Introducing the Top 5 Penetration Test Findings of 2022 Report!

Lares® encounters a seemingly endless number of vulnerabilities and attack vectors when we conduct a penetration test or red team engagement, regardless of organization size or maturity. Though not every engagement is identical, we have analyzed the similarities between hundreds of engagements throughout 2022, and the following list represents the most frequently observed penetration test findings we encountered. It should be noted that the Top 5 discussed within this paper does not pretend to emphasize the findings as being the most severe, but rather, the most frequently encountered during engagements for the period. We hope you enjoy the report, and please reach out via email,, or phone at (720) 600-0329 should you have any additional questions, comments, or concerns.


Please use the following form to download the Top 5 Penetration Test Findings Report. Your copy of the report will be mailed to you.


Join Lares' Managing Director of Security Services, Mike Guthrie, on Thursday, January 26th at 1 pm EST as he provides additional details around the report findings and how to prevent or mitigate them ahead of your next penetration test.
