A penetration test can be an invaluable tool to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. Despite the necessity for these critical evaluations, many security teams struggle to maximize the effectiveness of pen tests in their organization.

In this webinar, Paul Asadoorian and Matt Alderman of Security Weekly will discuss the challenges of penetration testing, including talent, tools, and reporting of findings. Cybersecurity expert Steve Laubenstein, VP of Cyber Threat Security at Core Security, A HelpSystems Company will discuss and offer advice on the biggest struggles they see with penetration testing at different organizations, including:

  • Addressing the lack of pen testing talent
  • How organizations are leveraging pen testing
  • Why penetration testing is important in prioritizing remediation needs
