Preparing and Getting the Most Out of Penetration Testing and Red Teaming

John Sawyer (Associate Director of Services, IOActive)

Date: Wednesday, October 24

Time: 1:45pm - 2:45pm

Session Type: Hot Topic

Vault Recording: TBD

If you want to learn where your organization is most vulnerable to cyberattack, you need to go hack yourself. But what’s the right way to test your IT environment for flaws? Should penetration testing be done by an internal team, or should you hire an outside firm? What are the key differences between pen testing and red teaming? How should your organization prepare for pen testing or red teaming – and how should the testers themselves be prepared? How should the testing be conducted, and what should the IT team do with the results? In this group discussion, moderated by IOActive red teaming expert John Sawyer, you’ll get answers to some of these key questions and have a chance to talk with your peers about the most effective ways to test your enterprise defenses.
