Security Audit of People’s HR System
We recently had our HR system penetration tested, and thought you might be interested to know the results.
What is a ‘Penetration Test’?
Penetration testing is the term given to a series of security checks that test a system’s ability to withstand attempted cyber-attacks like hacks and data thefts.
With a business like ours, where our clients rely on us to protect their confidential employee information, ensuring top notch security is an absolute priority.
Who Tested Us
We had our HR system tested by Pen Test Partners – a penetration testing company approved by the Council of Registered Ethical Security Testers.
What They Did
Pen Test Partners tested our web application using testing methodology in-line with best practices from the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP)
How We Scored
People was given the green light, and categorised into the best possible bracket: ‘Low Risk’. The company conducting the audit stated:
“The application was seen to be well coded”
They also stated in their report:
“The web application was seen to be well secured and crucially at no point could the consultant gain access to any other company’s data, or gain access to other users’ accounts”
In a nutshell, this means that when the cyber-attack experts carrying out the audit attempted to break into People’s HR system, they were unable to, and all customer data remained safely under lock and key.
