Responsible for security assessments? You need to join me TODAY (Thursday, October 24)...

Blog Post created by kevinbeaver on Oct 23, 2013

TechTarget's is hosting a webcast that I'm presenting tomorrow (Oct. 24th) called What you need to know about security vulnerability assessments (that no one is willing to share). I've love it if you could join me!


Over the span of my entire career, I've worked in IT for 24+ years, information security for the last 18 years, and I've been performing independent information security assessments for the last 12 years. You wouldn't believe the mistakes I've made (and witnessed) and the security assessment wisdom I've gained in the process - some of which I've documented in my book Hacking For Dummies. Some of which I'll be sharing for the first time.


A few of the items I'll be discussing in this webcast are:

  • What you’re not going to dig up in vulnerability assessments (and how to properly set everyone’s expectations)
  • The assessment approach that’s guaranteed to help you find the most security holes
  • Vulnerability testing gotchas to avoid
  • Scoping your next assessment to maximize its value and minimize your effort
  • Top things that I do differently knowing what I now know about security testing


It'll be enlightening and possibly entertaining...


There's no registration, just add the calendar reminder here and you're good to go. It's a live presentation. We'll be giving away some signed copies of the latest edition of Hacking For Dummies too.


I hope to see you there!
