The key difference between vulnerability scanning and penetration testing concerns the focus of the security project.
In today’s modern connected world cyber security matters and is vital for protecting our crucial infrastructure. The threat of cyber-attacks is now a worldwide concern, as high-profile breaches create fear that cybercrime could endanger the global economy.
When combined cyber security and information security help provide organisations with a modern day approach to building a strong security posture. The two security practices also help develop the organisation’s security resilience.
Weak security is a major flaw of most web applications. Leaving the business environment highly susceptible to cybersecurity attacks every day. Insecure applications provide a gateway for criminals to pivot directly into an organisation’s corporate environment. So why are the organisations leaving themselves vulnerable through poor web security practice? Moreover, how can companies strengthen their cybersecurity to develop programs that deliver the best web application technology and not compromise the app's security?

The world loves assessments. Be it the endless Top 10 lists on Facebook, from the Forbes 500 to the FT 1000 and more. Smaller assessments include a person’s annual physical, car inspections, report cards from school, and more. In the world of information security, a risk assessment is an invaluable method for a firm to determine their information security posture. There is a lot at stake when a firm performs a cyber security risk assessment, so it’s imperative that it be done right.
