IT Technical Assessment

DST’s information technology (IT) technical assessment service offers penetration testing, code review, red teaming, and other adversarial testing capabilities for IT devices. 

This service is designed to technically assess the security posture of an information technology service, application, or device using adversarial testing techniques. This service works with units to develop a scope of testing, conduct a technical assessment, and report assessment results. This assessment can take the form of traditional penetration tests, secure code reviews, or general attack surface evaluations for the purposes of general security or compliance requirements. 

Units can utilize this service to: 

  • Request a technical security assessment (penetration test) of a new or existing service, application, or device 

  • Request an evaluation of the security of a university-developed application not covered by other vulnerability assessment tools 

  • Request an attack surface evaluation of a large system (e.g., an entire unit’s information system)
