Identify and address vulnerabilities in line with ISO 27001 requirements
Penetration testing is a crucial to achieving and maintaining a robust Information Security Management System (ISMS) that is compliant with ISO/IEC 27001. Objective A.12.6.1 of ISO 27001 states that information about technical security vulnerabilities should be obtained in a timely fashion and appropriate measures taken to address the associated risks.
ISO 27001 penetration testing from Redscan helps to satisfy the latest ISO requirements by providing the support and advice needed to develop and assess an ISMS and providing the support and advice need to ensure its continual improvement.
ISO 27001 pen testing
What is an ISO 27001 penetration test?
A penetration test is a type of security assessment designed to identify, exploit and help address cyber security vulnerabilities. ISO 27001 penetration tests are custom engagements tailored to meet requirements at any stage of an ISMS project, including the risk assessment, risk treatment and continual improvement stages.
Redscan’s CREST-approved penetration testing services are conducted by experienced security professionals that possess the technical expertise to identify and address vulnerabilities across systems, networks and applications. As part of all ISO pen testing engagements, our team will produce a written report that is tailored to ISO requirements and can be used to demonstrate compliance.

Types of ISO 27001 penetration testing
Whatever stage of the ISO 27001 ISMS project a penetration test is conducted, engagements can be aligned to the requirements that organisations deem most relevant to their risk landscape. Tests could include:
Types of penetration test
Network infrastructure testing
Redscan rigorously investigates your network to identify and exploit a wide range of security vulnerabilities. This enables us to establish if assets such as data can be compromised, classify the risks posed to your overall cyber security, prioritise vulnerabilities to be addressed, and recommend actions to mitigate risks identified.
Unsecured wireless networks can enable attackers to enter your network and steal valuable data. Wireless penetration testing identifies vulnerabilities, quantifies the damage these could cause and determines how they should be remediated.
Application and API security review
Vulnerabilities contained within software are commonly exploited by cybercriminals and are easily introduced by under-pressure programmers. Redscan’s ethical hackers conduct automated and manual penetration tests to assess backend application logic and software and API source code.
Remote working assessment
If your organisation is embracing mass remote working for the first time, it’s important to ensure that it is doing so securely. Ensure your networks, applications and devices are protected and fully secured with a custom remote working security assessment.
Web application security testing
Web applications play a vital role in business success and are an attractive target for cybercriminals. Redscan’s ethical hacking services include website and web app penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities including SQL injection and cross-site scripting problems plus flaws in application logic and session management flows.
People continue to be one of the weakest links in an organisation’s cyber security. Redscan’s social engineering pen test service includes a range of email phishing engagements designed to assess the ability of your systems and personnel to detect and respond to a simulated attack exercise.
Mobile security testing
Mobile app usage is on the rise, with more and more companies enabling customers to conveniently access their services via tablets and smartphones. Redscan carries out in-depth mobile application assessments based on the latest development frameworks and security testing tools.
Firewall configuration review
Firewall rule sets can quickly become outdated. Redscan’s penetration testers can detect unsafe configurations and recommend changes to optimise security and throughput.
