Attacking Your Own Network: A Lesson on Penetration Testing

1:30pm - 2:30pm Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Marcello 4401

Description

Penetration testing, red teaming, vulnerabilities, shells -- these terms are all thrown around regularly when the topic of security is broached. But, in most cases the lingo, and the concepts are scarier to the inexperienced than the benefits appear to be. This session will explore the key benefits of offensive security, and the common reasons why healthcare organizations are resistant to penetration testing. Key components of offensive assessments such as social engineering, phishing, and penetration testing will be also discussed. A certified ethical hacker will draw from his decade of experience on the offensive side of security to identify common problems, fears, and issues that have come up over the years. The provider perspective will offer real-world examples of how offensive security initiatives could have gone better, and how attendees can avoid similar issues. Attendees will also gain a stronger understanding of offensive assessments, and benefits to the organization.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain terms and techniques used by ethical hackers during offensive assessments
  • Discuss common issues that arise during these types of assessments and how to avoid them
  • Identify benefits of offensive security assessments and risks of not conducting them
  • Develop non-technical attendee’s perception of offensive assessments
