Penetration Testing

Wireless Security Testing

Wireless networks are a very common method to allow employees access to the internet, company networks and applications. They are also commonly offered to guests and visitors to a business. Since wireless networks can often be reached outside of the boundaries of the business, especially in shared offices, they can often introduce significant risks if not securely configured

Wireless Security Testing

Wireless testing is essential to ensure there is adequate protection in place to mitigate potential threats and a common requirement for regulatory certifications such as ISO27001.

Common risks include:

·            Default or guessable credentials

·            Weak segregation between networks

·            Weak encryption

·            Rogue access points

·            Little or no control over the devices that connect to the network

North star cyber security wireless security experts will work with you to identify exactly what areas would be of greatest benefit to analyse. Our consultants use the ISO27001 framework as a baseline to conduct testing to identify vulnerabilities and common insecure configurations.

What we do

Features

Features of this service

Slider Arrow LeftSlider Arrow Right

Identify insecure configured networks

Insecurely configured networks can lead to weak encryption and authentication vulnerabilities, allowing attackers to gather information and perform targeted attacks.

Demonstrate a strong security posture

Having regular tests of the network will help constantly increase the standard of security in an ever changing environment, giving your clients and third parties confidence in the level of protection

Segregation

Segregation of networks is essential for defence against attackers, by limiting the damage caused by attacks such as ransomware or viruses by limiting access.

Identify Rogue access points

Rogue access points are a common way for attackers to trick users and steal sensitive information

Lower cost

ISO 27001 is not mandatory for companies to have, however with the growing threat of cyber attacks, being inline with these best practises will reduce risk and exposure from attacks which would cause  large financial and reputational damage

Maintain trust

Being able to demonstrate that you take security seriously and undertake regular testing of your systems helps promote confidence for partners, suppliers and customers

Threat Modelling

Using all of the information gathered in the reconnaissance phase, North Star will determine where the potential risk of exploitation lies and create a plan to verify those findings

Exploitation

During this phase, and as agreed with the client in the pre-engagement phase North Star will attempt to exploit any vulnerabilities or misconfigurations identified in the previous phases to confirm that the risk exists

Post-Exploitation

Depending on the agreed approach for exploitation, North Star may also attempt to gain further access from the compromised host(s) further into the client’s network or attempt to obtain sensitive information

Reporting

As with all of North Star services, we will provide detailed expert advice in our report to help align your infrastructure with industry best practice security standards
