Why Penetration Testing in Indonesia?

Two years ago, in 2018, the Government of Indonesia entered into an agreement with the U.S. on promoting strong cyberspace cooperation. Now to mention, the commitment embodies both the countries to boost cooperation in cyberspace as previously agreed. Even though there are many steps taken by the government, the country is not ready to defend and stay safe from cyberattacks, especially during the pandemic crises.

The government had failed to anticipate cybersecurity risks and people’s reliance on technology to work remotely during the COVID-19 outbreak, Unggul Sagena quoted from Digital Rights Group, the Southeast Asia Freedom of Expression Network (SAFEnet).

The lack of security standards has scrambled finding of video-conferencing platforms to continue safe operations. It is the lack of personal data protection law not deliberated by the House of Representatives.

What is Meant by Penetration Testing?

Penetration Testing is a technique to protect your organization against external and internal threats by identifying security threats. It is an on-demand activity and EGS offers a broad range of network infrastructure, web application, mobile application security assessment services designed to detect and gauge security vulnerabilities.

How is penetration testing done?

Penetration testing is a process of intruding organization’s networks with an intention to find vulnerabilities and malicious content. It must be remembered that penetration testing is performed within a defined scope. In reality, it strengthens and defends the organization’s IT infrastructure. Likewise, it determines how vulnerable the cyberspace to the attacks. Another key point, the process of penetration testing involves a lot of planning. Hence, it is performed after taking permission from the management.

What are the different types of penetration testing?

The types of penetration testing vary with the scope and organizational wants and requirements.

Common Types Of Penetration Testing

Intelligence-led Red TeamingCloud Penetration TestingWeb Application TestingMobile Penetration TestingIoT Penetration Testing Social Engineering Application Layer Testing

Intelligence-led Red Teaming

An intelligence-led red team conducts testing back doors to simulates different scenarios of testing. It includes social engineering, physical security testing, hacking, malware insertion, pivoting, and more.

Cloud Penetration Testing

It assesses the security of your cloud storage concerning its Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Software as a Service (SaaS), or Platform as a Service (PaaS). 

Web Application Testing

Web app testing goes through various stages of enumeration, vulnerability exploitation, and identifying risks to your networks.

Mobile Penetration Testing

The process involves testing of design, data handling, authentication, and network communication.

IoT Penetration Testing

The number of IoT devices to the network is tested and protected.

Social Engineering

This is not related to technology; rather, it helps increase the security posture and reduce insider threats. 

Application Layer Testing

Each role in applications like mobile, desktop, web-application, etc is tested against various testing guides.

Broadly, Penetration Testing
Can Be Classified Into Two Categories

Internal Penetration Testing
An internal penetration test involves gaining access to sensitive information. Specifically, it is a process where the network is intruded from within the organization’s systems and firewalls.
External Penetration Testing 
An external penetration test represents intruding the process from outside of the organization’s firewall. Indeed, this effort is a defense strategy to protect against external cyber attackers.

What is The Best Penetration Testing Tool?

It is difficult to decipher which is the best penetration testing tool. A skilled penetration tester uses a combination of penetration testing tools and not just one or two. As a matter of fact, various penetration testing tools are required to penetrate and test different verticals on the IT landscape. Significantly, few of the standard penetration testing tools are – Nmap (or the Network Mapper), Wireshark, Metasploit, and Nessus Vulnerability Scanner.

Additionally, EGS uses various other penetration testing tools. Following are the few of the main penetration testing tools used by our experts during onsite penetration testing in Indonesia or remote services.

Acunetix, Burp Suite Drozer Mobsf
Exploit kit OWASP ZAP Metasploit

How often should a penetration test be done?

Though the frequency of penetration testing varies from one organization to another. Many factors like size, business type, geographical location, etc. decide how often a penetration test be done.

If you are considering penetration testing in Indonesia here are the few factors to consider before conducting your next penetration test –

When there is a change in organization structure

When exposed to major threats or changes in the industry

To meet with compliances

Various factors like changes in staff members, diversion in the business line, adaptability to new and advanced technology, etc. creates new risks to the security infrastructure. Consequently, performing penetration testing will ensure that your technology should mark with the changes. It is also important to initiate cybersecurity training for employees on the latest security standards. As a result, negligence attacks like social engineering, and other negligence-based attacks can be avoided. Cybersecurity is ever-evolving and therefore, cybercriminals constantly attempt to creating new approaches to exploit vulnerabilities. For instance, breaches or new threat actors expose your vulnerabilities, and therefore, a penetration test is a must. Hence, penetration testing is crucial with a change in the environment. First thing to remember is that organizations have to comply with the regulations of PCI DSS, HIPAA, etc. Hence, penetration tests should be carried out regularly, as defined by the acts.

How Much Does a Penetration Test Cost?

The cost of penetration testing in Indonesia is not fixed and is influenced by many factors. Henceforth, the cost of penetration testing in Indonesia varies with
  • The skill of a penetration tester. Therefore, a certified and experienced penetration tester costs more than a fresher.
  • The size and complexity of the IT landscape and network devices.
