Choosing a pentest supplier can present a risk in itself. In our Buyer’s Guide for Penetration Testing, we help you to navigate your way across the potentially choppy waters and advise on:

  • What credentials to look for – and how to check them
  • The Penetration Test Report; ensuring it meets your needs
  • What costs to expect
  • What are you actually buying? A Pen Test or a Vulnerability Scan?
  • Are you paying for the brand?
  • Other key considerations: ethics, communication, testimonials 

The guide includes a template to help you ask the right questions, record your answers and compare providers. It was written by Perspective Risk’s Pravesh Kara, a highly qualified and respected figure in the infosec industry.
