Penetration Testing

Penetration testing, often referred to as Pentesting, is a crucial practice within the realm of cybersecurity. It involves the systematic simulation of cyberattacks on a computer system, network, or application to uncover vulnerabilities and weaknesses that malicious actors could exploit. The primary goal of Pentesting is to assess the security posture of an organization's digital infrastructure, identifying potential points of entry for unauthorized access, data breaches, or other security incidents. By emulating real-world attack scenarios, pentesters help organizations understand their vulnerabilities and develop effective strategies to fortify their defenses. This proactive approach to cybersecurity is indispensable in an era where cyber threats continue to evolve in complexity.

Social Engineering Attack (Penetration testing) The ICT WEB team began the social engineering engagement by sending phishing emails to the Organization, which directed the employees to a spoofed variant and URL of the Organization’s website. The email and website requested that a user change their password and, as part of the process, provide their current username and password.

THE ICT WEB conducted  penetration testing of the Organization’s technology, people, and processes. Penetration testing included web applications, external IP addresses, internal network components, as well as social engineering attacks. We  followed a testing methodology that seeks to identify vulnerabilities and, through exploitation, determine the impact on the Organization’s business operations.

The results of the penetration testing indicated that the area of greatest risk for the Organization was found during social engineering attacks. The Organization’s employees were tricked into disclosing their usernames and passwords. Security awareness of employees is an important part of the overall security posture of any organization and it is often overlooked.

The phishing email was sent to 25 employees and successfully reached 23 inboxes. The results are shown below, indicating 11 employees clicked the link and 4 entered their credentials providing access to THE ICT WEB. At this point, ICT WEB could log into users’ email accounts and search for sensitive information or connect to the internal network. The attack also provided insight into potential patterns in the employee’s creation of passwords, which could result in additional compromise.

We strive to enable our clients to use their information assets to save money, reduce risk and to discover and realize new opportunities for their business through deeper insights of customers, markets and performance.

To prevent this from happening in the future, the Organization was advised to train the employees to check the URL and security of a website before entering any suspicious information into it. Employees should know how to verify the legitimacy of a website and what the Organization’s procedures are on reporting suspicious websites. They should have easy access (such as through email or a ticketing system) to contact management and or internal information technology staff to ask questions about any website they may encounter.
