What is SCADA / ICS Penetration Testing?

SCADA / ICS penetration testing is a type of assessment designed to identify and fix vulnerabilities in industrial systems or devices that could be exploited by an attacker by simulating the same techniques used by hackers. These control systems represent the nervous system of today’s supply chain and their increasing complexity comes with a new set of cybersecurity risks. Our services allow you to determine how your industrial networks and devices could be hacked, providing actionable and tailored recommendations to secure your installations from cyberattacks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Penetration testing is essential to any business, but it remains a complex subject and choosing the right provider can be challenging. The following FAQ answers the most frequently asked questions to help you make an informed decision. Couldn’t find your answer? Ask an expert for free.

Penetration tests can be performed to meet various objectives. Meeting regulatory requirements (PCI, SOC2, etc.) and securing systems from cyberattacks following recent changes are among the most common use cases of pentesting.

The cost of a penetration test varies significantly according to a number of factors. For this reason, there is no established price range for this type of assessment. Each project is tailored to your objectives and your environment. To find out how much your penetration test would cost, reach out to our specialists to get a free quote.

Manual penetration tests and fully automated scanners are the most common techniques to identify and fix cybersecurity vulnerabilities within your technologies. While many similarities exist between the two, they are often misinterpreted as the same thing, although they yield very different results.

Every professional in the industry agrees that cyber risks cannot be sufficiently mitigated by relying on automated scans alone. It can be a great starting point for those who lack the resources to undergo frequent manual tests, but should not be your only resort to test your cybersecurity.

Upon completion of the test, your company receives a report detailing all of the findings. This document is broken down in several sections that are relevant for various stakeholders. A professional penetration testing report should always present the following items:

  • An executive summary that outlines the findings in a clear and concise language. This section should be easily understood by your non-technical staff and acts as a key component of your risk management strategy.
  • Vulnerability listing prioritized by risk level. 
  • Technical details of the identified vulnerabilities including their potential impact if exploited and supporting evidence (screenshots, HTTP requests, etc.).
  • Actionable recommendations to fix each identified vulnerability.
  • External references to facilitate the implementation of the recommended corrective measures.
