Penetration Testing of HHS and Operating Division Networks

Penetration tests are used to identify methods of gaining access to a system by using tools and techniques known to be employed by hackers. Computer hacker groups are increasingly active in attempts to compromise government systems, release sensitive data to the public, or use such data to commit fraud. We will conduct network and web application penetration testing to determine HHS's and its operating divisions' network security posture and determine whether these networks and applications are susceptible to hackers.
