Certifications & Accreditations

There are requirements that organisations using payment devices must strictly adhere to regularly. These PCI DSS requirements include:

  • MCSL

    Protection of cardholder's data

  • MCSL

    Building and maintaining a secure network

  • MCSL

    Maintaining a vulnerability management program

  • MCSL

    Maintaining an information security policy

  • MCSL

    Implementing strong access control measures

  • MCSL

    Regular monitoring and testing of networks.

There are three types of PCI DSS penetration testing:

White-box

White-box assessments

The organisation provides application and network details for the penetration testing.

Black-box

Black-box assessments

The organisation offers no information for the testing.

Grey-box

Grey-box assessments

The organisation provides limited details on the targeted security systems.

Microminder offers penetration testing to all infrastructural and security components, including mobile and web application systems. We also provide cloud security and vulnerability assessments.

Methodology behind PCI DSS penetration testing

PCI DSS penetration testing involves the proactive security identification system. These steps include:

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 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 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.

These criteria include:

White-box

Reputation

It is essential to research past projects, past and current clients, and reviews before choosing your next penetration testing partner.

Black-box

Remediation

It is essential to engage a company like Microminder, as we pride ourselves on being one of the best in the industry in proactively identifying security gaps and remediating them.

Grey-box

Service Legal Agreement (SLA)

It is vital to have a comprehensive agreement that takes care of the testing methodologies, deliverables, and limitations of penetration testing.

FAQs

Please identify the answer you are seeking.

Penetration testing is a type of security testing that is used to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by simulating an attack from an external or internal threat. A penetration test exploits the vulnerabilities further to discover the impacts on the systems.

Types of penetration testing include black box testing, white box testing, gray box testing, application testing, network testing, web application testing, and wireless testing and plenty more. You can find more details here

The purpose of penetration testing is to identify security vulnerabilities that could be exploited by an attacker, as well as identify weaknesses in an organisation’s security policies and procedures.

Organisations should conduct penetration tests on a regular basis, typically at least once a year.

A vulnerability assessment is a tool used to identify potential risks and weaknesses in an organisation’s security posture. A penetration test is a more thorough and in-depth analysis that is used to assess the security of an organisation’s systems and networks.

In order to conduct a penetration test, you need to have a thorough understanding of network security, apps and cloud environments and know how to use security tools and techniques.

Penetration testing can uncover a variety of information, such as open ports, weak passwords, unpatched vulnerabilities, system misconfigurations, and weak authentication mechanisms.

Penetration testing can help to identify security weaknesses that could be exploited by an attacker, as well as alert organisations to potential risks and vulnerabilities.

The risks associated with penetration testing include potential damage to systems, disruption of services, and disclosure of sensitive information. The likelihood of this is less than 0.10% as it’s performed in a controlled environment.

Common tools and techniques used in penetration testing include port scanning, vulnerability scanning, social engineering, exploitation, and privilege escalation.

The cost of a penetration test will depend on the scope and complexity of the test.

The duration of a penetration test will vary depending on the scope and complexity of the test, but typically it can take anywhere from 5 days on a simple web app testing to 15 days on a more complex app with multiple user roles and financial transactions. This includes reporting.

The scope of the penetration testing report is dependent on the specific requirements of the client. It will typically include a detailed assessment of the network, systems, and applications for security vulnerabilities.

The report will include information such as the security vulnerabilities found, the steps taken to exploit them, screenshots, POCs and any recommendations for improving the security of the system. Full sample report can be found here Download

Techniques used to evaluate system weaknesses will include manual and automated methods such as port scanning, vulnerability scanning, exploitation and more.

The time frame for completing the report will depend on the size and complexity of the system, but typically it can take anywhere from 2 to 3 days.

The expected outcome of the report is to identify security vulnerabilities and provide recommendations to mitigate them.

The results of the testing will be communicated to the client in the form of a written report and a via our live dashboard.

The process for follow-up and remediation of any vulnerabilities identified in the report will involve working with the client to develop and implement a plan to address the identified issues. We have post report call or an onsite meeting as needed. This can also include management/ board presentation for free.

Sensitive data will be handled in accordance with the client’s requirements and industry best practices for security. we are ISO27001, ISO9001 in addition to being CREST and CE plus certified. We take data security and privacy seriously.

Security measures taken to protect the testing environment will include strong authentication, encryption, and other measures to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the data.

The results of the testing will be documented in the report and any additional documentation requested by the client. We provide trend history reports, summary reports, online dashboard in addition to the usual pdf reports.
