  • Modes of Ethical Hacking - Physical Entry

    Physical Entry is often considered a small part of a penetration test and it is very overlooked. Some times the physical perimeter is not a consideration at all. The big issue today is that if the target organization has implemented updated and secure systems it may not be possible or feasible to attack using the Internet. Organizations forget to consider the risk of theft.

    How many firewalls, IDS systems and ACLs does the attacker have to penetrate or bypass, if he can just enter the organization office through an open window and steal a laptop, a backup tape or walk around and collect passwords on post-its all around the building? None!
