Cyber Resilience 22nd February 2023

As the cyber landscape evolves, so too must your defences. One vital tool is perimeter penetration testing, which offers significant financial advantages for any organisation.

From identifying vulnerabilities early to preventing costly data breaches and keeping the trust of your customers, regular testing fortifies your security, bolstering your bottom line.

Prevention is cheaper than cure

Identifying and rectifying vulnerabilities early can save you from the potentially prohibitive costs associated with data breaches, which can include penalties, lawsuits, and recovery efforts.

Lower insurance premiums

Many cyber insurance providers offer reduced rates to organisations that can show a strong commitment to cybersecurity.

Prevent downtime

Unplanned outages due to a security incident can halt your operations, resulting in lost revenue and reduced productivity. By finding vulnerabilities before they are exploited, you can help ensure that your business operations continue uninterrupted.

Maintaining customer trust

A security incident can severely damage your reputation, potentially leading to loss of customers and decreased sales. By prioritising security and regularly testing your defences, you can demonstrate your commitment to protecting customer data, helping to maintain and even increase your customer base.

Perimeter penetration testing supplies clear insights into where an organisation’s cybersecurity vulnerabilities lie, guiding targeted and efficient resource allocation. It empowers organisations to focus their spending on identified areas of weakness, thereby maximising return on investment. As a result, not a pound is wasted on unnecessary blanket solutions, and every investment made directly contributes to strengthening your security posture.

  • The Ponemon Institute found that 66% of small and medium-sized businesses worldwide experienced a cyber-attack in 2019. Regular penetration testing can help find vulnerabilities to prevent such attacks.
  • According to the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 43% of data breaches involved small businesses. Penetration testing can help reduce these breaches.
  • The U.S. National Cyber Security Alliance found that 60% of small companies are unable to sustain their businesses over six months after a cyber-attack, highlighting the importance of pre-emptive measures like pen-testing.
