Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing encompasses a variety of tests. Experts aim to identify as many cybersecurity weaknesses as possible in a system and/or exploit vulnerabilities fully to understand the depth as well as breadth of the risk.
Data is the currency of our age, and protecting it is vital. For companies, it is also often compulsory and subject to stringent regulation. Risks to businesses’ cybersecurity occur through weaknesses in the access layers of applications that contain business logic and security functions. It is thus necessary to assess security measures and test their effectiveness.
Bureau Veritas’ methodology for vulnerability assessment and penetration testing (VAPT) uses tooling and phases, including reconnaissance, threat assessment, vulnerability assessment and vulnerability scanning. With these methods and tools, we obtain a complete and accurate report on businesses’ security levels, including extensive risk analysis and strategic, tactical and operational recommendations.

Vulnerability Assessment / Penetration Testing
VAPT is a particularly valuable service as it can assess the number and variety of risks to an organization, as well as the extent and gravity of each potential problem.
Crystal, gray and black box security tests
Crystal, gray and black box security tests differ in the amount of information consultants have in advance. In crystal box tests, they have prior access to all relevant information, while in gray box tests, they have credentials and user documentation. In both cases, they assess how a registered user could abuse the IT environment. With a black box test, consultants have little or no information, making this most similar to an attack by external digital intruders.
During a penetration test, consultants look for cybersecurity weak spots and attempt to exploit them in order to demonstrate the seriousness and consequences of a certain issue.
