As more DoD weapon and mission support systems become software dependent and networked, government agencies are being increasingly exposed to severe cybersecurity vulnerabilities. This webinar will help DoD agencies and systems integrators, who support them, understand how pentesting can help secure next-generation weapons and mission support systems.

We’ve been conducting pen tests for decades, but with the technology evolution we’ve seen radical changes in today’s networks, including ubiquitous encryption, the death of the traditional network perimeter, and the advent of new endpoint devices, including a myriad of IoT devices.

Join our webinar as CompTIA’s chief technology evangelist and Global Knowledge’s federal sales director discuss how pentesting has morphed. You’ll learn the relevant skills that a pen tester should have today, how organizations use a pen tester, and how to usefully “digest” information gained from a pen test.   

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • How the IT environment has changed radically in the last five years
  • Penetesting challenges DoD agencies face today
  • Responsible pen testing and the hacker lifecycle: Why does the pen tester even exist?
  • Understanding the “hacker’s dilemma”
  • The “hacker’s dilemma” and the hacker lifecycle: Mapping IoCs to steps in the hacker process
  • Responsible pentesting: A demo
