‘Penetration Testers’ Can Readily Check Your Security


If you have any doubts about the effectiveness of the security measures you’ve taken at your workplace – and you should have, actually – consider hiring or retaining penetration testers – or “pentesters” for short. That’s the advice of SecurityInfoWatch in a post, “Inside the Mind of Hackers”. This holds for both perimeter and digital security, though InfoWatch is concerned primarily about computer hackers.

From the work of Australia-based cyber security firm Nuix, InfoWatch quotes insights from a survey of penetration testers – good guys who think like bad guys – who make computer hacking sound like a vainglory affair, which it indeed is. There’s pride, after all, in breaking in quickly.

As to protecting a physical perimeter and entryways, ProBarrier Engineering is similarly proud of its own abilities on behalf of clients.
