Avoid Compliance Nightmares: Pen Testing for GDPR, PCI DSS, and ISO 27001

Penetration testing is a critical component in complying with regulatory standards such as GDPR, PCI DSS, and ISO 27001. At Unity Metrix, our testing protocols are designed to address the specific requirements of these regulations:


Helps ensure that personal data is protected against unauthorised access by identifying security weaknesses. Meeting the brief of Article 32 in “testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures” 


Assesses the security of cardholder data by testing the network and application layers as per PCI DSS Requirement 11.4 “External and internal penetration testing is regularly performed, and exploitable vulnerabilities and security weaknesses are corrected.”

ISO 27001

Supports the establishment of an effective information security management system by identifying vulnerabilities and security gaps.  ISO27001 12.6.1 states that exposure to vulnerabilities should be evaluated, and appropriate measures taken to address the associated risk

Regular penetration testing not only helps avoid the financial penalties associated with non-compliance but also enhances your company’s security posture, building trust with clients and stakeholders.
