Cyber Security Penetration Testing
Better vulnerability discovery, faster reporting
Powerful Cyber Security testing tools to help you quickly identify and secure the vulnerabilities in your business.
Cyber security testing is the best way to fully ensure that your network is safe from external attacks. It enables you to identify the vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure and make sure that they are resolved before cyber criminals can exploit them.
At EBC Group, we offer Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Scanning to provide the most in-depth examination of your systems to ensure that all areas of risk are uncovered. Vulnerability Scanning uses software to detect and report potential vulnerabilities in your system, whilst Penetration Testing is a hands-on test carried out by a penetration tester who identifies and exploits weaknesses in your system in the same way a hacker would.
Our team of cyber security experts have a wealth of experience in network security and will find any weaknesses you have, investigate them and highlight which areas you need to improve in order of priority. Testing your systems regularly is essential to protecting your data, assets and the reputation of your business.

What is penetration testing?
Penetration testing is the best way to fully ensure that your network is safe from external attacks. It enables you to identify the vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure and make sure that they are resolved before cyber criminals can exploit them.
EBC Group offers powerful penetration testing services to quickly identify and secure vulnerabilities in your business.
Do I need security & penetration testing?
Penetration testing is essential for a wide range of organisations, including businesses of all sizes, accountants, government sectors, leisure & hospitality, educational institutions, manufacturers, legal firms, non-profit organisations, and any entity with an online presence.
This proactive cyber security practice helps identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in networks, applications, and systems, enabling organisations to strengthen their defences, protect sensitive data, and safeguard their reputation against potential cyber threats.
Features and benefits of cyber security penetration testing
Reports inform you of security vulnerabilities, so you know where improvements can be made
Expert testers will try to exploit identified vulnerabilities, showing what a hacker would do in the real world
Test your security and response capabilities, feedback will tell you what actions need to be taken
Ensure operations don’t suffer with regular tests- this should be considered as a continuity audit
Industry and legal requirements may require a certain level of testing, which requires regular tests and security reviews
Systematic security reviews and tests will affirm trust and confidence by customers, partners and suppliers
The testing of your network and systems shouldn’t be a one-time task. As time goes on new software may be deployed and changes are made, meaning they need to be tested or re-tested.
Depending on your industry, various regulations may require a business to perform regular security tasks, which could include testing. Although mandatory for some businesses, testing is not a ‘one size fits’ all, and at EBC Group we can help understand your businesses demands, and provide successful security testing.
Vulnerability Scanning- Provides a snapshot of the current status of your security and identifies any major issues. Vulnerability Scanning can indicate whether you require a further evaluation of your security mechanisms.
Web application Penetration Testing- Will identify vulnerabilities within your website which could be accessed through online cyber attacks. Exploitation can result in the theft of information and irreparable damage to your systems.
Network Penetration Testing- Goes beyond Vulnerability Scanning and evaluates the security of a system, while attempting to expose and exploit vulnerabilities and weaknesses through a simulated attack. Bypassing known security weaknesses, the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certified manual penetration testing will attempt to branch out and gain further access to other applications, databases and resources without causing any disruption or damage to your systems and processes.
Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation is a government-backed scheme and is recognised as an excellent first step towards becoming cyber secure. Having the Cyber Essentials badge proves to your clients and suppliers that your organisation has adequately protected itself and is operating a basic level of security. It is a self-assessment process, signed off by a senior executive, followed by an external verification by an independent certification body.
EBC Group’s cyber team can help your business achieve Cyber Essentials and guide it through the required steps to accreditation of Cyber Essentials. Organisations can take further steps to a heightened level of protection (Cyber Essentials Plus) which involves a check of your security by an external certifying body. This offers a higher level of assurance through the external testing of the organisation’s cyber security approach. This level is optional and provides more in-depth assessment of the security controls to protect from basic cyber-attacks
