Compromise Assessment

overview

Overview

A compromise assessment is a penetration test focused on identifying if undetected threat actors are currently or have ever been in your network. Testing includes both automated and manual inspection conducted across firewalls, endpoints, and servers to ensure a thorough examination of your IT infrastructure systems and applications. Our ethical hackers uncover threats like zero day malware, trojans, ransomware, and other anomolies that may go undetected in standard automated vulnerability scans.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Ransomware is deployed in my environment, do I need a Compromise Assessment?

    A Compromise Assessment is a service to identify past/present compromises. It is a validation exercise to identify whether you have been breached and includes high-level testing across security controls to identify the likelihood of a breach. If you have been breached, it is our recommendation to trigger your Incident Response process and invoke your Breach Response, potentially with the support of a third-party vendor with forensic capabilities.

    A Compromise Assessment can be an add-on to your annual penetration test and is often part of due diligence exercises during any M&A activity. Packetlabs recommends completing a Compromise Assessment before integrating networks with an acquired entity.
