Why a VAPT?

As companies begin to realize the severity of attacks and the impacts on their business, they face a daunting array of initial steps.  But as businesses work out what to fix and what to strengthen, they must first understand what is susceptible or exposed.

When should I get a VAPT and how often do I re-test?

The simple answer to the first part of this question is that if you have never conducted a VAPT then it’s NOW! The threat to businesses is ever-present and the sooner vulnerabilities are isolated and security measures implemented the better.

 

Penetration Testing may be a single action but it is not a one-time activity and the timing of the test and subsequent re-tests can depend on a number of contributing factors such as the size of your company and the complexity of your infrastructure. For most small to medium sized businesses this should be done once a year. For more mature organizations they may do this quarterly, monthly, or more frequently for some. It also should be scheduled to:

Identify and Prioritize Risks

  • To evaluate current security
  • To understand what controls are necessary to maintain a high level of security for your organization
  • To prioritize risks to help anticipate risks, prevent potential attacks and knowing which security areas to invest resources into

Comply with Industry Standards and Regulations

  • VAPTs help address the compliance and security obligations that are mandated by industry standards and regulations such as FTC Safeguards Rule, PCI, HIPAA, FISMA, NIST SP 800-171, and ISO 27001.

Avoid the Cost and Reputation Impact

  • From Legal fees, IT remediation, customer protection programs, to a loss in sales, the cost for organizations can be millions of dollars. But the impacts on reputations can impact potential sales for months or years.
