SWIFT System Pentesting

SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication) is a global financial messaging network that enables financial institutions to securely exchange electronic messages and financial transactions. SWIFT System Pentesting is a cybersecurity service that evaluates the security of SWIFT systems and applications to identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access, steal sensitive data, or cause damage to the network. Rbtsec offers SWIFT System Pentesting services, where our team of experienced security professionals uses various tools and techniques to simulate attacks and identify vulnerabilities in a controlled manner to ensure the security of their SWIFT systems and protect against potential cyber threats.

Our Methodology

Swift system penetration testing is a cybersecurity assessment that evaluates the security of a financial institution’s Swift messaging infrastructure. Rbtsec follows a methodology that combines the Swift Customer Security Controls Framework (CSCF) and PCI DSS requirements to ensure a comprehensive assessment. Our SWIFT System Pentesting service adheres to industry-standard frameworks such as NIST, ISO 27001, OWASP TOP 10, CWE TP 25 and PCI DSS.

At RBT Security, we understand that each financial institution’s Swift messaging infrastructure is unique, and therefore, requires a customized approach to the penetration testing service. Our approach ensures that the client receives a comprehensive assessment of the Swift messaging infrastructure that is aligned with the Swift CSCF and PCI DSS requirements. We use our technical expertise to identify vulnerabilities and provide recommendations for remediation to enhance the security posture of the Swift messaging infrastructure.

Our Approach

We conduct a vulnerability assessment of the Swift messaging infrastructure components, including the servers, operating systems, middleware, and applications, using industry-standard scanning tools.
Penetration Testing
We attempt to exploit the identified vulnerabilities through various attack vectors to assess the severity of the vulnerabilities and identify additional ones that may have been missed during scanning.
Social Engineering Testing
We conduct simulated attacks on the personnel who have access to the Swift messaging infrastructure, such as phishing attacks, to identify vulnerabilities in the human element of the security.
Authentication and Access Control Testing
We review and test the authentication and access control mechanisms of the Swift messaging infrastructure, including password policies, access controls, and session management.
Data Protection Testing
We review and test the data protection measures of the Swift messaging infrastructure, including encryption, hashing, and masking.
We provide a detailed report that includes the vulnerabilities discovered, their impact, and recommendations for remediation. The report is tailored to the client's specific requirements and can include executive summaries, technical details, and actionable recommendations.
