Pentest Apocalypse - Beau Bullock (BSides Tampa 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Pentest Apocalypse
Beau Bullock

Pentest Apocalypse-That's when you hire a pentester, and they walk all over your network. To avoid this, organizations need to be prepared before the first packet is sent in order to get the most value from the tester. There is no excuse for pentesters to find critical vulnerabilities that are six years old on an assessment. And who needs a zero-day when employees leave credentials on wide-open shares? Just like how Doomsday Preppers helps you prepare for the apocalypse, this presentation will help you prepare for, and avoid, a pentest apocalypse by describing common vulnerabilities found on many assessments. Being prepared for common pentester activities will not only help add value to a pentest but will also help prevent attackers from using the same tactics to compromise your organization.
