International Post Corporation (IPC)


International Post Corporation (IPC) is the leading service provider of the global postal industry. IPC operates across Asia Pacific, Europe and North America and its members include An Post, Deutsche Post-DHL and the United States Postal Service. It delivers solutions and services to over 190 posts worldwide. Founded in 1989 and headquartered in Brussels, IPC has developed technological solutions that enhance service for international letters, packets and parcels. More recently, IPC has played a key role throughout the COVID-19 crisis and enabled the continuity of cross-border mail flows.

The Penetration Testing Challenge  

IPC was keen to put their defences to the test and enlisted Stryve to carry out a penetration test on their network. Although the organisation did not approach Stryve with concerns about its security posture, it wanted to verify that its systems could withstand scrutiny. It was important to IPC that any issue, no matter how minor, could be quickly identified and rectified. Regular penetration testing is a key part of a healthy security management system.

The Penetration Testing Solution  

Before beginning the penetration test, Stryve worked closely with IPC to understand both its needs and expectations. Moreover, the scope of the penetration test was defined before Stryve got to work. Following several days of testing, Stryve produced a report which set out our findings. This detailed report categorises risks against well-defined low, medium and high risks, and was easily readable by IT staff and C-suite alike. Moreover, it offers a detailed breakdown any risks and how best to rectify them.
