Cyberattacks, or hacks, are an omnipresent and ever-increasing threat to our IT systems. Due to the increasing connectivity (“Internet of Things”) the targets of such attacks can be manifold, from computers and servers over cars and small IoT devices to complete networks. In order to reduce the risk it is essential for manufacturers of such systems to find (and fix) potential vulnerabilities in their systems before others do. This is where security testing comes into play.
The goal of security testing is to find security flaws or vulnerabilities – with the permission of the owner. The main goal of security testing is not to damage the system, but to analyze the potential for unauthorized parties to gain access to the system's features and data and thereby reduce the subsequent risk for the operators and, ultimately, also the consumers.
In this webinar, we share with you our experiences in security testing. We discuss different security testing methods, elaborate on which components of a system should be tested and explain the benefits of whitebox testing.
