Security Testing Services

We offer a comprehensive approach to security testing beyond penetration testing to promptly identify and eliminate security vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure or applications.


1Cyber security testing team can help you get a deep insight into your IT environment cybersecurity state and provide with specific recommendations to strengthen the protection of your IT infrastructure or its components.


1Cyber strongly recommends checking the security of your network, applications, and the other parts of your IT infrastructure regularly (monthly, quarterly, or at least annually depending on your particular needs) to get the following benefits:

  • You get up-to-date information on the security vulnerabilities existing within your IT environment.
  • You stay aware of any new vulnerabilities occurring in the result of the addition, changing, or removal of your IT environment components and modification of end-user policies.
  • You maintain the compliance with the requirements of security regulations and standards (HIPAA, PCI DSS, etc.).

Purpose of Security Testing?

Security testing is a sort of software testing that identifies vulnerabilities, hazards, and dangers in a software program and guards against intruder assaults. The goal of security tests is to find any potential flaws and vulnerabilities in the software system that might lead to a loss of data, income, or reputation at the hands of workers or outsiders.

Benefits of Security Testing?

The basic purpose of security testing is to find and assess possible vulnerabilities in a system so that attacks may be faced and the system does not cease working or be exploited. It also aids in the detection of any potential security vulnerabilities in the system, as well as assisting developers in the resolution of issues via code.

Security Testing Types

According to the Open Source Security Testing methodology document, there are seven basic forms of security testing.


The following are the explanations

  • Vulnerability Scanning − This is done by scanning a system against known vulnerability signatures using automated tools.

  • Security Scanning − entails discovering network and system flaws and then proposing remedies to mitigate the risks. This scanning may be done in two ways − manually and automatically.

  • Penetration testing − This kind of testing replicates a hostile hacker’s attack. This testing entails examining a specific system for possible vulnerabilities in the event of an external hacking attempt.

  • Risk Assessment − This kind of testing entails analyzing the security threats that have been identified in the company. There are three levels of risk: low, medium, and high. This testing suggests risk-reduction controls and procedures.

  • Security Auditing − This is an internal check for security issues in applications and operating systems. A line-by-line examination of code may also be used to conduct an audit.

  • Hacking an organization’s software systems is referred to as ethical hacking. Unlike criminal hackers who steal for personal benefit, the goal is to uncover system security problems.

  • Security scanning, ethical hacking, and risk assessments are combined in a posture assessment to reveal an organization’s overall security posture.

How to Test for Security

It is universally acknowledged that deferring security testing until after the software implementation process or after deployment would increase costs. As a result, security testing must be included early in the SDLC life cycle.


Let’s have a look at the security procedures that should be used for each step of the SDLC.

SDLC PhasesSecurity Processes
RequirementsCheck for abuse/misuse incidents and do a security analysis.
DesignFor designing, do a security risk analysis. Creating a test plan that includes security tests

Examples of Security Testing Scenarios

Sample test scenarios to give you an idea of the kind of security tests that are available −

  • A password must be stored in an encrypted way.

  • Invalid users should not be allowed to access the application or system.

  • For application, check cookies and session time.

  • The browser back button should not operate on financial sites.

Roles in Security Testing

  • Hackers − Unauthorized access to a computer system or network

  • Crackers − Infiltrate computer systems in order to steal or destroy data.

  • Ethical Hacker − Performs the majority of the breaking actions with the owner’s approval.

  • Script kids or packet monkeys are inexperienced hackers who know how to program.
