Room: Virtual
Cybersecurity, Data Privacy
Administrators, Teachers, Technology Leaders/Support

Do you feel like you are doing penetration testing enough? Do you feel you get what you want out of your penetration test? Penetration testing has been a fundamental component of a security program but is known to be costly, point in time exercises that doesn’t always give the best insight. With the ever-changing landscape of organizations, manual penetration testing isn’t always enough, especially as, the boundaries of the organization are pushed beyond the traditional network edge. This session will review the fundamentals of penetration testing but transition to reviewing a newer concept, continuous security validation, its comparison against other forms of penetration testing in the market, and its value. Some short simulations of the automated security validation solution to demonstrate its capabilities will be included in the presentation.
