Experts in their fields, GY6 personnel are thought leaders in security counter-measures, analysis and developing technologies. They work to the highest professional and moral standards, whether they are providing advice, testing your defences or helping coach your staff.
Security audits, vulnerability assessments, and penetration testing are the three principal types of security diagnostics. Each of the three takes a distinct approach and may be best suited for a definite purpose.
Security audits measure an information system’s performance against a list of benchmarks.
A vulnerability assessment, on the other hand, involves a thorough study of an entire information system, seeking potential security flaws.
Penetration testing is a covert operation, in which a security expert tries a number of attacks to ascertain whether or not a system could weather the same types of attacks from a malicious hacker.
In penetration testing, the pretended attack can include anything a real attacker might try, such as social engineering.
Each of the approaches has essential strengths, GY6 advised using two or more of them as combination may be the most effective approach of all.
