  • The movie “Shooter” gives a classic example. A US Marine sharpshooter is brought back from retirement to help prevent the assassination of the US President. The President is visiting three cities and they want him to identify the venue where the killer may make the attempt. The hero checks out the three cities, the President’s program, the venues and the surroundings and comes up with his recommendation. Turns out that the guys who had called him back wanted to kill the President and the movie is about how they use his intelligence and then frame him. Of course, eventually, he thinks like them and kills them all. 10/06/10

  • Leverage the Technology Solution <version 1.0> Public Document
  • Leverage the Technology Solution <version 1.0> Public Document Results allow the organization to compare findings against known vulnerabilities and prioritize remediation by implementing controls. Provides a health report on the organization security posture. All Standards, Regulations, Frameworks recommend (or require) Network Assessments as an essential practice. Helps determine whether the controls are in fact preventing the vulnerability from actually endangering the network. A well-executed penetration test can identify the most critical holes in an organization’s defensive net; including the holes exploited by social engineering. pen tests are best used as a way to get an extra set of eyes on a network after major system upgrades. Vulnerability Assessment (VA) Penetration Testing (PT)

  • Why VA/PT <version 1.0> Public Document
    • To catch a thief….. You have to think like one.
    • You hack into your network to do a Vulnerability Assessment (VA), identifying “vulnerabilities” in the same manner as they may be visible to an intruder like open ports.
    • Following up a VA is the Penetration Test – you are taking advantage of the ‘vulnerabilities’ by “penetrating” the network.
    • When you test all IP addresses that are visible to the outside world you can get answers to sticky questions like:
        • Can an intruder hop on to the conference room network ?
        • Is it possible for the intruder to connect to the database server ?
        • What can you do (that which no one wants an intruder to do!) ??
