Einstein famously said: “In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.”.
This is especially true in cybersecurity. We see vulnerability management tools that try to score vulnerabilities and apply algorithms that will “predict” the likelihood of them being exploited.
That’s all just theory.
The only way to know for sure the integrity of your defenses against cyber attacks is to subject them to a pragmatic test. That means emulating cyber attacks identical to the true threats and seeing the outcome.
Automated Penetration Testing is the way to know your cybersecurity’s true state.
This isn’t a theory. It’s practice.
