SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT - Brent White - Common Assessment Mistakes Pen Testers and Clients Should Avoid

SkyDogCon is proud to announce that Brent White will be speaking again at SkyDogCon 7.  Brent will be sharing his vast pentesting experience and try to keep us out of the potholes and problems he has seen.


The sample of common mistakes that we are providing can cause problems on both sides of the table, but can ultimately end up affecting the client in a negative way. Allowing these to occur also prevents the ability to provide a realistic view of a company’s security posture. This could also lead to a future compromise, or even avoiding detection of a previous compromise—which can of course lead to a whole other set of issues for them. If you are interested in a more accurate view of your state of security, and wish to be better prepared against real world attacks, preventing any of these issues is certainly a step in the right direction!
