Physical Penetration Testing How Secure Is Your Business?

Physical Penetration Testing is a great way to test the current security processes and protocols that your company employs and to test the compliance of your staff. We’re experiencing that with the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25th May 2018 there has been an increase in demand for this service. It’s an ideal opportunity to test whether the data you hold is safe or easily accessible to potential intruders. The fines for non-compliance are expected to be vastly increased from any previous penalties and no doubt an example will be made of companies initially to send out a stark message to others who are non-compliant.

Titan Private Investigation’s penetration testing operatives are all former government operators with backgrounds as Counter Terrorism Security Advisors (CTSA’s) and Crime Prevention Officers (CPO’s) and fully insured to conduct this vital service. We will not only test your current security protocols by attempting to gain entry into your premises, but we will deliver a comprehensive report outlining recommendations for implementation.

Passive Reconnaissance
This is the initial phase of any penetration by using tools such as Google Earth to learn about the environment and surroundings of the target premise.

Open Source Intelligence

This is the intelligence gathering stage, collecting data through social media, notice boards and registers.

Active Reconnaissance
This phase is aimed at gathering further intelligence which isn’t available online. It may include sending emails, making telephone enquiries and directly approaching staff.

Covert Observation
Observations are key, it identifies discrepancies in the environment gathered at the passive reconnaissance phase, identifies current security barriers such as CCTV, barriers, ID cards and entry methods.

Attack Planning
Once the information has been gathered our operatives plan the penetration which will include contingencies and cover stories.

This involves finalising the attack plan and ensuring the team’s equipment, transportation and kit are ready to deploy.

Post Exploitation
