Edit on GitHub

This document describes the aspects to consider while preparing and conducting a penetration test.

General considerations

Penetration tests are an integral part of improving the security of your application. We strongly encourage our customers and partners to conduct penetration tests, especially during go-live preparations and after major updates or project milestones.

Preparation for a penetration test

Let us know about your plans to run a penetration test by reaching out to and by completing the Penetration Test Request Form. Make sure to provide at least a seven working days’ notice. Take into account the AWS Penetration Testing Policy, which outlines prohibited activities.
