IT Governance will perform a penetration test to identify and exploit vulnerabilities within your wireless network. This service provides for IT Governance to conduct a thorough reconnaissance of where a wireless signal can be received across your targeted locations by an attacker and a technical test (including those detailed within the OSSTMM (Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual)) of your wireless network.

This approach will emulate the techniques of an attacker, using many of the same readily available tools. This enables a full assessment of the key components of the wireless network and supporting infrastructure.

The identified vulnerabilities are presented in a format that allows an organisation to assess their relative business risk and the cost of remediation.

Your challenge

Employing a wireless solution can offer greater flexibility, but it comes with greater potential for attack by expanding your organisation’s logical perimeter. An insecure wireless network opens up your organisation to the external world and poses a security risk. From rogue access points to weak encryption algorithms, threats to wireless networks are unique and the risks can be significant.

Our service offering

  • A detailed consultation to identify the depth and breadth of the tests required, with careful scoping of the test environment to establish the exact extent of the testing exercise.
  • A range of manual tests conducted by our team of highly skilled penetration testers using a methodology closely aligned with the Open Source Security Testing Methodology (OSSTM).
  • A series of wireless surveys of the scoped environment, with automated and manual identification of vulnerabilities.
  • Immediate notification of any critical vulnerabilities in order for you to take action quickly.
  • A detailed technical report that details the identified vulnerabilities (ranked in order of significance).
  • A list of recommended countermeasures to address any identified vulnerabilities.
  • An executive summary that explains in business terms what the risks mean


  • Gain real-world insight into your vulnerabilities;
  • Detect default Wi-Fi routers;
  • Identify rogue or open access points;
  • Establish misconfigured or accidentally duplicated wireless networks;
  • Detect security vulnerabilities in Bluetooth technology; and
  • Identify insecure wireless encryption standards (such as WEP).

Service conditions
