As a professional penetration tester and a business owner I am often asked, "Why should I pay you to break into my network? In fact, there are probably as many reasons for performing a penetration test as there are for NOT performing a penetration test. This article will explain what is penetration testing  and give some reasons for and against performing such tests. This article will also describe some of the issues involved in deciding whether or not to perform penetration testing using internal staff or whether you should outsource the testing to a security vendor . Penetration testing will also be discussed from an IT Security and Privacy perspective. As a security professional I feel I have an obligation to my clients to try and persuade them to perform periodic testing from both an internal and external perspective. I use the term "persuade" because often times it comes down to a passionate discussion about the risks and rewards of performing such tests.
