Prowling: Better Penetration Testing - J Wolfgang Goerlich Converge 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Prowling: Better Penetration Testing
J Wolfgang Goerlich

"But we passed our penetration test," the person handling the security breach groaned. "How come they missed this?" Since the late 1960s, penetration testing has been about two things: demonstrating that the system can be broken into and finding some vulnerabilities. But, by now? We all know systems can be broken into. The shock and surprise are gone. And we all know there are vulnerabilities. Scores of vulnerabilities. Too many vulnerabilities. In fact, arguably today,s penetration testing doesn,t even identify a fraction of the vulnerabilities. This session will review the state of testing strategies and present predictions on where penetration testing should go in the future

J Wolfgang Goerlich supports information security initiatives for clients in the healthcare, education, financial services, and energy verticals. In his current role with CBI, a cyber security consultancy, Wolfgang is the vice president for strategic security programs. Wolfgang also leads the Academy teams, providing mentoring and guidance to the junior-level talent. Wolfgang regularly advises on and presents on the topics of risk management, incident response, business continuity, secure development life cycles, and more.
