attack, with your approval of course. During this test, we search for both strengths and weaknesses. The weaknesses are used to identify and scan for vulnerabilities in your system that can allow hackers and unauthorized users to make their way into your system.
During a pen test, we test specific systems and identify a goal in the beginning. We also use specialized technology, such as Docker, a digital program used to store files and information in a container. Thinking like a hacker can help us identify issues before they come up.
The biggest goal of vulnerability testing is to scan for known issues. This can include searching for weaknesses in your computer systems and areas that have already been breached, and ensuring your risk management is successful in the long-run.
