It’s Time to Kill the Pentest

Posted on in Presentations

Penetration tests are a LOT of fun for the penetration tester. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot of value for the organizations footing the bill. Fundamentally, the penetration test hasn’t changed in decades. Like most compliance activities, it hasn’t made a dent in the onslaught of breaches we’re still seeing. Find out why this is and learn about a better approach we can start using immediately!

Learning Objectives:
1: Deconstruct the penetration test and the goals it originally set out to meet.
2: Highlight penetration test inefficiencies.
3: Explain what the ideal replacement for a pentest looks like.
