BlackHat is a method of penetration testing that we created. It is a simulation of a hacker attack against a company, which the hacker found for the attack and about which it has no additional information other than the identity of the company itself. The attacker’s target is usually some sensitive company data. Other goals may be to do damage to the company and/or its reputation, to misuse servers or to damage the computing power of the company (currently, for example, the extraction of cryptocurrencies).
The aim of the BlackHat test is, therefore, to identify the weakest vulnerabilities, to alert you to these deficiencies and to recommend a way to remedy them. This allows you to focus on the most important issues, to use your resources effectively and to significantly strengthen your security.
The vast majority of BlackHat tests are performed in the form of an external attack. But even the BlackHat test can be conceived as internal. In this case we perform an attack from the internal network of the organization and simulate, for example, the possibility of intrusion by external collaborators, or possibly by employees.
