Regulation S-P recommends that a firm tests their cyber security controls, at least annually. Testing should be designed to assess and analyze internal and external threats so that controls can be updated to meet the needs an ever evolving data security system. Using a third-party testing provider eliminates bias in the current design and maintenance of controls and infrastructure yielding a truly independent view of your security risks.
