Assumed Breach: A Better Model For Penetration Testing
Join us at Way West Wild West Hackin’ Fest in Deadwood in September 2020: https://www.wildwesthackinfest.com/
The current model for penetration testing is broken. The typical scan and exploit model doesn’t reflect how real attackers operate after establishing a foothold. At the same time, most organizations aren’t mature enough to need a proper red team assessment. It’s time to start adopting the assumed breach model. In this talk, I’ll discuss techniques for assumed breach assessments that provide a better model for emulating the techniques attackers use once they’re they’ve established a foothold inside a typical network.
