If you're in the business of running a company, you're aware of how important it is to protect your data assets from being hacked by the so-called "black hackers". They don't think twice about taking the network down, altering your website, or gaining access to your network's internal networks to disrupt your computers.
The answer to this issue can be found in penetration tests, also referred to as ethical hacking. Companies contract with "pen testers" to conduct their very best to target the company in the same manner as criminals might, but doing their best to avoid causing harm. You can also get more information about automatic penetration testing (pruebas de penetración automática in the Spanish language) via symbiolab.ai/penetration-testing/.

A way to look at penetration testing is this way. If you go to the bar at 2 in the morning, and you leave your keys on the doorstep it is a security risk. A vulnerability scan will detect this and provide advice to your wife such as "Remove his keys, however, you'll need to be up by 2 in the early morning to let them in", "Install a swipe card system" or "Kick off the home!"
The benefit of employing an actual penetration tester instead of an automated tool is that the ethical hacker will be more likely to identify the real business-related threats to your data assets.
