With a physical penetration test, a Mystery Guest or unannounced visitor simply enters your company. Is this person addressed and asked who he is and what he will do? Our “Mystery Guest” service tests the security of your company and checks whether everyone complies with the agreements. As the person responsible for the security of your company you want to know whether the measures that have been taken and the investments made have actually been applied. Just think of the efficiency of the camera systems or the alertness of the reception and employees …
How does the Mystery Guest work?
With your approval we pretend to be someone else, for example an employee of a supplier and we try to physically penetrate into your company as far as possible. We also map all “data breaches” or security risks. This can vary from confidential information lying around unattended, such as “post-its” on computer screens with passwords or files left with the printer to access badges on the desks. All this confidential information is stolen by the “Mystery Guest” and you are kept informed of the findings by video footage.
What answers do you get?
- Are my employees alert? Do they recognise incidents on time and are the follow-up actions good?
- What information can someone steal inside?
- Do employees safely store sensitive information?
- Can an unauthorised employee, or an outsider, gain access to the location and its information flows?
- Can unauthorised locations easily penetrate and leave unnoticed?
- To what extent can “once inside” people (who are also external intruders) get hold of or influence sensitive information?
- Do employees (managers and lower staff) realise the value of information for the organisation?
Physical security is tested through physical penetration testing
Our physical penetration tests are performed under POB number. In addition to the required permits, all employees are in possession of a “Yellow Pass”. This pass is the official proof of identity of private investigators in the Netherlands and is issued by the Police Department Task Force department. We are also license holders of Security Management DHM (The Hague Methodology) through our employees.
