Financial information and associated personally identifiable information are some of the most sought after data on the internet, and typically demand some of the highest rates on the dark web. Organizations dealing with large amounts of private financial information are at greater risk of being targeted – attackers want this data.
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) defined the PCI-DSS (Data Security Standard) to help standardize and codify a default, good-practice set of security controls designed to help protect financial data and organizations who manage and process it. This standard also includes requirements that organizations conduct penetration testing at least annually, or after any significant changes to the network or applications that could impact the security of the cardholder data environment.
Evolve Security’s PCI penetration testing services are designed to help you proactively manage risk of attack. Penetration testing is an essential part of the PCI-DSS compliance process since it helps organizations identify and remediate vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by attackers. Evolve Security’s PCI penetration testing not only verifies you have implemented and are maintaining security controls that meet standards of good practice (including the PCI-DSS), but provides documented proof that the controls were tested. Evolve Security is committed using our Darwin Attack® portal to enable near real-time communications, providing you with results as the test progresses. Evolve Security ensures you have details that enable you to conduct proactive remediation, reducing the exploitable vulnerabilities in your environment, enhancing your control and security, improving compliance, and reducing risk.
