Penetration testing, or pen testing, is a cyber security assessment strategy used to investigate and remediate data system vulnerabilities. Pen testers simulate attacks using the same tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) utilised by real-world cyber attackers. With regular pen testing, an organization can identify and address weaknesses in their networks or applications before they can be exploited by cybercriminals.
