Needs There are many ways to design and secure a wireless network. This global Pharma company was concerned that they might not have configured their network securely, such that an outsider might connect without credentials and they wouldn’t know about it.
Working for the CISO, our team performed a Wireless Penetration Test of their employee network to determine if an outsider could gain access. The first intrusion was achieved in under 30 minutes from the parking lot. Within the hour, we had also verified over 10 domain credentials and then continued to use them, for a further week, undetected by internal security. We delivered a detailed report of the risk and provided remediation actions that would prevent an attacker from performing the same attack.
At the end of the day
With our demonstration and external validation of the security risk, the organization was compelled to make the required changes. In addition, this led to further internal penetration testing that highlighted other vulnerabilities to address. We protected this business from the risk of potential compromise and exploitation of its valuable intellectual property, the loss of future revenue streams, and a damage to its reputation.
