Penetration testing is conducted – a form of “point-in-time” testing where IT applications and infrastructure are assessed for weaknesses, misconfiguration or known vulnerabilities.
Penetration testing is used to assess the current security posture and provide insight on vulnerabilities that are not identified traditionally by other means. Organisations without a sufficient grasp of their vulnerabilities are unable to strategise or prioritise security resources effectively.
In Australia, corporate directors now hold responsibility for cybersecurity in their businesses. Mandatory data breach disclosure laws are also now in place, with legislation set to tighten due the string of very public breaches. Businesses have collapsed within a day of being hacked. The consequences for not knowing your security posture could be dire.
Cythera will seek to understand your business and identify your key risks and can perform different types of penetration tests. See some examples below:
An assessment can include:
Cythera will assess your external perimeter and Internet facing assets to identify vulnerabilies that face your organisation.
Cythera will explore your internal network and see what vulnerabilities exist that could be enabled to someone with inside access.

A penetration test is designed to test the security controls of your IT assets in a similar fashion to what a hacker or cybercriminal would.
Using a structured approach, Cythera are able to identify vulnerabilities in your environment and potentially exploit them to demonstrate the seveirity of the issue. Cythera then provide input into how you may remediate these same vulnerabilities found.
This is an extremely subjective question with no easy answer, as it is dependent upon the scope of the test. However, cost constraints are a common consideration we face daily when scoping a penetration test. There are several ways in which we can address these concerns.
