Penetration Tester (Pentester)

An information security expert who performs penetration tests. During the simulated attack on the target computer system, the pentester:

  • Collects information about the object
  • Searches for entry points
  • Gains access to the system
  • Maintains a presence in the system
  • Removes traces of hacking

The result is a penetration report containing a list of vulnerabilities, sometimes with measures to eliminate them.
