We conducted a number of penetration testing engagements across Europe for a client with a wide geographic footprint in support of their insurance placement and a wider strategic improvement process around security. Our consultants individually conducted covert surveillance of each location, all of which had extremely high public footfall, and identified areas of improvement for the security team. Our operatives also attempted to gain access to private back of house areas, and conducted ‘left baggage checks’ to assess how quickly and effectively security teams reacted. The findings were subsequently briefed to their global executive management.
Outcomes for the client
- Received targeted feedback on their security teams from the perspective of a potential attacker
- Gained an assessment of how effective current suspicious package processes were, as well as response times
- Executive reassurance that risk was being managed across their property portfolio
