Security Testing White Paper
How do you keep your information system secure? You can do this by regularly having a security test performed on your information system. Such a test gives you additional assurance about the security of your system. The results of this test can be used to fix vulnerabilities. Aside from feeling responsible yourself, a reason for having a security test performed is compliance or because your customers request it. To help you, NCSC-NL has compiled the Security testing White Paper. This White Paper is a manual for commissioning parties. In four steps, this White Paper accompanies you through the process, so you can increase the security of your information system as much as possible.
- Determine your goal: Ask yourself the right questions to set an objective.
- Determine the means: Choose an appropriate test type and determine the scope and depth.
- Manage the execution: Select a contractor to perform the test and facilitate the testers.
- Implement improvements in your organisation: Make sure you apply the recommended improvements.
