Webinar Recording: 30-minute TECH Talks | Penetration Testing

Stroz Friedberg is a specialized risk management firm built to help clients solve the complex challenges prevalent in today’s digital, connected, and regulated business world

Organizations must have a clear understanding of how secure their applications are. But what is the best approach to maximize their value and level of security assurance?

There are several ‘traditional’ ways by which security assurance can be achieved for applications. This includes black-box penetration testing, threat modelling, code reviews, etc. But in the real world there are constraints such as time, cost and amount of information that can be shared with third parties. Whether you are coming from a boardroom, technical or compliance background, the question is always “how can we get a high level of security assurance and still work within these constraints?”.

This talk discusses a process of security testing referred to as “Hybrid Security Assessments” – an integrated approach to provide flexibility and maximize value. Using real life examples from previous assessments, we will discuss some security issues which would likely have been missed with the usual ‘traditional’ black-box penetration testing approach. Lastly, we will  explore some of the tools and techniques we have developed, which enable us to provide clients with maximum coverage within limited timescales.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to make an informed decision when requesting penetration tests
  • Understand the benefits of hybrid security assessment over traditional black-box

Who should attend:

  • Information security professionals
  • Risk, compliance and audit professionals

We have collected and summarized some of the top questions we received from this webinar. Read our TECH Talk Q&A > Penetration Testing here.
