Penetration Testing: What to Expect When You're Expecting A Pen Test

Chad Horton, Senior Director of Penetration Testing and Terrill Thorn, Penetration Testing Manager

“We want to help you maximize analysts’ time and save money,” says Chad Horton. 

Time is money, and professional penetration testing is all about time: it takes time to research which firms are legitimate and thorough, time to understand what the test involves, time to scope your environment, and time to perform the test properly. Chad and Terrill explains to attendees the ways businesses commonly skimp on the time and due diligence involved, resulting in a weak and limited test. 

They went on to list out the reasons why penetration tests need to happen in a very specific way–these reasons can feel like sticking points for businesses, and they often result in wasted time. Ultimately, there are no shortcuts in penetration testing. The scenery is only found on the scenic route, and SecurityMetrics Penetration Testing Team is well traveled. Chad and Terrill uses case studies, stories, and years of experience to help attendees understand more deeply what a real penetration test takes. 


This webinar was hosted on September 24th, as part of SecurityMetrics Summit 2020.
