They are arranged according to risk ranking.   Operating Systems: Very high risk because of the potential for system vulnerabilities due to insecure patching and misconfiguration. (Gramer and Hudson 2017, 2017).  2) Networks – Moderate to High Risk because of the possibility for traffic routing and risky access (Fang Koo, Lee, 2019).  Hou and Huang (2015) state that the web application stores sensitive data, which is high risk.  4) Mobile Applications: High risk because of mobile app-specific vulnerabilities. Manivannan Lee Zhou (2021)  5) Database Protection: Very high risk because of weak access control or authentication (Hussain and colleagues, 2016).  Conclusion  To conclude, all five aforementioned areas are the key components of any penetration test and all have varying levels associated with the risks, with the most critical being operating system, web application and database protection.
