If the pen test is not properly planned and coordinated, it can be disruptive. This is why it is imperative that the planning is done properly, and comprehensively, to identify potential risks for disruption and adjust the approach accordingly. This planning should be conducted well in advance of any testing start date in order to ensure adequate time for communication to project stakeholders. The communication and monitoring should continue throughout the pen testing schedule.
“…the PEN test went well, and business was not affected by it, which is very important during our busy season.”
