One of the verifications methods suggested is the execution of a penetration test on regular (or well-defined) intervals. But, do these mandatory penetration tests add value to the target organization? Or is it just to check one more box in a long compliance checklist? 

Key takeaways:

  • What are your experience with penetration testing?
  • How can one select the most appropriate vendor for the activity?
  • What do you (as a customer of the test) want to see more of (or less of)?
