    There are professional organizations ("good" hackers) that can help you with this.  Start by reading this.

    Next, make a google search for "companies that do penetration testing" and read some of the links you find.  It is an interesting collection of varying opinions!  You might want to read this one first, and then ask yourself if penetration testing is really something that you want.  What is your expected work product?  What value will it give you?  What risk will it cause?  In any case, you must be absolutely certain that anyone involved in a pentest is bound by a non-disclosure agreement with teeth.

    Good luck with your project, ~Ray
