Why Businesses Require an Internal Pen Test

When one envisages cyber criminals, the picture that often comes to mind is of an individual in a dimly lit room, wearing a mask, endeavouring to gain unauthorised entrance to one's digital assets. Many businesses are strengthening their defences against external threats but overlook that 49% of cyber attacks originate internally!

A breach from within your business can be far more disastrous than an external threat, as individuals do not anticipate betrayal from those they trust. This is why companies of all sizes need internal pen tests. Internal penetration testing is a form of ethical hacking wherein testers, already having access to a network, seek to breach it from within to infiltrate and secure further entry.

The ethical hacker emulates the tactics of a genuine attack to pinpoint security loopholes within your network before cybercriminals can, allowing you to devise a strategy to rectify the issue before being compromised. Aside from that, an internal pen test helps businesses to stay compliant with cyber security regulations and build brand reputation and customer trust.

Our Internal Penetration Test Examines the Following IT Infrastructure:

  • Computer Systems
  • Routers, switches, printers, phone systems
  • WIFI Networks
  • Local Servers
  • Firewalls
  • Access Points

Microminder’s Internal Penetration Testing Procedures

Planning and Scoping: In this phase, we define the scope of the test to ensure that it's aligned with the organisation's goals. This involves establishing which systems, networks, and resources will be tested. Our experts then determine the testing methods and tools that will be most effective for the task at hand. It's also crucial to verify communication and escalation paths to make sure that any issues can be promptly addressed. At Microminder, we keep the objectives clear so that all stakeholders know the communication paths.

Information Gathering: We collect data on the internal network topology to understand how the network is structured. Our pen testers also identify live systems and network services currently in use. Additionally, we gather information on user accounts, internal applications, and system configurations to comprehensively understand the environment we are testing.

Vulnerability Assessment: Our experts will utilise automated scanning tools to identify known vulnerabilities in the systems swiftly. Aside from that, we will also manually review configurations to ensure they adhere to security best practices. Furthermore, our professionals will analyse network traffic to detect any suspicious or unencrypted data transmissions that could pose a security risk.

Threat Modelling and Risk Analysis: In this phase, we help you identify potential threat actors and the methods they might use to attack the system. Once detected, our security specialists will assess the risks associated with the identified vulnerabilities and prioritise them according to their risk levels.

Exploitation: We will attempt to exploit the discovered vulnerabilities to gain unauthorised access to the systems and document any successful exploits and the data that could be accessed through them. Additionally, our experts will attempt lateral movement within the network to see how far an attacker could penetrate.

Post-Exploitation Analysis: Our team will then evaluate the impact of successful exploits on the organisation, identify any sensitive data that could be exfiltrated by an attacker, and test the ability to maintain persistence within the network.

Reporting: Our security experts will document the techniques, findings, evidence, and recommendations in a comprehensive report. Also, we will include an executive summary for high-level stakeholders to grasp the key points quickly.

Remediation and Retesting: At Microminder, we ensure we assist your organisation in implementing the recommended security measures to address the identified vulnerabilities. We will retest your systems once the remediation efforts are complete to confirm the vulnerabilities have been effectively addressed.

How Microminder Ensures the Best Pen Testing Services

Our pen testers follow a streamlined process to guarantee the finest internal penetration testing experience.

  • Project onboarding: Our swift onboarding process takes mere minutes. Clients can expect to kickstart their projects on the same day they contact us. This efficiency guarantees that no time is wasted.
  • Project discussion and proposal sign-off: We thoroughly discuss with our clients to understand their specific needs and objectives. Following this, a detailed proposal is drafted and presented for approval, ensuring that both parties are on the same page.
  • Prerequisites shared and pen testing execution: Once the proposal is signed off, we share a list of the client's prerequisites. Subsequently, our team of experts conducts penetration testing, employing cutting-edge tools and methodologies to identify vulnerabilities within the system.
  • Reporting and remediation offered: After the testing phase, a comprehensive report is generated, which outlines the identified vulnerabilities and their potential impact. We don't just stop at reporting; we also offer remediation services to help clients address these susceptibilities and fortify their security posture.

This structured approach ensures seamless and effective internal penetration testing tailored to meet each client's unique requirements.
