CYBER 24 Episode 67: Penetration testing and vulnerability scans

CYBER24 season 2 logo

We’ve talked about what happens to a business when it becomes the victim of a cybersecurity incident. We’ve talked about the importance of having proper security in place. But how exactly are you supposed to know if your security is up to the task? And if there’s a vulnerability, how do you know the nature and extent of the problem? 

That’s where vulnerability scans and penetration testing come in handy. 

On this episode of CYBER24, we sit down with Greg Johnson, CEO of Webcheck, a company that specializes in penetration testing. We discuss the difference between penetration tests and vulnerability scans, what you can learn from each and how to determine the frequency with which you should perform these types of tests.
