What type of security testing is best?

Combining manual and automated testing methods is a highly effective approach to maintaining robust security across your applications and systems. Here’s how each type contributes to a comprehensive security testing strategy:

  1. Automated Security Testing:
    • Broad Coverage: Automated tools, such as security scanners and static/dynamic analysis tools, are excellent for quickly covering large codebases and identifying common vulnerabilities like SQL injection, cross-site scripting, or security misconfigurations.
    • Speed and Efficiency: These tools can run tests much faster than human testers and can be integrated into your CI/CD pipeline, enabling regular and consistent testing throughout the development lifecycle.
    • Cost-Effectiveness: Automated testing reduces the manpower required for routine checks, making it a cost-effective solution for regular assessments.
  2. Manual Security Testing:
    • Deep Dive Analysis: Manual testing is essential for complex security challenges where contextual understanding and expertise are required, such as business logic flaws or advanced privilege escalation issues.
    • Verification of Automated Findings: Not all vulnerabilities detected by automated tools are true positives. Manual testing helps verify these findings, assess their impact, and determine the necessary remediation steps.
    • Exploratory Testing: Manual testers can explore beyond predefined test cases, identifying issues that automated tools might miss, especially in complex user interaction scenarios or in areas with custom implementations.
  3. Integrating Both Approaches:
    • Start with automated testing to quickly scan and identify obvious vulnerabilities.
    • Use manual testing to delve deeper into critical areas, verify automated findings, and explore aspects of the application that require nuanced judgment.
    • Ensure that both testing methods are aligned and inform each other, with insights from manual testing feeding back into improving automated tests and vice versa.

This layered testing approach ensures that your security testing is both comprehensive and efficient, leveraging the speed of automation and the depth of manual expertise. It's particularly effective in environments like yours, where security and compliance are critical to the operation and reputation of the business.

Should we test in our development or production environment?

Testing both development and production environments is crucial, but they serve different purposes:

  1. Development Environment: Testing in the development or staging environment allows you to catch and fix vulnerabilities early in the development cycle. This environment is where most of the aggressive testing should happen, including automated scans and penetration testing. It’s safer to test here because it doesn’t affect your live data or service availability.
  2. Production Environment: While it’s riskier, testing in the production environment is also essential because it’s the only way to ensure that your security measures work under real-world conditions. However, this should be done carefully to avoid any disruption to services or data breaches. Typically, production testing is more controlled and may focus on less invasive tests unless there is a high degree of confidence in the robustness of the systems.
  3. Gradual Increase in Production Testing: As you suggested, starting with thorough testing in development and gradually increasing the scope of testing in production is a prudent approach. This ensures that the majority of potential issues are resolved before reaching production, while also verifying that the security controls perform as expected in the live environment.
  4. Tailored Approach: Depending on the specifics of your systems and business, the balance between development and production testing can vary. High-risk environments might require more frequent and rigorous testing in both areas.

Since every organization’s risk tolerance and operational requirements differ, discussing these strategies in detail on a call would allow for a more customized approach that aligns with your specific needs and risk management policies.

How often should we test our systems?

For businesses, especially those in high-risk or rapidly changing industries like finance and technology, the frequency of system testing should be tailored to the organization's risk profile and the sensitivity of the data involved. Here are a few guidelines:

  1. Annual Testing: At a minimum, perform comprehensive system testing annually. This helps ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards.
  2. After Significant Changes: Any major update, such as new system implementations, upgrades, or integrations, should be followed by thorough testing to ensure that no new vulnerabilities have been introduced.
  3. Continuous Testing: The most robust approach is continuous testing, where systems are constantly evaluated as part of the development process. This includes integrating automated security testing tools into the software development lifecycle, enabling early detection of vulnerabilities.
  4. Periodic Reviews: Apart from scheduled annual testing, it's beneficial to conduct periodic security assessments and reviews. Depending on the nature of your business, this could be quarterly or bi-annually.

This multi-layered approach ensures that your systems remain secure over time and adapt to new threats as they emerge. For businesses like yours, focusing on fintech and SaaS, staying ahead with proactive and continuous testing is particularly crucial given the high stakes involved with financial data and cloud-based services.
