The Greater Augusta ISSA invites you to join us on Tuesday, May 6 for an exciting presentation by John Strand!
How to Fail at a Pen Test
In this presentation, John will cover some key components that many penetration tests lack, including why it is important to get caught, why it is important to learn from real attackers and how to gain access to organizations without sending a single exploit. Additionally, John will show you how to bypass "all powerful" white listing applications that are often touted as an impenetrable defense.
