​Our expertise in penetration testing services for regulatory compliance includes pen testing for the following laws, regulations, and other industry specific mandates:

Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards
(PCI DSS):

The scope of a penetration test, as defined in PCI DSS Requirement 11.3, includes the entire CDE perimeter and any critical systems. This applies both to the external perimeter (public-facing attack surfaces) and the internal perimeter of the CDE (LAN-LAN attack surfaces). The scope of testing may include locations of cardholder data, applications that store, process, or transmit cardholder data, critical network connections, access points, and other targets appropriate for the complexity and size of the organization. This should include resources and assets utilized by personnel to maintain systems in the CDE, or to access cardholder data, as the compromise of such assets could allow an attacker to obtain credentials with access to or a route into the CDE.

Health Information Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) & Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act:

As part of the required HIPAA Security Rule risk analysis, covered entities are required to evaluate risks & vulnerabilities in their environments, and to implement security controls to address those risks & vulnerabilities. As such, penetration testing is just one of the many measures for which covered entities should use for addressing such risks and vulnerabilities. In fact, as early as 2008, the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) was recommending penetration testing to satisfy HIPAA’s requirements. NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-66, which guides HIPAA implementation, names penetration testing as a critical measure for achieving HIPAA Security Rule protections.

Data Privacy:  

A slew of data privacy laws are now in place, and while they may not say prescriptively that a penetration test is required, compliance with such laws should include performing such a test for assurances.  From the GDPR to CCPA/CPRA, and countless other state and international laws – performing penetration testing for ensuring the safety and security of your data – and your customers’ data – is essential.

Federal Compliance (NIST RMF):

The U.S. government’s adoption and implementation of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Risk Management Framework (RMF) has huge implications for federal contractors.  From FISMA to FedRAMP – and more – federal contractors are being inundated with compliance regulations, with many provisions actually stating that a penetration test is a requirement. Specifically, NIST SP 800-53, the bedrock of the federal government’s information security and data privacy framework – actually discusses penetration testing in detail.

Financial Services:

The financial services sector comprises banking, mortgages, credit cards, payment services, tax preparation and planning, accounting, and investing. Financial services are often limited to the activity of firms and professionals, while financial products are the financial instruments these professionals provide to their clients.  Penetration testing in the financial services sector is commonplace in today’s business arena.
