Penetration Testing for Financial Services

Not all pen tests are created equal. CYBRI provides manual penetration testing services to uncover vulnerabilities across the broad attack surfaces of critical financial and banking infrastructures — before the hackers do.

Not all pen tests are created equal. CYBRI provides manual penetration testing services to uncover vulnerabilities across the broad attack surfaces of critical financial and banking infrastructures — before the hackers do.


According to a recent report from Bitglass, the financial services industry contributed 62 percent of leaked records during 2019, with an average cost of $210 per breached record. The price for mega breaches (affecting 100M or more), such as Capital One, is much higher at $388 per record.


The financial sector encompasses a wide range of industries. Banks, credit unions, credit and payment processing companies, insurance firms, investment companies, and real estate companies are all vulnerable to malicious cyberattacks.


CYBRI penetration testing moves beyond the constraints of automated scanning. Our Red Team provides real-world attacks against your infrastructure from the perspective of an adversary.

Pen testing reveals weak infrastructure spots and identifies exploitable vulnerabilities within financial services. Testing defense structures in a manually-intensive, structured, and controlled way can uncover hidden cyber risks.

The Challenges Faced by the Financial Industry

Potential Impacts in the financial industry:


  • Financial service downtime
  • Operational losses
  • Compliance and PCI fines
  • Reputation, customer trust, and brand Impacts
  • Data breach legal fees and lawsuits

Methodologies & Scope

In complex financial environments, it is crucial to understand which areas to test in order to receive meaningful results. Once all areas for testing within the network are determined, the scope becomes clearly defined.


The next phase examines the needs of the organization through a vulnerability assessment, where we map the threat landscape.


Once the mapping of the threat landscape is complete, our Red Team experts examine the organization’s critical assets for configuration flaws and exploitable vulnerabilities. They identify potential weaknesses within the financial network.


Throughout the testing phase, clients have access to all discoveries and can ask questions at any time. After the completion of the testing, there is a question and answer session to help the internal financial team understand and mitigate all discovered vulnerabilities.
