Webinar: Myth busting for SMEs – how and why penetration testing can be your secret weapon
Not all penetration tests are created equal, but they can and should be your secret weapon in your IT or security toolbox. With tighter budgets and a shortage of skills, choosing services and vendors that provide real added value is all the more important, so we’ll be busting through some of the pentesting myths and noise in the market to help you do that!

Date: 27th September 2023

Time: 15.00 - 16.00

Penetration testing can truly be a game changer for companies of all sizes, from SMEs to large enterprises. Whether you run these four times a year or are planning your first, a good test can help you identify and remediate vulnerabilities, better inform your security roadmap and budget allocation, and offer valuable learning opportunities for your team. In short, penetration testing should ultimately strengthen your overall security posture.  

However, there are many variations of pentests in the market, with the standard trending to a tick box exercise with a generic, 100-page report you will never read… the “click, scan, print, ignore” service if you will. Whilst compliance and ticked boxes are needed, you are likely leaving value on the table. In this session we’ll run through several common industry myths around pentesting, and, importantly, best practices you can use to make sure your next engagement makes meaningful change to your cyber maturity and allows you to get more from your budget.
