What did we discuss?
Penetration tests, done correctly, can be a powerful tool in a CISO's security toolkit, helping to make demonstrable, meaningful change to your security posture. We all know it's impossible to try to defend against the entire threat landscape, or to predict when the next cyber attack may be coming. Instead, a pragmatic approach needs to be taken, focusing on your organisation's crown jewels, as well as continuously keeping yourself honest.
Effective penetration tests can be a key tool in helping you to achieve this. Penetration tests should be a CISO's secret weapon, helping you to model cyber risk and reduce some of the unknowns, to report accurately to the board, and to put your business in the best position for a breach.
Unfortunately this isn't always a given, and many penetration tests across the industry fall short. In this webinar we discussed our top tips, based on years of experience and mistakes we see made every day, to help you really maximise the value from your next engagement and to ensure real, actionable results that actually help you and your security team.
