Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking
Penetration Testing and Denial of Service are forms of a controlled attack against your business IT infrastructure.

The most effective way to check your security, is to actually have professionals attack it. This procedure is called Penetration Testing. It is a long procedure that works in many different levels, from espionage, bribery, brute force attack and hacking to social engineering.

When it comes to your website, the DoS (Denial of Service) is the way to see how much "offensive traffic" can your website withstand before crashing.  DoS is often used by hackers or cyber-activists to attack major corporations websites (i.e. Microsoft, IBM or NASA). DoS is also the preferred method of groups like Anonymous

Both methods are "controlled", which means that once we reach the desired level of intrusion or damage, we record it and automatically stop it, so that the day to day business activities are not affected.

A third approach is the use of Social Engineering, a method where we try to convince the victim to provide their login information. This method does not focus on the infrastructure, but on the human factor, and it identifies the weakest links in your staff, together with opportunities for improvement.


If you believe that your site or network has been the subject of a DoS attack, then Strathclyde Forensics can help you investigate, and provide you with a response plan if you are to suffer another attack, thus minimizing your losses and damages.
We provide Ethical Hacking for businesses, in order to help them identify their weakest points in their infrastructure's security.

Our penetration tester will always be an associate with Ethical Hacking certification, and you will be guided from the start, and through out the penetration testing.
