Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing

Cybersecurity threats are growing in sophistication and volume, and your institution needs to keep pace. Penetration testing tools from CSI, like internal and external social engineering and web application testing, help you prevent cybersecurity vulnerabilities through ethical hacking.

Regular and professional testing of your networks ability to withstand attacks is crucial to your Information Security program. In fact, your financial institution is expected to perform internal penetration testing and external penetration testing of your networks at least once per year in order to meet Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) compliance.

Penetration Testing From CSI

As penetration testing service providers, CSI offers internal, external and wireless pen testing performed by our OSCP-, GIAC- and CISSP-certified consultants. We adopt a real-world attacker’s methodology of reconnaissance, scanning and exploitation through hacking testing. 

We offer the following pen testing services:

  • External Penetration Testing
    CSI's team gathers public information and conducts a vulnerability scan to identify any weaknesses in firewalls, perimeter routers, Web servers, mail services and other points of entry.
  • Internal Penetration Testing
    We attempt to gain access to your network through hands-on, manual testing and research without interruption of your services.
  • Wireless Penetration Testing
    Our team surveys the encryption and authentication methods in use on your wireless networks.

Social Engineering Penetration Testing  

Social engineering is one of the most common methods external attackers use to gain access to customer or member information. With CSI’s social engineering assessment, we can identify the potential holes in your “human network” to prevent breaches and strengthen your company’s security and compliance posture.

CSI's consultants work with you to determine how susceptible your employees are to social engineering attacks by performing targeted phishing tests. We then provide recommendations for fortifying your employees’ defenses against external attackers through our true-to-life social engineering tests:

  • Customized Social Engineering Attacks
    Our team conducts undercover interactive tests through phishing techniques to determine the degree that attackers can manipulate your employees.
  • Social Engineering Defense Recommendations
    Once your social engineering test is complete, we provide valuable feedback that your organization can use to strengthen your social engineering defenses.
  • Network Attack Simulations
    CSI can take social engineering penetration testing one step further by simulating an actual network attack similar to those used by many of today’s cybercriminals.

Web Application Security Testing 

No matter what the functional use of your Web applications, CSI’s Web application security testing keeps you secure by identifying vulnerabilities in the apps used by your business—whether that app is in-house, third-party proprietary or off-the-shelf. 

CSI’s customizable Web application penetration testing gives you confidence in your organization’s security by: 

  • Analyzing the security of your Web applications in relation to your overall network
  • Identifying application vulnerabilities and the exploitation impact to your information security
  • Scanning for the latest Web application security risks identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)
